Matt talks about good and bad football games, and after 4.5 years finally qualified for his PRCA photographer’s card.  Ryu shot a disappointing England vs Poland match and some Champions League matches.

Master Class
Ryu and Matt talk about emotion, and the importance of capturing it and not confusing it with exertion.
