World Snooker Championships
I just thought I'd put up some of the shots from the World Snooker Championships. Although the first championship was held in 1927 It's been held in my home town of Sheffield since 1977 and I've been photographing it since 2000. I tend to concentrate on the players backstage before the matches start. This gives me very little actual shooting time but I think it reveals a little something about the tournament and it's players that is seldom seen by the public, besides there are plenty other photographers photographing the actual play. Anyway I thought I would add some of the work here as the Championship starts at the Crucible in Sheffield tomorrow.
