Testimonials

 

Alex has been a regular attendee at Chantry Bowmen of Rotherham’s tournaments (as a photographer, not an archer!). He spends hours watching the action from all possible vantage points to gain the best possible photographs. His attention to detail and determination to get the perfect shot do him credit. I’m sure that you will enjoy the photos on his website”

Alex has attended a number of Rotherham United games at New York Stadium and provides us with a number of high quality images each time. Focusing on what we require, the image itself as well as the resolution is always to a high standard, and we have been able to use these to help stock out library of images for use on the website and in the matchday programme, including two centre spreads.

Alex covered the photography at the start and finish of the Sheffield Half Marathon in 2012.

He took many shots of the runners in an innovative manner which we were able to use in our publications

His attention to detail and choice of background put a new perspective on an event which is widely photographed by both amateur and professional photographers.

I was so pleased to be able to get a copy of one of Alex’s shots of the New York Stadium.

I love the attention to detail and symmetry of the shot.

The picture I have shows the grandeur of our new stadium in contrast to the “Old” Rotherham townscape of the background.

Will always be a great reminder of our new stadium & town now I live in Cambridge!

I’m delighted to be the owner of a New York Stadium photo from Alex Roebuck.

The mixture of Stadium and Town centre backdrop is fantastic.

The lushness of the Green pitch and the clarity of the Red seats really stand out for me.

Framed and mounted on my living room wall, it is a real focal point for anybody entering the house.
