Sports Photography

As a creative photographer I bring some artfulness to the business of sports photography – always thinking about composition; context and setting.

Within sport there is all that it is to be human – we thrill to the challenge; there is drama in the contest; tension in expectation of success or failure; and the sheer joy of achievement. Sports photography is more than capturing the action – although that is central – it should also be about the drama – capturing people when they are at the peak of their lives – capturing the “decisive moment”, as Henri Cartier-Bresson called it.

A few years ago I apprenticed myself to Jem Hall, one of the world’s leading windsurf coaches, and by working with him, not only have I learnt a huge amount about the sport – but also what makes a great windsurf shot. When I look through the viewfinder not only am I anticipating “the moment” – for the best action shot – I am also considering the composition for the best commercial impact, whether for sponsors, venues or magazine layouts.

My photos have appeared in magazines all around the world, including Windsurf magazine, Windsurfing Now and 4windsurf magazine. In addition I have a host of happy customers.
