Editorial portrait commission at Twickenham Rugby Stadium in South West London. The second time I’ve been there in a fortnight for a portrait session. This time with Katy McLean for a Daily Telegraph exclusive interview. Katy McLean, English female rugby player, who was captain of England Women and captained them to victory against Canada in the 2014 France Rugby World Cup. In the last week she has been nominated for The BT Sport Action Woman 2017.
Interview for BT Sport Action Woman Awards 2017
The BT Sport Action Woman Awards celebrates the achievements of incredible and inspiring female athletes. The awards, now in their fifth year, celebrate the 10 most exceptional sporting performances by British female athletes throughout 2017.
After making our way through the corridors of the world’s most famous and iconic rugby stadium we headed onto the edge of the pitch. Here I found a great spot where it was easy to isolate the portrait space away from the bright light behind and any sponsorship hoarding in the background. Stopping down the light a couple of stops on several shots to create a more atmospheric setting.
