One of the UK’s top sports photographers will be sharing some of his secrets and his stories in a Hitchin Camera Club special event next week.
Marc Aspland, the chief sports photographer with The Times, has been made an honorary fellow of the Royal Photographic Society on the strength of the stunning images he has captured over many years.
