Welcome to The Picture Runner!
Hi, I’m Alexia, a runner and amateur photographer. This blog is a blending of my two hobbies. The idea is to capture at least one decent image during each run. Afterwards I post my pictures here along with my mileage and other aspects of the run.
How did I get started?
I’ve been a runner since high school, but I’m still a new photographer. I came up with the picture runner at a time when I was trying to grow my portfolio. I felt like I was in a photography rut and was brainstorming new material when it popped into my head. Lots of people take pictures of their runs with their phone, but what about running with an SLR? Is it even possible? I did a trial run – sort of a proof of concept. It worked! It was fun! And I was hooked.
The first thing I did was research a proper pack for my camera. Those National Geographic guys must carry their cameras in something besides a shoulder bag, right? It was just a matter of finding it. I came across the LowePro pack for the athlete photographer and watched their video about the pack. I knew it was perfect for my endeavor.
Where am I now?
I’m just getting started. I have pages of ideas for this blog in my idea book and I can’t wait to see where it takes me. Please feel free to comment, critique, or make suggestions. You can contact me here or if you want to email me at “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
I hope you join me as I rack up the miles and strive to become a better photographer along the way.
Thanks for stopping in,
