The Official Launch of Super League XXIV took place at Old Trafford on Thursday, as all 12 teams were in attendance to mark the start of the new campaign which gets underway in a week’s time as Wigan travel to St Helens.

And I was the official Sports, Commercial and Studio Photographer for all of the players that attended the event at Old Trafford in Manchester.

I used four Elinchrom lights and a backdrop and used coloured gels to give the dramatic red and blue which is the main colour of official sponsor BetFRed the massive betting company based in Salford

Super League Chief Executive, Robert Elstone, opened proceedings by welcoming Club representatives and the media, as well as talking about the new changes for 2019, enforced by the hashtag #NewBeginnings.

Sky Sports’ Brian Carney hosted the Launch as Wigan Captain, Sean O’Loughlin, was invited to the stage to chat with former Warrior; now Catalans Dragons player, Sam Tomkins, and new Warrington Wolves signing Blake Austin.

Head Coach Adrian Lam, as well as Castleford Tigers’ Darrell Powell and Leeds Rhinos’ David Furner were then called to talk about the new season.

Wigan Hall of Famer and record three-time Man of Steel, Ellery Hanley MBE, then took to the front as he was announced as the chair of the Steve Prescott Man of Steel committee for 2019.

The event concluded with the reveal of the Official Super League Launch video, which features Wigan’s Morgan Escaré and Dom Manfredi.

Paul pays close attention to the finer details in all his photography and prides himself on how he looks after his customers for a truly personal photographic experience.

Every photoshoot is a new and exciting project and the utmost of care and creativity is ingrained in Paul’s work.

There are many aspects to consider for a good photo-shoot, but ensuring you get the right shots for your chosen output such as print, web, large format or something else, it isn’t just about the day of the shoot. With every client, Paul invests time into pre-shoot planning and preparation, and extensive editing and formatting once the shoot is done.
