"Vintners Velo"


June 2023, I joined the Vintners Velo Cycle Team on their NC500 charity ride of Scotland.  My aim was to not only photographically record the event, but also to capture the amazing variety of landscapes along the 500 mile route.  Seeing the cyclist “in the landscape” I felt was important to give one a sense of distance, scale and grandeur of the bonny country of Scotland. However, you will also find plenty of shots without a cyclist in sight! Some of these taken while traveling the same NC500 route in 2021.


I had been thinking about those “Heroic” Edwardian Adventures and Explorers, and how they were depicted in early photographs, this was a style I wanted to try and create in portraits of our four cyclists.   In addition, there was always going to be plenty of behind the scenes photos, candid shots of all that were involved.  Finally, there are moments when I went “ off-piste”, moved away from the cycling and went were my eye took me.


So with the above in mind, I have broken down the overall NC500 Vintners Velo Collection of photographs into four sub-collection sets, each with their individual themes:-
