Sports Event Photographer For Hire

Updated: Apr 11, 2022

Grassroots plays 4G!

It's a warm sunny morning 9am Saturday 19th June and D&C Athletic football club are about to kick off against St Marys FC in a friendly football match.

Despite being a grassroots Sunday league team they got to play on Macclesfield Town FC's home ground in Cheshire which boasts a perfect 4G surface... ideal for D&C's tiki-taka playing style! Such a historic event had to be caught on camera.

If you need an event photographer for your own sporting occasion give me a call today!

Lots of fight from the D&C team, but sadly no win. Much fun had by all though and captured in photos, check out my sports event photography below.

From unique wedding videos through to football photography I love what I do! Why not learn about all of my creative services here.
