Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a sports photographer at a major sporting event?

Brendan Moran takes us through his job as a Sportfile photographer at this years Rugby World Cup and how he does his job under immense pressure.

2015 is Brendan’s fifth world cup to date and he will be covering everything from the Irish games to a few others throughout the duration of the tournament.

"Generally at training sessions you only get 15 minutes so you have got to work quick", he says.

"Pick off the guys that are in the news or the lads who will be talking to the media."

"Technology has changed so much that now we are able to send the images from the cameras, so what’ll happen here now at the match is internet cables on pitch-side will be plugged into the cameras.

"It takes the pressure off the photographers and they can concentrate on the game."
