Published in Wingfoot | davem photography

Last week I got an e-mail informing me that not only did some of my images make it into Wingfoot, but one of them also made the cover.
Wingfoot is The Atlanta Track Club's full-color, monthly magazine and serves as a resource for metro-area running news, feature stories, calendars, race results, and photos highlighting club members and activities.

If you've followed this blog, you may remember that I shot the Atlanta Track Club Women's 5k back in March. It was my first time shooting for the Atlanta Track Club, so I was surprised that one of my images made the cover. When I was informed, I immediately knew which image made the cover.

Here's what Tracy Lott from The Atlanta Track Club had to say; "That was actually our favorite image from the race. It definitely makes for a great cover shot! (Not to mention, our sponsor, Adidas is absolutely going to love it)". Looks like all the practice I got between the trail race & the track meet paid off. I've got to say, some luck was involved as well. The runner, Andrea Lockhart, looked right at the camera, waved and I was able to capture the image at the perfect moment. Shooting with a 70-200 mm at f/2.8 allowed everyone behind her to go out of focus, so she's able to stand out in the image.

I also got a couple of other images inside. I got a total of six images including the cover for my first time shooting for The Atlanta Track Club. The rest of the images were by photographer Dutch Walters.

Here are some shots from the inside of the magazine.
Thank you Tracy Lott & The Atlanta Track Club for this opportunity. I look forward to shooting the next event. For those of you that are runners, you should consider becoming a member. They do a fantastic job putting together the AJC Peachtree Road Race, the largest 10k in the country as well as many other local races.
