The most uplifting sports event I’ve ever covered was the Homeless World Cup when it was held in Melbourne, 2008. You can read about the event here. The event was staffed by largely volunteers, including the photography team. I turned up to cover it as a freelance but after meeting the team led by Michael Brown […]

International basketball made a return to Melbourne after fifteen years. Rod Laver Arena hosted game one of the 2015 FIBA Oceania Championships between Australia and New Zealand with both the women’s and men’s team playing off. Here are some photos. More here.

The International Champions Cup brought these three European powerhouses down to the Melbourne Cricket Ground for 3 matches. Here are some of my photos from the event held during July 2015 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. More here.

After the French Open, I’m in Vancouver in June to cover the matches that are being played her at the BC Place Stadium. The teams playing in the Group stage are Japan, Cameroon, Ecuador, Switzerland, USA and Nigeria. Here are some highlights. More photos here.  

My travel plans had me in the Northern Hemisphere in late May and I covered the French Open. The clay surface, the late afternoon light, and the suburban location are the three unique characteristics of this event. The photography points on the major courts are also special. Court level, high up, in the stands, and also low […]

Canon Professional Services CPS had a pre-release Canon 5Ds at the French Open. I borrowed it late one day when it looked likely Tsonga was going to win an epic match on centre court. I wanted a loose shot with the crowd celebrating with Tsonga and CPS had a 100mm 2.8L lens that could do justice to […]

A few images from the competition. More images here.

Here are four samples of the 7D Mk II used at the 2015 Australian Open. In the right conditions, it’s very good.

A few images from the 2014 Test series between the Australian Wallabies and France in Australia. Australia def France 6-0 in the second test claiming the 3 test series.

This is my third Ironman event. Covering the swim at the start is easy, but getting the bike leg without having access to a motor bike is more difficult. at least this year I managed to get some photos at the turn around point. Full gallery here.

This is the sixth year I’ve shot a coffee-related competition. Each time it’s different because of the venue and the lighting. Today, it was the Australia latte art championship. The format is each competitor has to reproduce the design of three drinks they’ve photographed. The challenge is to get a shot of the competitor and […]

I’m covering the Open for Cal Sport again this year. Here’s a selection of photos from the first week of the 2014 Australian Open. Most of these were shot with the Canon 200-400mm, a terrific one-lens solution for sports, and some with the 600mm on a Canon 1D X body.

Here are some selected photos from the A-League and W-League in 2013. More to come in 2014.

As the professional season starts, the winter semi-pro season ends. Here are some photos of a tense women’s final where the winners kicked the winner in the 94th minute, 30 seconds before the final whistle. You can guess which team won.

The Australian professional soccer league – A-League – starts. Unfortunately the season in Melbourne started with a nil-all draw. But here are some pics that are more behind the scenes than peak action:

I don’t usually do Entertainment shoots but since this one is related to Formula 1 I shot this one today. Here are three images. The first photo is shot with Canon’s magical 85mm f1.2 – it’s got a very distinctive “look” when shot at fast apertures.

With pro-DSLR shooting more than 10 frames per second it’s always puzzled me that we don’t see more sequences. So here’s 3 from the past W-League soccer season. The pictures speak for themselves!
