Daniel Makes Irish Runner Front Cover

On Saturday I was thrilled to spot the new issue of Irish Runner had hit the shelves, but also that the front cover featured a picture that first appeared on RacePix.com a few months back. The photo in question is from the Connemarathon in March and was taken by friend of RacePix and regular contributor to the site Daniel Kowalczyk. I remember the day of the Connemarathon Daniel texted me to let me know that he’d taken the best running photo of his career. How fitting that the photo should end up on the front cover of the premier Irish running magazine. On Saturday after seeing the photo I got in touch with Daniel to offer my congratulations and found out that this was the first time he’d made the front cover of a magazine so he was naturally delighted.

It’s a little over a year since I first met Daniel at the Dublin Track and Field Championships in 2009. He took a great picture of me coming paddy last in the 3,000m that night (although he kindly said it looks like I’m winning!). Since then the top quality collection of snaps of me running has increased with Daniel also catching me finishing the Dublin 10 Mile Championships last year, running the BHAA Pearl Izumi 10km and he also got a few snaps of me in photo action to boot.

Daniel has popped up time and again at races about the place, most recently the Great Limerick Run, while in the past 18 months I can remember him snapping at the Adidas Race Series, the Adamstown 8km, the Lucan 5km, the AAI Family Fitness Day, the Blessington Lakes 10km, Rathfarnham and Malahide Castle 5ks. Unfortunately for my own photo collection Daniel moved to Galway where he has continued snapping at local races by getting great shots at the Fields of Athenry 10km and the inaugural Craughwell 10 Miler this year.

His portfolio doesn’t stop with Sports Photography. Daniel also does Wedding photography (his wedding portfolio includes possibly the coolest wedding photo of all times), Family photography and Portraits. If you’ve a few minutes to spend I highly recommend checking out the various places that Daniel’s photos can be found.
