Jon Wagstaff is a freelance photographer based in Essex, his passion lies in Sports Photography concentrating on Rugby, Football and Cricket, but enjoys photographing other sports and is now entering into other areas of photography.
His photographs are taken in a journalistic way, using natural light where possible and he looks to capture the right moment, from joy and jubilation, to disappointment and frustration – it’s all in the game!
For over 15 years now, Jon has been the Official Club Photographer for Southend Rugby Football Club, who have played in the National Leagues. Many of his images have appeared in the local Echo Newspaper, as well as The Rugby Paper, the RFU Handbook, The Daily Telegraph Online and BBC Essex.
Jon also has a keen involvement in other Essex based clubs such as Southend on Sea E.M.T.Cricket Club, Hadleigh and Thundersley Cricket Club, The Gents of Essex C.C, Essex C.C.C. and The MCC.
