Over the summer I was appointed the official club photographer for Nantwich Town FC. I had previously done a portrait of Chairman Jon Gold and club manager Jimmy Quinn for my exhibition ‘People’ staged at the Lyceum Theatre. Mr Gold was so impressed with the portraits that he invited me to take up the position, which I was very happy to accept.
I now attend all the home fixtures to take action shots which are used on the club website and in the programme! I also have a full page advertisement in the matchday programme. As well as the action shots I have taken the full squad photograph, recently published in the Chronicle and all the player portraits.
There are many fundraising events held at the Weaver Stadium including after dinner speaking. I was privileged to be invited along to a recent event starring BBC football commentator John Motson OBE. I had a good chat with John and also did a monochrome portrait which was also included in the ‘People’ exhibition. Last night England and Arsenal legend Ray Parlour was at the Weaver! I was once again invited to attend and provide the event photography and produced a portrait of Ray.
Ray had some great stories to tell about his playing days and a great evening was had by all!
