I love this shot of Joel Fiegert of the Perth Demons. Taken during the double header at Steel Blue oval on August 21st 2010 vs Swan Districts. This lonely shot of Joel i think summarises the long, hard season for the wooden spoon Perth Demons Football Club during another heavy loss.
On the eve of the finals a few photos of the Double Header from August 21st at Steel Blue oval, Bassendeen. Claremont Tigers Vs West Perth Falcons and Swan Districts Vs Perth Demons. Claremont pulled away in the second half for an easy win while Swan Districts were always in control vs Perth.
This weekend sees my beloved East Fremantle Sharks return to the finals to face the in form East Perth Royals while Claremont face Swan Districts for the right to advance to the WAFL grand final.
I love taking the camera into the middle of the WAFL quarter time and three quarter time breaks. Its something you don't get the opportunity to do at many sports and is a great way to capture the intensity and passion of the game through portrait style photos. When taking sports photography i always try to capture the event or game from different perspectives to offer something different from the standard freeze frame of a fast moving object or player.
