Why shoot cricket? Do you offer any other sports?

Cricket is a unique sport in that it goes on fro a long time providing plenty of time to shoot whilst the sportsmen and women run, jump, hit, throw, catch and dive all of which provide wide scope for shooting. The skills you learn are transferable to any sport and in our experience cricket provides the perfect place to learn.

If you are looking to become a sports photographer then this photography course is ideal for you and will provide the perfect starting point in this rewarding industry. For amateur photographers, hobbyists or parents of children playing sport then this is the opportunity to catch those stunning images that prove so elusive.
