Last year I heard from Gullivers Sports Travel, the UK’s leading (and longest established) sports tourism operator. For those unfamiliar with Gullivers, the company has mastered the art of running supporters trips to major sporting events worldwide. Over the years Gullivers has built a solid reputation, upheld by their personal service and full understanding of the needs of those who travel across the globe to watch sports live. Considering this, Gullivers wasn't going to miss the opportunity to host a tour to Tokyo, Japan for the 2019 Rugby World Cup (RWC).
Sadly, I wasn't on hand to photograph any of the RWC tests. I was, however, delighted to be commissioned by Gullivers shoot event photography for their Tokyo-based RWC forums. The RWC forums were a chance for guests to meet and hear insights from some of the Rugby world's most recognizable names. Referee Wayne Barnes was on hand to give his overarching insight into the tournament. Moreover, there was a panel discussion with Mike Tindall, former rugby beast and current member of the British Royal Family.
I was honored to shoot the events and to hear some insight into the world of sport. I was also happy to collaborate with the kind folks from Gullivers and the loyal rugby supporters who came from Europe to take part in the fandom surrounding the 2019 Rugby World Cup here in Japan.
