1/20

From 2014 - 2017 I worked for Canvey Island FC as their photographer. At that time they played in the Isthmian Premier League. I had a lot of fun in the three seasons I worked for them. They taught me a lot about professional conduct, and offered me an amazing introduction into the world of football photography. My first season with them started with an impressive FA Cup run, which ended in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup. Travelling away with the team to cover them offered me a great insight into the club and the players and helped me know what pictures to take. It ultimately was a difficult season for the club, and they went into the last day of the season needing to beat Wingate and Finchley in order to avoid relegation. They won 3-2 and it was one of the best games I have ever experienced, both as a football fan and as photographer. The following season, the club managed to arrange a pre season friendly against Premier League side West Ham United. Unfortunately, West Ham United couldn't put out a full strength side due to Europa League commitments. We won the game 2-0 in front of a sell-out crowd that provided an incredible atmosphere. That season the club finished in a mid table position.  Unfortunately, the club were relegated in my last season at the club where despite some great performances by the side,  they were ultimately not good enough and it became unavoidable that we would be relegated. In the 2018/19 season, I went back to the club for their promotion play-off final against Haringey Borough. It was great to go back to work for the club again despite the fact we lost 3-1. Most my images are available to purchase here. If you wish to purchase pictures for personal use and cannot find the player you are looking for, contact me and I will check the archive.
