Balfour Beatty asked us to photograph the British men’s beach volleyball team Gregory/Sheaf at their training session in Bournemouth and Poole this week. The shoot was scheduled to start early at Sandbanks beach to catch the low sun and blue skies. Sadly the British weather wasn’t as reliable as the players themselves and the sun and blue skies failed to turn up. That said, we got some good action shots on the beach before heading to the Oakdene LeAF Elite Sports Academy for a training session and match against the German national side. We set up a portable studio in one corner of the indoor training area to capture the guys as they came off court.
The pictures look fantastic, really pleased with them. That kind of high contrast, giving it an edgy look is just what I had in mind so I’m really pleased to see them looking so good.
