Back to Big Red Run
Brad Baker Photography will again be doing the stills photography for the Big Red Run 2016.
For the last two years I have been shooting the event and it is an amazing experience. The Simpson Desert landscape is breathtaking and very special in its own right. The terrain varies from steep sand dunes to salt plains, bush scrub, gibber plains and farm tracks. The Brook Family also allows access for the Big Red Run to areas not normally open to the public. The runners experience this along with their struggles, joys and sense of achievement at the finish. The final day is very emotional and many friends will be made during the event! I hope to again be able to capture this with my camera.
About the event
The event is a 250km marathon over 6 days in the Simpson Desert, Australia with approximately 100 runners taking part. The BRR begins and ends at Birdsville, Queensland. It consists of a daily marathon and a double marathon on day 5! The runners camp out in the desert before starting the next days section
Preparations are well underway and I will be heading out before the event to brush up on my time-lapse skills (more on that subject later stay tuned!). It will take about 4 days of driving to reach Birdsville and we will be heading via Cunnamulla and Innaminka to get into the outback lifestyle. We are travelling by 4×4 and hope to be trialling a new tent and other camping gear in addition to some new camera gadgets and a hot water bottle for the cold nights.
Only a few months till June 26-30th and I am really looking forward to meeting this year’s runners and also seeing the event organisers and awesome team of volunteers again.
