Kevin Quigley: My favourite image of the week… Johnnie Jackson and James Ward
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Sportsmail's top snappers Andy Hooper, Graham Chadwick and Kevin Quigley will be showcasing their favourite image of the week.
Here, Kevin chooses this stunning capture of James Ward and Johnnie Jackson as his standout selection…
This is from a recent shoot I did with British tennis player James Ward and Charlton captain Johnnie Jackson.
I met them close to where they lived as children in Euston, London. They grew up as friends, so I wanted to put that feel into the piece – as well as illustrating their respective sports.
Just around the corner from where we met, I noticed there was this gate to stop cars entering the estate, so I asked if they would like to play a game of head tennis in the street like they did when they were young.
I was expecting to take a couple of fake head shots for the cameras, so I was taken aback when they started going for it properly by chasing the ball around, wanting to get one over the other. It made a fun shoot.
This shot was taken using: Nikon D3s, Nikon 24-70, iso 1600
