Photographic Inspirations

Interview and chat with Jonathan Shaw

I had an appointment with Jonathan Shaw today about my symposium and also to ask him a few questions about his own work. This talk was very inspirational and I made a lot of notes. I thought about taking a dictaphone but I knew it would make the conversation less personal and I was not looking for quotes from Jonathan. I simply wanted to hear his opinion on my thoughts about sports photography. Things are now much clearer and I am so happy I had the chance to speak to him.

One of my favourite photographs of Jonathan Shaw’s is the Basketball Championship at Wembley Stadium that is on the cover of the Time|Motion book. I will defiantly talk about this image in my symposium.
