At ITU, we are so lucky to work with some of the best triathlon photographer's in the world. Capturing events such as the World Triathlon Series, World Cups and the Multisport World Championships, their images showcase the beauty and power of our sport. So we are so pleased to draw the attention over to them and put them in the spotlight to allow them to share with triathlon fans across the globe what their favourite photos were from the 2017 season.
This week we are so pleased to showcase the work from the Hungarian Wonder, Janos Schmidt!
Janos is based in Budapest and is one of the O.G. photographers for ITU, after having shot his first event with us in 2007, he just completed his 10th year of triathlon! Janos has a unique eye that brings a special talent to his race photos. Take a close look at his galleries as he always has the ability to capture the best facial expressions of the athletes, something that has become somewhat of a signature move in his photos for ITU.
However, despite his creativity to capture swimming, biking and running, Janos is not a full-time sports photographer. In fact, he is an award-winning and world-renowned photojournalist. Some of his accolades include winning the prize for Best Sport and Best News Picture in his home nation of Hungary. He also has won multiple awards for his mobile photography, where he captures street pictures in black and white.
Here Janos showcases 20 of his favourite photos from the 2017 season, so enjoy his picks and make sure to follow him on Instagram @janosmschmidt
