Guatim Gambhir

Mainstream Sport??? What the???

A quick trip to Adelaide was on the agenda with a call to photograph Indian cricket Legend Guatim Gambhir, not my usual scene but I guess it falls under athlete portraiture and that I definitely do a lot of.

As for the actual shoot…Athlete running late, managers overseeing comings and goings, 35 degrees outside, an aged run down clubhouse inside, a very specific brief, a very ‘average’ location due to the need to get away from ‘cricket paparazzi’ and in the end I had to lend Guatim my socks…

What a weird day.

But I snuck in a sneaky ‘contemplative portrait’ all the same so ‘Happy Days’

Ya get the best ones when they aren’t looking 🙂

About inciteimages

A magazine recently profiled my life and pretty much hit the nail on the head: Australian adventure photographer (and occasional journalist) Mark Watson is a liar. He suggests his job is “not so glamorous,” but drop him an email and his ‘out of office auto response’ will inform he’s heli-skiing New Zealand or trekking Patagonia. In downtime he surfs and mountain bikes Sydney’s Northern Beaches or can be spied drinking café latte’s on the beachfront when he should be editing photos. He’s a Nikon Ambassador and Red Bull Australia’s No.1 photographer, and after a few Corona’s, admits, “I photograph cool people, in cool places, doing cool things!” Quickly followed by the disclaimer “It’s not always exciting…” But always said with a mischievous grin.
