What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?

My favourite Copa90 video has to be the Partizan vs Red Star Derby Day video. The footage from the match shows such a contrast to English derbies, despite the same emotions running deep for all fans involved in the game. Watching all the flares just makes me wanna go and shoot it!

 

What inspired you to take up football photography?

I’ve always been into photography, and i’ve always been a huge football fan, so football photography seemed the natural route to take. Seeing photographs after each game, especially the celebration pics just left me wanting to be pitch side, and now i finally have the chance to be and i’m loving it!

What’s your earliest football memory?

My earliest football memory is from my first game; Bolton vs Arsenal when I was about 4 years old. I was too young to remember most of it, but I can still picture figures in red running around the pitch. I’ve been hooked ever since!

Who is your footballing idol?

As an Arsenal fan it would be easy to say Thierry or Bergkamp, but i’m going to go with the slightly less obvious choice in Lukas Podolski. A fan favourite, with a bullet of a shot and a player who’s always willing to take digs at Tottenham. The man is a hero.
