I've been interested in sport since I was a kid, and have been photographing various sports teams for the past few years. When I'm, I try to capture an essence of the emotional relationship between the players. I'm exploring the friendships, the highs and lows of being part of a team, and what it means to be dedicated to your sport. I find the moments when someone scores or does something important fascinating, but I'm also interested in documenting the quieter moments when the team is training and the build up to a game. My current focus is a women's hockey team and through my images I hope to capture some of their passion for the sport they are playing. Their dedication means that they are regularly training and playing in all weathers. Even though focus is on teamwork, each player has an individual approach and experience at every game.
