”Alex has been fantastic in his role as photographer for us at Somerset CCC. He goes above and beyond his call of duty to provide the club and players with some of the best photos. His commitment to what he does is unparalleled and I think the quality of his work speaks for itself. It is no coincidence that many of his photographs appear in the sports pages! Aside from this, Alex is also a top guy and a pleasure to be around, and I think that I speak on behalf of the whole team in saying that it’s great having Alex at Somerset.” Tom Abell, Captain of Somerset County Cricket Club
“Alex has enjoyed an excellent relationship with Somerset County Cricket Club for a number of years. The demand for instant, high quality photos has become massive and Alex has been at the forefront in helping us provide this. His understanding of the technology required allows us to post incredible action photos on our website and social media channels within seconds which has helped us gain a favourable reputation with our fans. Alex has built excellent working relationships not only with the staff at SCCC, but the professional cricketers as well. Most importantly, his photos are of a very high standard and have been used across several of our marketing campaigns.” Ben Warren, Somerset County Cricket Club
