Hi I am Laura Malkin – a Sports Photographer from Stone in Staffordshire.
“Do something you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”. Sport and Photography are my two big passions in life
I have always been sport mad and this career path allows me to combine my two biggest passions; sport and photography.
I have grown up playing, coaching and officiating in sport and feel I have developed a good eye for a photo and a great deal of anticipation of things about to happen during games. In all my 20 odd years of playing both football and cricket I think we had a photographer down to a game once. My aim with Laura Malkin Photography is to offer high quality professional images of grassroots sport at affordable prices.
I first picked up a camera properly in 2017. I started off going round my local clubs to practice and have now grown to over 100 jobs a year alongside my 3 day a week day job as a Digital Media Executive for Allett Mowers. Here I look after the photography, social media, videography and the website etc.
I have worked for Stoke City FC helping club photographer Phil Greig on a home match day and any other events he requires assistance. I also work as a freelance sports photographer for several other agencies as well as working with the Central Sparks Women’s Cricket team based at Edgbaston. I have experience photographing international football, premier league, champions league games right down to grassroots. I spent two weeks with the Wales U21 side at the Toulon Tournament.
If you have a sports team and require professional affordable images please get in touch!! I am Stoke based but willing to travel for fuel.
