This is a great chance to join me photographing some top level RFU Championship Rugby in front of thousands of fans at the Memorial Stadium in Bristol. Both matches promise a great contest with all the teams hoping to get their 2011 season off to a winning start. The day will begin with me taking you through all aspects of the day ahead over brunch at a local hotel. We will discuss your photographic background and experience and how to get the most out of your day.

On arrival at the Memorial Stadium you will receive you full match photo accreditation giving you pitch-side access to the game, alongside the Pros. I will be shooting with you, offering advice on all aspects of sports photography such a shooting techniques, seating positions and how to make the most of the light. Together we will choose your best shooting position and build towards improving all aspects of your sports photography. Rugby produces some fantastic sports pictures and this is your chance to get up close to some of the best action and as the current Sports Photographer Of The Year you will be working and learning with the best.

After the match we will do a full professional edit of your pictures (if you bring your laptop) and show you some advanced Photoshop techniques for improving your images. This photography day is strictly limited to eight photographers so that I can spend valuable time with everyone.
