I have been doing a little work recently for the North Queensland Fury ahead of their start to the 2010-2011 Hyundai A-League season. Great people to deal with and along with the Townsville Crocodiles that makes two out of three national sporting teams in Townsville that are good to deal with!
Thought I’d share some recent pics I’ve shot for trading cards and their team poster. Take note though, I had 20 minutes to shoot the 19 players for the trading card photos. You don’t get a lot of time to muck around in this gig
Had a bit of spare time to muck around today while shooting a football training session so I thought I’d hook my 5D MkII (with a 16-35) to my monopod with a magic arm to give you an idea of the field of view difference between a 16mm lens on a full frame camera compared to a 400mm lens on a 1.3x crop DSLR (equivalent to 520mm on a full frame camera).
It’s not that exciting but hopefully it’s better than a poke in the eye! Feel free to check it out in HD by hitting this link or watch the embedded video below.
As I’m a sports snapper I always keep the draw for the Cowboys, Crocodiles and the Fury handy so I don’t double book anything! The Fury 2010/2011 season draw has just been released so I’ve done up a Google Calendar for this and have made it public for anyone to utilize.

Photographed the North Queensland Fury‘s 2010 Awards night on Saturday and got a great meal tossed in. Ahhh, the spoils of shooting functions! Anyway, if you’re a Fury fan feel free to pop along to http://www.cameronlaird.com/nqfuryawards2010
Had an assignment for London’s Daily Mail a couple of weeks ago photographing former Brit football legend Robbie “God” Fowler. Fowler is playing for Australian A-League team North Queensland Fury FC as their marquee import and striker. Read Mike Dickson’s story here
