    WiFi - 4G Stadium signals

    I've only ever used wifi at grounds in the past months but do have the option of 4G dongle and 4G on phone as a backup

    What sport would you most like to photograph??

    Boxing for me everyday or the week. No doubt is the same, no one knows that will happen next and the next punch could be the last one. Always have to be on your toes I've been fortunate enough to cover some big fights and great fight nights and being so close to the action is something you...

    Back in the game...

    Felt little like that for the last 12-18 months with Premier League and Football League stuff. I've always put it down to the poor quality of the football I cover (At the time it was Sunderland and Newcastle in a relegation battle so not many home wins etc). Now its little better but not as...

    Media catering at St James' Park

    Food and drinks stopped last season but they must be back now. I've always eaten before I go so can't comment on how good or bad it is.

    iCap delivered at long last

    As it's a night game it's good to keep those bright lights off as well. Especially if you have a glossy screen on laptop

    Super Telephoto lens buying help 'Football & Rugby'

    I know many people use primes and most stick to 300/400mm but I've gone down the 200-400 F$ route (albeit a Nikon) and think its fantastic. huge improvement over the 300mm I had previous. So much so that I hardly ever use or shoot with the 70-200 that now sits at my side just incase (I'm...

    The Football Thread - Season 2015/2016

    Its the biggest thing that could happen this summer. I don't really care at this stage who stays or goes as long as he stays. The one thing that surprised me to be honest as the season drew to a close was how well Sunderland did in all fairness. As well as Newcastle did to put themselves in...
