The Waratahs are extremely proud to announce Ian Bird Photography will once again be capturing all of the important moments for the Waratahs during 2018/19 as he signs on as a Club Sponsor for the season.
Whether it is 5th grade doing there thing at Mike Pawley Oval, 1st Grade in a titanic T20 struggle at Manly Oval, or our Brewer and Green Shield teams looking for underage supremacy, ‘Birdy’ is always there to record the big moments in the Waratahs recent history.
Ian Bird is not only a huge part of our club, but is one of the most skilled photographers in Australia.
Having grown up with his Dad working in the Film Industry, ‘Birdy’ always had a fascination with cameras from a very young age, and at the age of 19 he was offered a full-time job assisting one of Australia’s most respected photographers.
At that point in time Ian had no experience in the photography world and took this opportunity with both hands. In the next five years he gained a wealth of experience and knowledge about not only the art of taking photos, but how to run a successful business.
In March 2009, Ian decided to create his own business and moved into the freelance world. Since then, he has become an accomplished photographer having worked with clients such as Cunard, Cricket Australia, Sydney Airport, Destination NSW, Sydney Opera House, Bridgeclimb, as well as supplying images to one of the worlds leading photographic press agencies on a regular basis, Rex Features UK.
We are very lucky to have his talent and support as part of our club for a number of years now. The amount of hours that he spends behind the camera and computer to make sure the best photo’s are always used is a true testament to his passion for the club and skill in his profession.
Ian Bird Photography is your perfect destination for any photographic needs, whether they be for commercial, sporting, artistic or personal use.
We want to thank Ian Bird for his ongoing support of the Waratahs and can’t wait to see some of the action he captures during the upcoming season!
