Last month we covered Offside sports agency photographer Charlotte Wilson who set up a blog with fellow photographer Molly Darlington tracking thier trip photographing the Women’s World Cup in France. …now Charlotte is back in London, has caught up on some sleep, had a square meal and edited her images, PAN asked her for a selection of her best from the tournament.
Charlotte told PAN: “During my 31 days in France for the Women’s World Cup, I covered a total of 23 matches, photographed 21 different teams and visited 7 host cities. I shot the Women’s Euros in Holland two years ago, but this was my first World Cup and it was on a completely different level. It was exhausting, but a really great experience at the same time. Things seemed to click for me after the group stages and I’m really happy with some of the images I produced – I hope they show the grittier side of women’s football; the side that a lot of people don’t think it has.”
Charlotte and Molly would like to thank Canon ‘who lent us a lot of gear for the tournament.’
PAN asked Mark Leech, the Boss at Offside, to comment on Charlotte’s trip and coverage for the agency: “Hi Will, all I’d add to the piece about Charlotte is her ability to organise 90% of the trip by herself and not complain once to me about working conditions, late nights or extreme heat. Her photos speak for themselves.”
