We’re back for another spin at the Nitto ATP Finals inside London’s O2 Arena.

The ATP Finals is the second highest tier of annual men's tennis tournament after the four Grand Slam tournaments. A week-long event, the ATP Finals are the season-ending championships of the ATP World Tour and feature the top eight singles players and doubles teams of the ATP Rankings.

As an Editorial Sports Photographer covering a week-long tournament, my assignment was to capture news-related moments for the national and international press. However, the fundamental core of being a Photographer is to be creative, so capturing editorial photographs can put the creative side on the back shelf. Thankfully Nitto ATP Finals is a week-long tournament which gave me opportunities to be creative and capture not just your typical tennis action photographs.

I want to say thank The Nitto ATP Finals Media Team for providing excellent facilities and photo positions throughout the tournament. I also want to say a massive thank you to Canon for allowing me to borrow the 1DX MKII to cover the tournament.
