When I think about badminton the first thing that comes to mind is an athletic jumping smash. So when Sports Insight magazine commissioned us to photograph the sport we immediately set about planning how to capture this. Having shot a lot of action sports in the past we knew our trusty Profoto B1s would be able to freeze the player perfectly in mid air. All we needed then was some players so thanks to Stanway Badminton Club for letting us come and crash their training session.
