Football fever pitch

It is a fair guess to say that many of you will know the England football team beat Colombia on Tuesday to secure a place in the next stage of the World Cup. Those of you who don’t live in England will probably not know that chants of “it’s coming home…” can be heard all around me (it being the cup, home being back in England for the first time since 1966). Since this is the state of my adopted country, I couldn’t resist sending you a football photo.

It’s not the World Cup, but I like the drama of this shot. You know that the poor goalie can do nothing to stop what happens next. I shoot all sorts of private events for clients and this was definitely one of the most fun for me to photograph. It was a five-a-side

football tournament organised by BW Workplace Experts to raise money for the music therapy organisation Nordoff Robbins. Eighteen teams participated in three hours of matches, all in the name of charity and good competitive fun.

If you have an event you need photographed, don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how I can help you out.

In other news, I will have two photographs on display at the Artists United exhibit at Fitzroy House, High Street, Lewes. There is always an interesting collection of art at this is annual event that raises money for our local, community-owned football club (more football connections…), so make sure to catch it if you can. The exhibit is up from Thursday to Saturday, 12-14 July.
