Wings For Life World Run
Wings for Life is a spinal cord research charity that has all its administrative costs covered by Red Bull. The aim of the charity, which was founded in 2003, is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. As part of the fundraising that is required to pay for the research, this year Wings For Life organised the World Run - thirty four race tracks across thirty three countries with almost 140,000 runners all setting off at exactly the same time.

The UK's race was at Silverstone and not only encompassed the race track but also the surrounding villages and countryside of Northamptonshire. I was asked to shoot some images for the runners handbook and although it was actually quite a challenging shoot (for several reasons) it was a real fun shoot and I got to race my car around Silverstone race track as we went form one location to another. Not everyday you get to do that!
