The thumbnails displayed on these pages are small images showing the
photographs I took during the event.
Cricket World specialises in Internet coverage of major indoor
cricket tournaments. In 2000 we provided up-to-the-minute
coverage of the World Cup in South Africa, via mobile-phone
contact from associates on site in South Africa. They'd phone
the results through, and we'd have them published within minutes
on Indoor Cricket World. It wasn't ideal, but it meant the
scores were available to the world within minutes of each
Then the World Masters was held in Perth, Western Australia,
our home town.
Cricket World provided up-to-the-minute scores and eye-witness
match reports directly from that tournament, and also published
an extensive collection of photographs taken during the competition.
It was our coverage of the International Masters that attracted
the attention of the organisers of the 2002 World Cup, and
an invitation was extended for us to travel to Wellington,
New Zealand, to provide the official, on-the-spot internet
coverage. The invitation was accepted, and here we are.
the technically minded, the photographs on these pages were
not taken using a digital camera. I use a Nikon FE2
SLR, with either a 28mm wide-angle or a Nikon 35-110mm zoom.
The film is processed at a public processor, but instead of
prints I have the photos burned onto CDs in high-resolution
The photos are then loaded from the CD onto my laptop, converted
into reasonably low-compression jpegs (compression factor
of 20), resized, and then incorporated into the pages of Indoor
Cricket World. It's a tad slower process, but the results
are significantly better than a digital camera (SHELDON: okay,
that was 2002. Nowdays I use the lastest full-frame Nikon
Digital SLR cameras, and the new gear takes truly amazing
