Former Empics photographer Aubrey Washington has swapped sun-kissed Mexico for chilly Scotland.
Washington, 27, has joined Scotland’s largest sports photo agency SNS Group. He began his career with Empics covering Euro 96 and the Atlanta Olympic Games. Since 1997 he has freelanced in the USA and Mexico for Reuters, Allsport, AFP and Getty Images.
Washington will be part of a five-man team of photographers at SNS who cover Scottish sport for media and corporate clients.
Washington said: “The standard of football in Mexico is lower than a snake’s belly. So I am absolutely delighted at the prospect of taking pictures again at grounds like Celtic Park and Ibrox”
