Spartan Race – Atlanta

Long time no update! Plenty going on the past few weeks and so much to bring you all up to speed on. Last weekend I had the pleasure of flying to Atlanta as a photographer for Reebok’s Spartan Race. In case you are unfamiliar, these races are a grueling obstacle course/run designed to promote teamwork and test your physical ability. I love traveling to shoot these events because they’re fun, outside and my access to make great images has no limits. There are so many inspiring people racing in these events such as paraplegic Michael Mills and triple amputee Todd Love. Also, when part of your job description includes photographing Alicia Keys how could you go wrong? Have a look at some of the images I made below.

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.

    Spartan Race would have been way too intense for me! lol But looks like it was fun for the participants. Great pictures, as well.

    Good stuff, Ryan! I shot a Rugged Maniac (mud run, but much less intense than Spartan Races) last July and enjoy shooting these events: http://jerseystylephotography.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/there-will-be-mud/

    That said, I’m doing Spartan Race NJ this September. AROO!
