Photographing Lionel Messi For Icons.com

I always enjoy getting a phone call asking for my availability for a shoot. Especially when it’s in Barcelona and at the home of one of the worlds greatest football players Lionel Messi.

I was again working with my friends at Icons.com the home of worldwide authentic sports memorabilia.

The usual set up for me photographing the sporting star signing the items for their authenticity purposes and once they have been signed I take them to the studio to shoot the product images for the companies website and social media.

Icons have a longstanding partnership with Lionel Messi and are the only direct and trusted source to purchase his products from.

So it would be another hatrick for Barcelona’s Lionel Messi,

Yes he has 5 ballon d’ors, 3 golden boots and tons of other decorated accolades. However it was also to be another career highlight for him, Yep that’s correct its my 3rd time that I have photographed the international superstar.

Sporting a beard and new Haircut it was fantastic to see Leo again just before his festive break.

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.
