Apart from the Winter Olympics, the pinnacle of the skiing calendar is the biennial world ski championships. In 2017, St Moritz is the host city, having done it four times before. I’ve shot ski racing before and this was going to be a treat. After two weeks below is a sample. More here.

Some highlights from a friendly between Australian Soccerroos and Greece. More here and apimages.com

Finally got to shoot a match with the Australian Matildas soccer team. This was a friendly against New Zealand in the lead up to the Rio Olympic Games. Covered 2 matches when the team was in Melbourne. More photos here, and at apimages.com

At what is probably the first international event where Nikon’s NPS and Canon’s CPS had the new flagship cameras available I couldn’t resist to take them both out for a spin. Readers may remember that I switched from Nikon to Canon about 3 years ago when I was let down by the Canon 1D Mk3’s autofocus […]

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 […]

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.

Here’s a selection of my published images from the 2014 Australian Open. You can scroll through them here.

Selected photos from the match. More at zumapress.com

Here are some photos from the second week.

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.
