It seems that by a process of osmosis, or maybe happenstance, I might be evolving into a sports photographer!
I never planned this, and maybe I will shoot off in another direction next week, who knows. Recently I have shot two football events for kids in our area. The first one involved the Worthies Under 7s team, for which my youngest son plays, the second was for the Soccer Schools UK organisation.
The Soccer Schools event was held in Winchester Stadium and involved, I would guess, around 200 kids of varying ages. Every child got at least 3 games of football under the watchful eye of the coaches who did a marvellous job with organising everyone.
The only slight downside for me was my newest telephoto lens taking a whack from a well aimed football, but the Sigma Sport (150-600) lens are well built and mine survived the attack unscathed!
I came home with about a thousand images from this last event and culled that down to around 400 of the better ones. Parents were provided with a link to view the gallery and order anything they might like.
So, I wonder what's next on the sports front then? Watch this space, or perhaps contact me if you would like it to be your next event.
