If there is one thing I have learnt about doing editorial photography, is the importance of photos being used much later than the day you took it.

A good example is when Chris Robshaw, captain of Harlequins Rugby Union, was named England’s new skipper for the 6 Nations Tournament for at least two of their matches. I quickly realised that I had photos in my archives that I could use as file images.

This image and those in the gallery access were taken during World Travel Market at the ExCel Centre, London on 7 November 2011. The players happened to visit their sponsors stand, Etihad Airways and were happy enough to do an impromptu photo call.
