Today I had the pleasure of meeting Roy Malpas at EJ Churchill shooting ground. Roy is a much loved regular client and comes in with his crew every week for 50 bird sporting round come rain or shine. Not only is Roy a pretty hot shot but he has also just celebrated his 90th Birthday.
As fit as a fiddle he will put some of us younger ones to shame. Having shot his first gun in 1941 Roy has a wealth of knowledge of guns and as it happens Photography and Cinematography, so you could say we got on like a house on fire. I only hope I have his energy and zest for life when I am his age….
I just wanted to post a quick portrait of him for his family and friends to see. I will post a few more on here in the future.
In the meantime is Roy the oldest clay shooter in the UK?

This morning I was at EJ Churchill photographing a ladies shooting event called The Shotgun and Chelsea Bun Club, a club set up by Ladies Shooting to promote affordable, safe and inclusive ladies shooting days in a fun and female only environment.
