How to fit a football pitch into a baseball field and other observations from last nights Liverpool FC V Manchester City match at Yankee Stadium.
An excited crowd of 49,456 enjoyed a most entertaining press season game complete with penalty shoot out to decide the result and $12 beers…
More from Jack Antonoff shoot for Billboard. This time Jack gets all snugly with his jumper…
Musician Jack Antonoff of the band Fun and now Bleachers in his childhood bedroom at his parents house in New Jersey for Billboard mag.
And yes it really looks like that. No additional propping required…
In observance of todays USA V Belgium World Cup match the offices of Andrew Hetherington Photography LLC will be closed for the duration. Here’s hoping it doesn’t get decided by a penalty kick although a result is a result no matter how you get it, providing your team wins of course . Ole ole ole ole….
To whom it may concern Andrew Hetherington Photography LLC will be taking a break in our normally scheduled work day for the next couple of hours in observance of USA v Germany. Ole Ole Ole Ole!!!!!
It might be full on summer but it was f**kin’ frigid back in December when I traveled to Vermont to photograph Spartan Race founder and ultra athlete Joe De Sena.
The feature for the July issue of Outside is online here now. Well worth a read as Joe is either one of the craziest mothers you well ever meet or is one of the most charismatic and inspirational. Add button pusher and workout fiend to the mix and you start to get the picture that he is a little bit of all the above and so much more.
With an appetite for 300 burpees at 5 am every day no matter what the conditions or the location De Sena is with out a doubt one of the most driven and intriguing people I have ever spent time with.
Not averse to a photographic challenge myself Joe certainly kept me on my toes; pushing hard physically and photographically. Everyone gets dished the same treatment in De Sena world which is head quartered in and around the picturesque village of Pittsfield. And while its not everyones cup of tea it can be transformative and life altering if you are literally willing to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.
Big thanks to Amy and Hannah at Outside for the snow filled adventure…
To whom it may concern the offices of Andrew Hetherington Photography LLC will be closed this afternoon in observance of England V Uruguay….
With the day thats in it, time to revisit an oldie but goodie football project. They liked to play hard, steak & chips, shagging, their mot’s, bollox, walking dogs, getting lamped, hoovering, strip clubs, their wage packets and so so much more. Reintroducing Dublins finest, Newtown Park Celtic FC circa 2003….
Andrew Hetherington Photography LLC will be closing the office early today. Ole Ole Ole Ole Ole….
Excited to make my debut appearance for 8 BY 8 magazine at the New York Redbull’s home opener a couple of months back. The pics were for a feature entitled ‘America’s Football Factory… And The Pint-Sized Rebellion’.
The magazine is a must must read for anyone interested in football/soccer. Not only is it chock a block with fab articles, its also packed full of some brilliant illustrations and photo’s. It rightly bills itself as ‘The Magazine The Beautiful Game Deserves’ as the treatment and attention to detail on all area’s of the pitch are exquisite.
Oh and in case you were wondering the name 8 by 8 is all about. Its the dimensions of a goal, 8 feet high by 8 yards wide. So there you have it now.
Huge thanks to Priest & Grace, Cooper and the rest of the all-star team…
The PDN Photo Annual 2014 satellite site went live today and although I have known for a few weeks as to my inclusion in the Magazine/Editorial Category I was sworn to confidentiality.
Excited that my SS Kid Rock feature for GQ is now batting a 1000 in contests this season after pulling a result in PDN and AP 30 too. As always its a huge thrill to be included and to be featured amongst so many of my inspirators.
Unfortunately I won’t be in town for the Photo Annual Party on May 27 so feel free to have my share of the beverages and the cheese tray if you are going…
Here’s a look at some of the pics I took for The New York Times magazine as part of a feature on the world’s biggest chain of vegetarian restaurants, Saravana Bhavan. ‘Masala Dosa To Die For' is a must read, as its a fascinating story about the chain and its founder the elusive P. Rajagopal, who has got to be one of the most colorful restauranteur moguls you will ever come across. Mired in scandal but yet beloved by his employees, he was convicted of murder, but only served 11 months in prison.
The restaurant specializes in South Indian food, namely dosa, idli and vada. Rice and lentils are the basic ingredients but my oh my don’t let that turn you off. The cuisine is super tasty. All made fresh daily in each location by chefs who come from Chennai in India the home base for Saravana Bhavan. Great care is taken to replicate the quality and consistency of the food no matter what part of the world you par take it in.
I covered a lunch service at the Lexington Avenue outpost here in Manhattan. It’s delicious and nutritious. The space is no frills as is the speedy service, which is all designed to get you in and out. Don’t let the dower facade fool you either it’s well worth a visit I promise.
Big thanks to Gabrielle Plucknette and Kathy Ryan for the assignment…
Continuing to bang the ol’ self promo drum today here on WTJ? My personal favorite of all the photo contests American Photography has posted the Selected and Chosen images online from AP30. Excited to have four images make the book and to be among such illustrious company.
Save the date for the launch party November 6. Always a super super fun night…
Excited to be featured in ESPN the Magazine’s NFL Draft Issue with a portrait of cornerback Pierre Desir. Projected to be picked in the 2nd or 3rd round, you can read Pierre’s draft profile here.
First round of the 2014 Draft starts this Thursday May 8th. Wishing Pierre all the best.
Big thanks to Kaitlin Marron, Karen Frank and the entire ESPN team…
Finally getting around to catching up on the ol’ social media after my travels.
Super excited to see my snap of Liverpool FC and Boston Red Sox owner John Henry grace the cover of this weeks Bloomberg Business Week (read story here). At the time of finding out about this I found out that Liverpool were beaten by Chelsea to put a dent in both out Premier League title dreams. Here’s hoping a mighty result against Crystal Palace this afternoon will put the pressure back on Man City.
The photographs were taken at Mr Henrys palatial Boca Raton house the day after the jarring Hillsborough documentary aired on ESPN so as you can imagine all shoot chit chat revolved around football and our beloved Liverpool FC. Was also thrilled to see John had my favorite photo/sports book of all time ‘European Fields' by Hans van der Meer on his coffee table.
Big thanks to Emily Keegin, David Carthas and the BBW crew…
