The First Goal – Colin McPherson, 2007
Photographer since 1988, EPUK member since 2005

I work for When Saturday Comes, which allows me to indulge my passion for football with taking off-beat, behind-the-scenes images at matches at every level from internationals and Premiership, to village games and community initiatives. Last June, I was lucky enough to be sent to the Faroe islands for their match against Scotland and was rewarded with a sporting occasion set against a spectacular background. And I even captured one of the the Tartan Army’s most famous fans, the Man in the Red Suit, celebrating the first goal.

Colin McPherson works as a freelance photojournalist and is based in Liverpool. His work appears regularly in newspapers and magazines in this country in abroad. He also pursues a number of long-term projects which have been widely published and exhibited. He is a contributing editorial photographer with Corbis.

What is EPUK?

EPUK is an email group for professional editorial photographers who want to talk business. We don’t do techie stuff or in-crowd gossip. We don’t talk cameras or computers. What we talk about are the nuts and bolts of being in business - like copyright, licensing, fees and insurance.
