Today is the annual event where the International Triathlon Union @worldtriathlon give me the password to their Instagram account for the day. Be afraid, be very afraid. 😂

Last Sunday passed like many of my other Sundays. I spent the day shooting Triathlon.
This day was a touch different. It marked a special anniversary.
30 years ago I walked through an invisible door. On the other side of the door was the 1988 Nepean Triathlon.
This was my first photo. Nick Croft. I wont even try to estimate the number of pics I have taken since then.
I walked into a sport and lifestyle that has defined my life and career.
I've seen boys grow into men, girls into women. I now photograph the competing Tri-children of those same Triathletes.
I've seen the sport grow from a health activity into an Olympic sport. I am also proud to have photographed a sport that practised gender equality from Day 1. Equal prizemoney and equality for females. Today Triathlon is the only Olympic sport lead by a female, Marisol Casado.
On calculating averages and adding the days together, I have spent approximately 6 actual years of my life committed to being at a Triathlon. Around 2000 days.
I have travelled to over 35 countries around the world. I have a family of Tri-friends in just about every country around the world. I have dined with royalty, Kings Queens Princes and Princesses. I have been the best man to Triathlete’s weddings, godfather to their children, and there isn't a country on this planet where I couldn't call on a friend for anything.
I have photographed, partied, celebrated, laughed, cried and grown older with Olympic Champions, World Champions, Australian Champions, and the greatest frickin bunch of athletes in the sporting world.
There is a belongingness, a familyness, and a basic love and care by all for all in the sport.
Triathlon Photography is my Ikigai. My 'purpose in life', the reason why I get out of bed each Sunday.

Two of my favourite people in Triathlon .... Tbone and Xena.
@terenzo1 ~ 5 months of rehabilitation after being struck by a logging truck which threatened life and career. Wow.
@caroline_xena ~ 3 years since her last professional Ironman Race. Wow.
Both winners of today's West Australian Ironman Triathlon.

It’s official …. I’ll be joining Neville Brody, Carol Guzy, Jill Furmanovsky, Miho Odaka and others on the Judging Jury for the prestigious 37th Nikon Photo Contest in Tokyo in June next year. I am so excited to be part of this amazing group of creatives. It will be an amazing two weeks.

It will also mark the 50th anniversary of the first Nikon Photo Contest.

The Nikon Photo Contest International has been held by Nikon Corporation since 1969 providing an opportunity for photographers around the world to enrich the image-making culture for all photographers. 'Change' has been chosen as the theme for the Open Award in the Nikon Photo Contest 2018-2019. Change is all around us, and it comes in many forms. It ranges from minor alterations in daily trivia that we are apt to overlook to major developments that can move society and change the world.

The theme for the Next Generation Award, targeted at those 25 years old and under, is ‘Identity'. In the decades to come, individuality will surely count for a great deal.

The theme for the Short Film Award is ‘Hope’. "Hope springs eternal in the human breast". Possessing a feeling of hope is certainly vital for anyone as they take a step towards tomorrow.

Change, Identity, and Hope. What a wonderful perspective on life.

I am so privileged and pumped to invite all my photo friends to take part in the 2018-2019 Nikon Photo Contest.

Well, it's one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, cat, go
But don't you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes
