Yiannis is the GB Aquathlon team captain, 2018 National Gold Medalist (Age Group) 2017 National Silver Medalist (Age Group) 2016 National and European Bronze Medalist (Age Group) 2016 National and European Bronze Medalist Representing Great Britain in the 2017 European and World Aquathlon Championships (Age Group). He only started taking up Athletics in 2012 after being inspired by the 2012 London Olympics.

We are going to be doing some more dramatic photos in the Summer, today was juts a chance to get some fresh images incorporating some new kit and sponsors. Using the Innovation Centre offices and areas outside worked well, especially with the strong winds and 4 degree temperatures on a very fresh Saturday morning. I used the trio of Profoto A1, B1 and B2 lights to add some depth to the portraits, the rippled sky added some drama to the top image as well.
