I love football, not just watching my own team the mighty Arsenal, but any football match, from Premiership to non league (OK, I will not go and watch pub football), It doesn’t matter if it is on TV or live, I love it.
At live games, it’s the atmosphere, and also the excellent views that I am fortunate to get, sitting on the touchline.
Many of my friends (that are not photographers) regularly ask to be my assistant on match days, and they are deeply envious. I was very lucky to end up doing football pics for the national papers. I was working for an agency, that didn’t do any sport, so I blagged a press pass to cover Reading FC versus Bristol Rovers using the Agency’s credentials, with their permission obviously.
