Live music and sports photography
Southampton FC is my local Premiership club. I was pitch-side as photographer for 3 games in 2017.
I was also the photographer for Saint's new signing Wesley Hoedt
I was asked to come to the club's Staplewood Training and Development Centre to get images of Wesley Hoedt arriving and signing for Saints in the press room. I was the only photographer there so the pressure was on to get the photo. We then went on to the stadium for more photos.
It was a really interesting day with the images appearing on the Saint's website that evening:
I even appeared in the behind the scenes video!
Cool to see my photo used later in the season too:
Often with the creative work I do there is some sort of music connection. Taking pictures at live shows is brilliant to do and for sure there is an art to it as the stage lights are constantly changing. It is cool when your image ends up being used as a tour poster or ends up in a magazine or on a website.
