Ten Sports Photographed in 2022

Ten Sports I’ve Photographed in 2022 Personally, 2022 has been a mixed bag for taking action photos. I’ve shot over 700 football matches over the years but this past twelve months has probably been the leanest of them all. The free time allowed me to expand my photography. Here’s ten sports I snapped in 2022. Football We’ll start with the staple of them all. Mainly because this image was taken right at the start of the new year. AFC Varndeanians versus Newhaven at the [...]

A Personal Year in Sport

A Personal Year in Sport Personally, 2019 was another highly enjoyable year for photographing sport. My passion took me to a variety of places covering a plethora of events. From Budapest to, err… the Isle of Wight, here’s just a few of my own highlights of the past twelve months. January – Pro Wrestling - Wimbledon This one was a completely new to me.

15 Beautiful Village Cricket Clubs

15 Beautiful Village Cricket Clubs Quintessential English summer scenes; the sound of leather on willow. Balmy Sunday afternoons on a village green. Gentle wind whispering in the overhanging trees.

Last year, the Cricket season flourished courtesy of a three-month drought. This enabled me to visit a plethora of beautiful village cricket venues without the need to check a weather forecast.

When You Win the Playoff Final – But You Don’t

When You Win the Playoff Final - But You Don't Met Police FC bested Poole Town on Monday to lift the Southern League Premier South Playoff Final trophy. Ordinarily, this would result in a promotion. However, this season is a little different. Metropolitan Police Football Club have massively over-achieved this season.

When Football Photos Go Viral

When Football Photos Go Viral In the modern age of social media, instant sharing of images can take photos around the world in minutes. I've had two notable cases of this with my photography this season - both during a football match. The first saw Enfield Town goalkeeper Joe Wright emerged from the half time team talk. He was gifted a couple of chips and a swig of Guinness from the opposition fans behind the goal. The photo, first posted on Twitter and Instagram [...]

Why Black and White Photography Works with Sport

Why Black and White Photography Works with Sport I’m a firm believer that photography should be awash with colour. Our world is stunning, enriched with amazing hues. I’m writing this looking out of my window at the blue skies and beautiful trees. Sports photography is about colour too; colours are intrinsic to a team. Sponsors want their logos shown in all their glory. Great sports photos are bursting with colour. But you cannot ignore the power of black and white photography. Used well, it’s [...]

We all want the best photos of our kids enjoying themselves but there are welfare and safeguarding issues to take into consideration before doing so. Chatting to someone involved with the FA believes it’s a real shame that many kid’s developmental years are just not being captured due to these concerns.
