I’m Robert Lilley and I’ve been an avid photographer for over 20 years. Ever since the birth of my first daughter, a camera was a must to capture every moment. Suffice to say I took a camera pretty much everywhere.
Grassroots football photography started when I became Media Manager at Great Wakering Rovers, and producing everything myself. I”ve been at a few clubs ever since but photography has always been very close to my heart and starting ‘Offside Photography’ was a means to bring good exposure to grassroots clubs.
I try and get to as many clubs and grounds as possible and being accredited by the National League, Isthmian League, Essex Senior League and the Essex Olympian League, ensures that I can build a close affiliation with participating clubs.
