Hamish Roots

Hamish Roots is a professional photographer working throughout the UK and abroad. As an experienced oarsman his more artistic approach to rowing photography stems from a passion for and involvement in the sport for over 20 years, through strong compositions he seeks to bring the viewer closer to the moment so they may better understand and appreciate what athletes experience – both on and off the water. Hamish is often commissioned by organisations throughout the rowing sphere such as federations, rowing clubs, equipment manufacturers and major sponsors.
