Real Madrid

I photographed Real Madrid's pre-season training in Carton House, Co. Kildare, for Platinum One Group. This was a great experience, as I am a big soccer fan, and to see players like Raúl, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema play and train every day was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I was pretty nervous when I had to set up and shoot a team photo- knowing that these players were worth 350 million euros- but it went well and even got most of them to smile. My favourite photographs however are the ones taken of Heinze and Pepe, when they found a Ronaldo pin-up calendar which a fan had for Ronaldo to sign.
