It was hectic but I really enjoyed it. Over 2000 photos were available in the end so that everyone had a few photos to pick from!
It has been cool to see them pop up here an there over social media as people explain their specific roles on the show. Someone took my photo with it as well but I only had a small hand in helping on this particular show and wasn’t directly involved (you may have seen some making of interviews recently which I did, we also took some of the lighters on a physical lighting workshop to help their lighting development!).

It’s been a while. So forgive me. Por favor. And this is a long one so I suggest you make some tea or coffee before digging in.
I thought I would talk about my experience as a professional freelance photographer shooting the World Cup. Not the ones who work for an agency or a newspaper. Basically, a backpacker’s guide to shooting the World Cup. Beleza.
First of all, I was there to shoot as many matches as possible. I estimated 21 and fell 1 short and ended up with 20. Why? I got killed by the fog in Curitiba which grounded my plane until the match in Belo Horizonte started.
