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.
First up with the Brazilian Caipirinha himself: Wagner Araujo!
Araujo has been a triathlon photographer and himself a triathlete for more than 10 years. His passion for the sport and photography put him on the map when he won a National Geographic photo contest in 2013. His image from the start line of an aquathlon race is still one of the few multisport images inside of the NatGeo archives. In the same year, he covered his first race for ITU, the duathlon race at the Cali World Games. Then in 2015, he became one of our main photographers, specializing mostly with the races in the Americas.
Araujo's work is more than just filling the frame with pixels, it's about how to capture sports and outdoor emotions and feeling through light, as well as by creating unique perspectives that only can be achieved by whom has already felt the same feelings and emotions.
Here is a collection of fifteen photos that Araujo has selected to showcase his best work from the 2017 season. So enjoy his gallery and make sure to see his past, present and future work shared on the @worldtriathlon social media channels and follow Araujo on Instagram @wags.photo.
