See Emily Play

Sometimes, when shooting candid photographs, a photographer and a subject may have just the briefest moment of contact which passes so fleetingly; but that quick glance at the camera is captured and preserved for all time.

In this photograph, I love the almost secretive eye contact between the dancer and the camera.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your email – much appreciated.

    I’m afraid that over the past few years, the Prem League and EFL regulations on photography have tightened up enormously. It has been made almost impossible for an aspiring snapper to shoot football, whether it be the First Team, U23s, or Women’s Team. The company that oversees this is – owned jointly by the PL, EFL and SFL.

    Occasionally, Park Cameras will organise a one-day photography experience for about 20 snappers – keep your eyes peeled for this!

    There are some clubs in the leagues below the PL/EFL who would like to have a regular photographer working for them.

    Good luck

    Hi Geoff ,
    my name is David Habgood , I’m 45 years old a canon shooter from storrington West Sussex and although I’m an avid Arsenal fan I always follow Brighton as my local team .
    I would just like to ask as I’m sure thousands of others do , what’s the chance of an aspiring sports photographer being given the opportunity to photograph a match at the Amex , be it a premiership , ladies , reserves or even at the training centre in Lancing ? . This for me would simply be a dream come true .
    Regards David Habgood .
