Optasia Squash Championships 2023

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.

Thanks to Danny Lee organiser of the championship https://www.psaworldtour.com/tournament/optasia-championships-2023/
and fellow photographer Andrew Moss for the initial introduction. https://andrewmoss.smugmug.com/browse

Haringey Huskies 2022

Quite a year for the Huskies who have strengthened their squad, come second in the league and gained a well earned place in the final of the Wilkinson Cup at the close of the season. They always make a exciting evening for the spectator, and now have sizeable and loyal following. Alexandra Palace remains their home and has been filled to capacity more than a few times this year. I am delighted again to be the Huskies ‘de facto’ photographer and I am happy to share images from the 2021-2022 season here

Haringey Huskies finish their 2020 season as Champions of the NIHL Div 2 South. Mostly shot at their home in Alexandra Palace they have a growing and loyal following. This year despite still shooting through a net expect to see more and more panning shots typically between 1/40 and 1/60th sec, enough to freeze a portion of the action though still convey the speed and dynamic of this tough and fast sport.

Privileged to roam the touchline its a wonderful opportunity to capture amateur rugby action and the players from all angles.
