    Hi
    I'd like to take this opportunity tointroduce myself -I am a proffesional photographer, that is I get paid for p[roducing images and I carry accreditations that get me into events and places where once I couldn't go. I am based in the UK and shoot sports mainly rugby and speedway, aviation and theatre - I do have a love of industrial archetecture and have had commisions from American Energy and Power. I work through two agencies and enjoy what I do.
    Please feel free to visit my web site which contains a limited amout of my work and feel free to coment. I do like to exchange ideas and discuss the industry.
    Regards to you all

    Hi guys and thank you for your welcome -
    The agencies I provide work to are Alamy Images - they are good and I market my non sports & aviation through them - stock photography really when I have nothing better to do, My Aviation images go direct to mags and company's in the aviation business. I cover Farnborough and Paris as well a some of the more public orientated shows such as RIAT and Duxford. My Sports photography mainly Rugby League well that goes direct to Harlequins as I am their official photographer - it goes out via Total RL the rugby magazine group and of course both local and national newspapers - motor sports and othersporting events I may cover I use Allsport to syndicate unless there is a special request from a sponsor or organisation. Theatre work goes direct to the theatre company but I do use an agency for a small amount and it has got me work but no sales so it worked in reverse if you understand .

    Here is a sample of my work: :er:

    Speedway - The Holy Grail of Speedway - all 4 riders in the shot
    [​IMG]


    No one in aviation has not got a picture of this lady.
    Last flight ever by Concorde - you didn't get this shot without the most valuable piece of kit - a step ladder


    [​IMG]

    Of course not everything that flies needs a runway or engines

    [​IMG]


    Social potography can be a challenge

    Sometimes I get artistic

    [​IMG]


    Very artistic

    [​IMG]

    A scene for 'Anything Goes' difficult as there is no flash and the theatre lights arn't that good and the white balance is all over the place.

    [​IMG]

    Stopping action in Rugby is a whole lot easier - This broke the nose of Thomas Leuluai but he played on for the rest of the match - didn't even leave the field.

    [​IMG]

    Rubeano at the French Grand Prix about 4 years ago now - still a favorite of mine

    Hi! I really enjoy your site and your pics... but I don't really like the gallery setup. I think the background detracts from your photos. Check out simpleviewer (do a google search) ... I think you will be suprised by how easy it is to use!
