Sports Photography Webinar with Clifton Cameras

A couple of weeks ago I recorded a webinar for Clifton Cameras on using the Fujifilm X Series for Sports Photography.  In the video I talk about how I started, the different genres of photography I shoot, how I travel with my camera gear and also how to take sports images with a 'wow' factor in motorsport, canoe slalom, water skiing, eventing, cricket and rugby.
