Hi John, thank you for the encouraging words I'm soo happy!!. It's been a long time comming but fingers crossed I'm now shooting pro soccer a lot more. The downside being I can't publish pics of pro Soccer due to league restrictions so I'm affraid I can mostly only state about pics used, & publish local soccer shot only. Kind regards Graham.

Great news Graham, makes all that effort worthwhile. I'll have to keep an eye on the papers for more. Steve

Graham, great shot and really pleased you got the front page.

It also continues to show what a lot of us have found, the sort of shot that makes the paper is the reaction/celebration rather than the action of the game. Sure they use on the ball shots too but these are the winners.

Cheers swaagate, was over your area last month!
Simon, yes i had pitch side access
Hello Mark!,As you say I've found that celeb pics are the money pics & (sadly) any old action will do inside. I had 3 great, (in my eyes), action pics cut to just "stock" style head & shoulders pics of the involved players LOL. I'm not bothered if they keep using any of them Kind regards Graham.
