A first opportunity to photograph this fast moving game at The Wimbledon Club for UKSportspics.
The Optasia Championship is a key part of the PSA international programme and held over a week during June. An exciting line up of players made for close match play along with a few upsets. As a photographer shooting from a limited vantage point behind the glass back wall; the challenge was mostly anticipation of the play and working to get both the player and ball in the frame.
My first experience of Hurling courtesy of Coiste CLG Contae Londian GAA and the opportunity to photograph London GAA vs Donegal in the Allianz National League at McGovern Park. A fast moving game with 15 on each side and a pitch 140×85 metres. The match ran close throughout the hour with Donegal finally coming out on top by 2 points.
Canary Wharf knows how to make the most of our dark winters nights and their own ‘public realm’ estate, 20 installations by some of the most innovative light artists across the globe with some new commissions alongside pieces never before seen in the UK before add an extra dimension to this place
London has been hosting a New Years Day Parade (LNYDP) since 1987, and every year since until January 2021, when it was cancelled due to COVID. LNYDP attracts over 10,000 participants from the USA, UK, Europe and beyond and a street audience of close to half a million.
For me this is my first visit for some time and great to see so many people happy to be on the streets celebrating the festivities.
