Photographing Beckham

Here's another snippet from Ross Kinnaird, the Getty Images photographer who is following the England team.

Beckham is once again the focus of the photographic brigade. I had to be quick shooting him warming up. It's a full turnout by the media again who are all kept a good distance from 'the action'.
I squeeze a 400mm lens in amongst the pack to pick Beckham out of the crowd. The light is good.
Roll on Saturday when the real fun starts with action goals and lots of Rooney and Sven on the sidelines.

Well, what can you say? It's Getty, it's brilliant.

In answer to the above question you would need to get permission from Getty to use their images:

Following Beckham's petulant dismissal during the Argentina game in France, I'm hoping he doesn't do this to the ref in Germany...
