Pro Rugby Coach photographer is winner at Midlands awards night

Pro Rugby Coach photographer, Mike Sewell, has been honoured at the Midlands Media Awards ceremony in Birmingham.

He picked up the title of Sports Photographer of the Year.

Mike has worked on all of Pro Rugby Coach’s photo shoots since the launch of the site.

He has also worked at the Leicester Mercury for 13 years, is no stranger to awards ceremonies and might need to think about buying a larger trophy cabinet soon.

“I was really quite excited to have won it because I’ve won it four times in recent years,” Mike told the paper.

“We do a wide variety of work at the Mercury but sport is my passion.”

Mike took up photography at the age of 10, encouraged by his dad, Dave, who is still a keen amateur photographer.

Mike said: “I’m lucky to have a job that’s also my hobby and super-chuffed to be winning awards like this one.”

Here at Pro Rugby Coach, we are chuffed that Mike works with us too.
