Euro 2012: Spain v Italy

Since he is as Spanish as a Japanese can be, today was an important day for Mutsu.  Begun the title defence Spain has.

“Day 4 of the tournament.  I’ve been waiting for this match. As strange as this may sound, listening to the conversations in the media centre in Spanish calms me down.  I also was able to concentrate on the shoot.  The weather which I was concerned about since yesterday held up well during the course of the match.

Buffon was very excited when Italy took the lead in the 2nd half.  As a photographer, having a player like him who openly expresses emotions is a blessing.  His reaction allowed me to forget for a moment that Spain was losing.  Soon after Silva’s assist led to the equaliser.  1-1, I’m sure both teams were happy they didn’t lose tonight.”

  1. Its very nice to have some sort of “live” feedback from a photographer during this event.Thanks for sharing this.

    1. It’s as “live” as we can make it and I think it’s important to know what goes through a photographer’s mind during a long shoot like the Euro. :)
