24/09/2016. Spelthorne Sports v Guildford City. Guildford City Dan HARDING’s shot saved by keeper

Disappointing result against Spelthorne, but not for the lack of trying, City should have been several goals to the good by half time, but despite beating their goal keeper on numerous occasions the strikers just couldn’t find the back of the net. Sometimes shit just happens. Hey ho on to the next one.. at home to Raynes Park on Wednesday. #UpTheCity

Player Profile Photos

img_3203-editNeeded to shoot some player profile photos, so the studio kit travelled to  the Spectrum Stadium, the only useable space is a a store room, the clubhouse would be suitable if it was empty, but as fans are wanting beer I set up temporary home in a cupboard.

Not exactly the most salubrious of spaces, shared as it was with javelins, hammers & various other bits of athletics equipment. However, after 20 minutes of setting up, we were ready to work through the list. Some players were unavailable so we will be back again.

After the highs of Wednesday night with a 7-3 victory against local rivals Farnham Town, Guildford were unable to replicate that sort of form at the weekend. Going behind to a solitary goal, they fashioned a few chances but couldn’t find the back of the net.

Always The Sun..

11/09/2016. Always The Sun Festival. The Dub Pistols on Stage

Long day, I was working at the Always The Sun Festival on Sunday, properly worn out, walked miles & miles, maybe even more than that. Main thing was at least the weather was good, would have been miserable if it had been like Saturday. Some great acts on the main stage, most of whom I had never heard of, but great non-the-less.

Needless to say, but I will anyway, with the idea of yomping miles with all the kit didn’t impress, so two bodies, 17-40mm & 70-200mm, one flash & an iPad to tweet the pics regularly during the day for the client.

After nearly 10 hours I was struggling, having only gone wearing chinos & a polo I had neglected to take a jacket or fleece with me, so was a bit chilly at nearly 10pm. It is amazing how quickly warm summer evenings disappear to be replaced by chilly autumnal ones.
