England Rugby Training - RBS Six Nations 2012

90% of my work is as a wedding photographer, but from time to time - more so in the off season - I shoot bits and pieces in other fields. I enjoy the variety and the challenge, it helps keeps me sharp and stops me getting into a rut. I shoot some stock images for an agency called Pixstel. Pixstel is largely an aviation and maritime library, but we’ve been looking to widen our scope for a while and I’ve been adding sport images, specifically rugby, over the last year or so.

This morning I was over at Surrey Sports Park. Normally I’m there to get beaten on the squash court, but today I was out in the seriously cold (-3° before windchill) morning sunshine photographing the England Rugby team during a pre-match training session ahead of their opening Six Nations fixture against Scotland. I’ve shot England training sessions for the last few years, but this squad was completely new look. New head coach, new captain, three test-cap debuts for Saturday, a load of players new to the England elite setup and a venue I’d previously not shot at. It was certainly interesting. You can’t accuse Stuart Lancaster (the new head coach) of stagnation!

Anyway, if you’re interested, head on over to Pixstel where you can find a selection of my images from the 20min session:
