I shot the new campaign with the elite of rugby’s European players for BT Sport to promote the stunning new European Rugby Champion’s Cup, the successor to the Heineken Cup.
Taking in the landmarks of The Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral and The Eiffel Tower we produced these stunning images.
Seen here are Manu Tuilagi of Leicester Tigers, Tommy Bowe of Ulster Rugby, and Sam Warburton of Cardiff Blues.
