Those that know me, will know that I am a huge rugby fan (being from Wales and all that). As an ex-player myself, I’ve been waiting for an opportunity and a break in my wedding shoots to shoot some rugby. This weekend, Newport RFC granted me a press accreditation to go pitchside and photograph their Principality Premiership game against local rivals Cross Keys.
I loved every minute of it, and will be looking to do more sports photography, especially when the new studio opens throughout the year.
These are some of the favourites from the match, which Newport won 24-10. They have been edited in the style I like. I love my images to resemble those of the old film cameras, and as such nearly all of my images are edited to resemble this look. To me, it gives an image depth and character, that a simple un-edited digital image does not achieve.
For the photographers out there. Every shot was exposed using a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV with a EF 70-200 2.8 IS L (Mark I) Lens.
