Kevin Steele wins the 'Best of Show' in APA 2013 Awards for his 'Santa Barbara Triathlon' photo. Kevin captured the excitement and the energy of that day.

"As I've done for three years now, in late August I photographed the Santa Barbara Triathlon - focusing on telling the story of the one of longest running triathlons in the US in unique ways for the client and sponsors. The race director, aware that I'm also pretty athletic, allows me complete access to get extremely close with the athletes. I just have to be very aware of what is happening around me and stay out of their way. At 7:30am this was literally within my first dozen frames of the day as the elite triathletes charged into the ocean. Ten seconds later I was still with them, swimming shoulder deep with my camera."

"The SB Triathlon has resulted in a body of athletic and emotional work that I'm proud of - I just let intuition get in the drivers seat and wrap myself in the moment. Work from last years triathlon is now in the upcoming AI-AP American Photography 29 as well as the soon to be released Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers."
