This is one of my favourite pictures of A P McCoy taken on the gallops at Jackdaws Castle. I was in a car with a film crew driven by Jonjo O’Neill.

I have covered Gloucester Rugby for over 16 years in the rain, snow, sleet, and sun. The Shed are world famous for their passion and to be honest I prefer it from football.

World Cup Winner Phil Vickery

A major rugby club has its stars and Phil Vickery is a legend in Gloucester’s rugby history. Many stories come out of a club besides the action and this was one. I was sent to photograph Phil with his new daughter. I knew an intimate skin on skin picture is what I needed, so when I got there I found myself asking this massive front row forward to take his clothes off. He obliged and I was unhurt!

It was almost compulsory to photograph Mike Tindall playing for Gloucester because he is a World Cup winner and he is married to Zara, grand daughter to the Queen.

I’ve always covered Gatcombe and have photographed royalty, celebrities, the cross country and dressage at the event. On this particular occasion I had just got this image when I turned around to find the Princess Royal also at the jump entertaining Sir Roger Moore. Action, royalty and major celebrity all in ten minutes, RESULT!
