Favourite Football Kits Ever # 7 Ajax Amsterdam 1987

If you follow this blog (you probably don't), then you'll note that this image is not up there with the usual photo-journalistic standard that I set for my historical football posts. Stay with me...

This particular shot features one of my all time favourite players, whose name has particular relevance to the bouquet he is carrying in tandem with the 1987 ECWC trophy. Arnold Johannes Hyacinthus Mühren (on the right - with the flowers), in my opinion, has the best left foot of all time. OF ALL TIME. Though saying this, the best goal he ever scored for Ipswich Town was in an FA Cup 6th Rd replay in 1981 (against Nottingham Forest) with his right peg (previously only ever used for standing on). The very young Matt Brooke Studio almost fell off the drainpipe he was holding onto in the capacity crowd when said event happened. All seater stadiums? Allocated seats? Pre-booking? What's that all about?

Football Picture or Fashion Shoot?

You decide. 

Football kits Saint Etienne etc. blah blah

Ok, this is getting a little repetitive. What it is it about this once mighty French football team that so inspired a generation of sports photographers?

JohnnieB Winter 2011 Film

A little video Gemma and I shot and I edited for your delight. Lovely colour work and general finessing by Dionne Loftus. This is a Northern People's Film Production. Enjoy. If you'd like to watch in higher res... check out the website.

JohnnieB Winter 2011

Here are a selection of images for the new season Johnnie B winter 2011. All shot up the road in Aldeburgh. A cracking few days was had by all, in particularly wintry conditions (considering it was July). All shot by Gemma Booth, my old mucker from The Face and Arena days way back when. As for all this nonsense about the youth of today, I can only say this young bunch were a joy to hang out with. We've just finished the Spring shoot and I will post that in the new year.

Daks AW11 Far East Campaign

Another sneaky campaign I did for Daks recently, specifically for the Far East. Shot by David Slijper and featuring Alana Zimmer and Matthias Bergh. These will be running as billboards in major Asian airports this autumn, so if anyone sees them send us a snap!

My Positano Pirate Crew

Cap'n Brooke all shipshape and Bristol fashion here, just back from one of our favourite locations - Positano, on the Amalfi coast. An amazing spot teamed with with a fantastic crew and a phenomenal set of images for the new Boden Men's Spring 12 collection. Can't wait to get these up online in the new year. All hands on deck for admiral Lane, young wrens Smart and Lewis, able seamen Lamb and Raine, the old viking shiphands Haggren and Larsen, the pirates Guido and Davide and the stowaways Kulkov, Keyser and Noel. Land ahoy!!!
