Galway United 2017 Home Kit - Photoshoot and Promotional Campaign

Teaser campains for new kits are always tricky afairs, alot of work goes into the design you really dont want to give away two much before the release. Myself and the club were very lucky to have access to the work of very talented Spiddal based photographer Seán Ó’Mainnín. Sean is the PR officer for the Galway Hooker Association, and his photos capture perfectly the spirit of the project. My sincere thanks to you for generous help.

Longstanding Galway United photographer Sean Ryan took the shoot and together with the help of players Colm Horgan, Vinny Faherty and Steven Folan as well as Peter Carpenter of Uhlsport/Teamsport we braved the elements for the love of the club! Below are some behind the scenes shots I took of the shoot.

Having access to the boats, and to the talented men who build them was an honour and made the shoot extremely memorable. Thank you again to the Peter Connolly and the Claddagh Boatmen, Sean Ryan our Photographer. Peter Carpenter for organising the visit and the players for
