Tottenham Hotspur Supporter Pat Murphy at White Hart Lane

Tottenham Hotspur supporter Pat Murphy talks about his journey over to White Hart Lane to photograph Tottenham Hotspur v Shamrock Rovers in the UEFA Europa League Group A:

“As a life long Tottenham supporter it was a great experience to cover the game between Tottenham and Shamrock Rovers at White Hart Lane. I’ve been to the stadium on 3 previous occasions to watch games as a fan but this was my first time to be working down on pitch level. All photographers have certain events or places they would like to work at at some stage of their career and for me Tottenham at White Hart Lane was one of them.”

Equipment used by Pat: Nikon D3s and D3 camera bodies, 600mm and 70-200mm lenses.
