THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK 2014 WERE
TIM WRIGHT, TED MARTIN & KEVIN JOHNSON.
When you see a photographer right in the centre of the action in a 12 foot inflatable, you know you’ve found Tim Wright. Starting in 1994 as a means to earn a living, Tim now lives much of the year on his sailing boat in the Caribbean regatta photography. His maneuverability on the water gives his shots a while different perspective, literally. Experience his thrills at www.photoaction.com
It is rare for any major event in Antigua not to be attended by Ted and his camera. His heritage and life in Antigua mean that for him it is more than just capturing the moment, it’s thinking past the moment to ensuring that as often as possible, when someone looks at the shot, there is no mistake where in the world they were.

From his childhood games with Dad’s Box Brownie, Kevin has retained a love of photography throughout his lifetime. Having lived and worked around the world, Antigua has been his home for more than fifteen years, and his love of marine life and water remain important in his work.

An understanding of light a passion for capturing the energy and grace of the sea is Paul’s driving force. Along with his background in design and experience on the sea teaching sailing, boat building and working for the RYA, Paul brings an energy to his still photography. Each shot is literally a freeze frame of action. Immerse yourself in his work at www.pwpictures.com
Having sailed his family across the Atlantic on his own yacht, professional photographer Jason found a new home in Antigua, where he has been running his busy photography business from his studio gallery in English Harbour, the heart of yachting, for four years. Look out for Jason on the water in his new, zippy, pale green 14ft hardboat – he’ll be out in the thick of the action every day. Jason’s passion for yachting action photography is evident, and you can sense the adrenalin and fun through his images – especially as he nips under the bow of yachts racing towards him. You can see his work anytime in the studio gallery; photos from each racing day will be available around 6pm that evening, so come on in. Jason posted over 6,000 images from last year’s Antigua racing season – check them out at www.jasonpickering.com.
