This was a tough assignment, but someone had to do it……….
This job in Glasgow was particularly fun – the hardest part was turning down squads of aspiring female photographic assistants ………I felt a bit selfish. I hadn’t been able to resist bragging a bit (to girls) about the tempting brief I was sent: Photograph a rugby team creatively………..
The client was O2, and they were needing creative photographs from a variety of deserving community projects for sponsorship. No pressure obviously, but I so hoped my photographs would win Jordanhill Phoenix Rugby Football Club the cash.
I turned up for work two hours early as usual, and then watched time slip away as the players arrived in their own good time and wouldn’t be nagged into hurrying up a wee bit……. They were focused on winning their next match – and could only spare a few minutes for photography before they had to get down to business. Their loss, and mine!!
