Ross Barkley For Proper Magazine

Well I haven't posted for quite a while. But seen as though the Euros in France are on I thought I'd post a something I did for Proper Magazine and Nike. I shot some portraits of England and Everton midfielder Ross Barkley at the impressive Camp and Furnes in Liverpool. This was one of Nike's England kit launch, I had about 15 minutes with Ross which isn't very long, so I spent most of the afternoon setting up the lights and making sure everything was ready for the player.

Whilst shooting Ross I asked him about the Euros and he couldn't wait to get going with the tournament. I also said to him that it was funny that a Welsh, Liverpool supporting photographer was photographing him. I don't think he got that! 

Here's a couple of pics of the day
