On Tour: Scott Mitchell Photography

Photographer Scott Mitchell met Bradley Wiggins back in 2010, with the pair hitting it off pretty much instantly due to their shared passion for scooters, Northern soul and a very particular style of haircut. Just six weeks before the start of the Tour de France, Scott received a Tweet from Bradley asking for his mobile number. His request?  “As it turned out, he wanted me to go along to the Tour and photograph what he goes through at the biggest cycling race in the world”. The much-photographed Bradley chose Scott as he wasn’t a sports photographer, and he wanted a new and fresh approach.

Scott has chosen a selection of shots from the past few months that capture some key moments from behind the scenes. His distinctive style has proved so popular that he’s now the official Team Sky photographer and his work can be seen through a series of galleries on their site, as well as on his own blog.

"The riders accent Le Tourmalet on stage 16 as I wait to shoot them at the summit." - Scott Mitchell

Scott's photographs following Bradley and the team's historic success at this year's Tour de France are still available to view on Team Sky's official site, with a possible book in the pipeline for later this year. In the meantime, he continues to shadow the team across various trips including the current Vuelta a Espana.
