Robert Rowan, Brentford's Technical Director sadly passed away of heart failure age 26. I've never met Robert but reading the program notes and just being at today's game photographing you know he was loved by the club and played a major part to the growing success of Brentford FC. A just giving page has been set up in memory of Robert Rowan https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/robert-rowan-5

 

Today's game was the day I got to use Fuji's latest lens - Filmfilm Fujinon XF 200mm F2. With Kick-off at 17:30 it would be the perfect test to see how good this lens would be in low light condition played at a fast pace.

Unfortunately not the greatest of games and badly positioned myself at the wrong end of the pitch the lens was still put through it paces and I was able to capture key moments of the game. Middlesbrough eventually came out 1-2  winners and moved to second place in the championship two points behind the leaders Norwich.

My final game of 2017, Charlton Athletic Vs Blackpool. Both teams in need of three points but it was Charlton who was unable to convert a hatful of chances. The game finished 1-1

Looking forward to 2018 and shooting more games.

Frozen In Motion Sports Photography Agency gave me the opportunity to photograph England Vs Germany, International friendly at Wembley.

An amazing experience to be surrounded by so many sport photography professionals all trying to capture the shots that tell the story of the match and printed in the next day papers.

I was pleased to find out one of my images made front page of the sport supplement of The Guardian the following day after the match with the heading 'The Flying Pickford'

Barnet Vs Colchester United 11 November 2017

With International friendlies and some important World Cup deciders their were no Premiership or Championship games this weekend but some very good games still available to shoot in League One and League Two. I decided to make the trip to The Hive Stadium for Barnet and Colchester United. Barnet were in need of three points and I thought the first half they played well and bossed the game. Unfortunately Colchester popped up with a late winner from Sammie Szmodics and Colchester went on to claim all three points. 

Love their little stadium. Nice family feel and a great place to photograph. Will definitely be back before the end of the season.

Swindon Town made it look easy as they scored five against National League South side Dartford in the FA Cup first round win.

Timi Elsnik scored twice, Harry Smith's right-foot drive before half time and Amine Linganzi added a fourth before Paul Mullin scored a fifth goal.

Dartford scored a late goal through centre-back Richard Sho Silva.

Fulham Vs Bristol City 31 October 2017

Fulham were beaten 2-0 by Bristol City at Craven Cottage on Tuesday evening with Aboubakar Kamara sent off in the second half but at this point the damage was already done and Bristol City controlling the game.

Bobby Reid opened the scoring inside half an hour with Korey Smith adding a second before the break. Comfortable winners for Bristol City moving them up to fourth in the table.

A tough night to shoot in very low light conditions and not much action where I was placed.

Crystal Palace Vs Ipswich Town - Carabao Cup Second Round 22 August 2017

Posted at 10:27

I was very fortunate to have been given the opportunity by my local news paper the News Shopper to shoot a Premiership side in the Carabao Cup Second Round. Crystal Palace faced an inform Ipswich Town at Selhurst Park knowing it would be a difficult home game for them. A late James McArthur brace put Crystal Palace through to the third round. Definitely want to shoot more football games and sport in general but realised it's all in the lenses. The lens I had wasn't great and involved me doing a lot of cropping. Difficult to keep up with those who have there 600mm prime lens. Definitely going in thr right direction.
