They are both reputable sellers of authentic hand signed memorabilia and work with some of the biggest sporting name including Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Surez and many many more. As well as attending their signings session with them to photograph the sporting stars I also shoot their signed products.

I love photographing products and making something look its best for a customer to then purchase from the companies website.

Eric Cantona, A1 Sporting Memorabilia & Matt Hardy Photography

I was off to meet a legend and I mean LEGEND.

Another drive up to Heathrow which is soon becoming a 2nd home for me for a flight out to Lisbon. This would be my first time in Portugal and I can certainly tell you its GORGEOUS. I was heading out with A1 Sporting Memorabilia who as you know by now work with some incredible people.

It was time for me to photograph Eric Cantona, who if you don’t who he is, well then I suggest that you look him up. Long retired from the sport that he still adores he is still a huge influnce in the game and loved by millions of footballing fans across the globe.

I won’t bore you with how nice the hotel was or how hot is was because I’m not that kinda guy, But it was stunning and boiling ;)!

So the big man arrived, After knowing what he was like on the pitch (sometimes he got a bit lively) I was eager to meet him. A warm smile and handshake the man has changed but in a positive way, More relaxed and humble and also sporting a fantastic beard to which I soon regretted getting rid of mine.

We got underway with the job in hand and then it was time for a photo with the king (he was dubbed this in his career days)

I knew it had to be a good one as I might not meet the man again so I pulled out my best smile and…. well I will let you make up your own mind image below.

All I can say is that it was truly incredible to meet him and he gained even more respect from me after he departed such a humble and nice man.

Thanks Eric

Gareth Bale Icons Memorabilia & Matt Hardy Photography

So it was time to jet off again,

This time to sunny Madrid for my first visit to the city. I was teaming with Icons.com who as you know work with best footballers in the world. It would be my first time photographing Gareth Bale but the fellas from icons assured me it would be a good one.

We landed into Madrid at 10pm and headed straight to the hotel knowing tomorrow was going to be a busy day. A nice lye in and breakfast before go time and for the soon arrival of Gareth.

Gareth arrived and we got underway after a few handshakes and talk about what hes been up to. I can certainly say Gareth is proud to be Welsh and also has a huge love of golf!

With the work done it was time to get a photo with the man himself before he shortly departed.

Kawasaki 2016 ZX10R And JoJo

Joanna (JOJO) contacted me as Kawasaki Bournemouth had loaned her their newest bike to test and review. So of course she need some images for the review and that’s where I come in. Luckily the sun was out for a gorgeous shoot with this stunning bike. I am not a huge fan of motorbikes but this one certainly caught my eye.

Photographing Luis Suarez At Barcelona’s Training Ground

Luis Suarez In Barcelona,

.

Having met with Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta on Friday and Sunday respectively, myself  and the Icons tea, rounded off a fantastic weekend of signings by spending Monday morning with fellow FC Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez at the club’s training ground, La Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.

We arrived shortly before the players’ first session of the day and were greeted by flashing cameras as eager fans tried to snap a photo of their heroes going to work.

Setting ourselves up in a private room within the impressive facilities, Icons eagerly awaited an in-formLuis, who arrived ten minutes later, wearing Barca’s blue and yellow training kit and a cheeky smile on his face.

We only had around 30 minutes and the FCB superstar had a busy day of training ahead so we got down to business.

What a way to round up an incredible few days in Barcelona.

Barcelona V Real Sociedad

Barcelona continued,

Well what a weekend so far!

After working with Lionel Messi the previous day, he handed us tickets to watch the next Barcelona game.

This would be my first ever game at Camp Nou and yes I was a tad excited.

We met with Messi’s brother, who greeted us at the entrance to the stadium. Arriving at our pitch-side seats, we definitely had one of the best views in the stadium!

The game was immense and nothing like I have ever seen before. The talent and class of Spanish football is on another level.

Below are a small selection of images that I took for myself and Icons Memorabilia.

And here is a link to their site where you can purchase signed memorabilia.
