Four Four Two Magazine Nike

Double front cover photoshoot of Spanish football striker Fernando Torres (Athletico MadridLiverpool FC, Chelsea, AC Milan) and English football striker Wayne Rooney (EvertonManchester United FC, D.C. United) for monthly football magazine FourFourTwo. Published by Future.

The Fernando Torres photoshoot took place in a hotel room in Manchester, close to a TV ad they were filiming. So there wasn’t much height for jumping around. Fernando nailed this pose in the first shot by the way.

The Wayne Rooney shoot took place a week or two later in The Pie Factory film studio, so we had loads of space for that one. Amazing, amazing players and both front covers were released for the same month. Boom.

All lighting and equipment for both shoots I hired from PKE Lighting. They have, everything and deliver everywhere.

See the Rugby World front cover photoshoots as well. Similarly shot in small spaces.
