Lawrence Dallaglio and a visit to Twickenham

On Monday morning I was asked if I was free to do a shoot with England Rugby Legend Lawrence Dallaglio at Twickenham. Daft question, of course I was!

Often these photo shoots are short notice and you have to drop everything to go and do them. So I rang Kim (Trusted assistant) to see if she was available, and thankfully she was, and I sussed out what and how I wanted to shoot Lawrence for this ‘History of Rugby’ book cover and got my gear together.

Now its alright having all the studio lights in the world for the shoot, but in my case and most of the shoots I do, you dont quite know what kind of space that you will be given at the venue.

So we set off at 6.00 am myself, Kim and Chris Brereton (Amazing journalist) from Stoke to get to Twickenham for 10.00am, which we did really easy arriving at 9.00am!!

Our contact at Twickenham Jane Barron looked after us really well and we were given a corporate box with plenty of room over looking the pitch in the ground. Not too much head height, so that scrapped one idea I had, but we went for the other idea I had, lighting wise.

The one thing that struck me was the amazing view of the pitch/ground of Twickenham we had from this box we were given. So I really wanted to photograph Lawrence on the balcony over the pitch/ground we were given, which I did.

Lawrence arrived and was the perfect gentleman. Open to any idea so we opted for the shoot on the balcony first with him. Difficult to expose if Im truthful. The shade of the balcony over the pitch, and then the over exposure in the middle of the stadium made it a tricky exposure…….. We did the shoot and Lawrence went for his video interview.

I suppose been a football fan, well Liverpool FC, fan to be exact  yes I knew who Dallaglio was but if Im truthful not quite how good that England side were. Listening to him speak, jeez they were a bloody great side to not only wipe of the best ‘Southern hemisphere teams’ team the years before but to win the ‘World Cup’ in Rugby in Australia’s own back yard was amazing.

Lawrence Dallaglio was open to any ideas and great to be around…….. Loved the shot, loved the results!!!
