After over 25 years of coaching it was finally time to put the stash away. I missed the buzz of Saturday afternoon club and Wednesday school rugby, so picked up a camera and started snapping away. The more photographs I took the better I got (funny what practise does), with the camera settings becoming more intuitive, I could concentrate on the subject, which is where all those years of coaching came in handy.​
I have now progressed to regulary spending Saturday afternoons' encamped behind the dead ball line, waiting to fire away and getting a number of photos published in The Rugby Paper. I have taken photos for:

England Counties u18s

Ireland Clubs & Schools u18s

England Counties SW u18's

Chinnor RFC (Nat 1)

Maidenhead RFC (SW Premier)

Apache 7s

Caldicott School

Legend Holidays & Events

CLIC Sargent 

At this time I am interested in gaining as much experience as possible, so if you would like me to photograph your sporting fixture or event and you're in the Bucks, Berks, Hants or London areas, please contact me.
