IN PRODUCTION

TEAM (Post Production)

The Belconnen Magpies Women’s AFL team are on a winning streak and we’ve been following every move. From freezing cold nights on the training pitch, locker room talk and adrenaline pumping hard hits whilst competing for the footy. This is no fashion shoot. This is sweaty, smiling, muddy, out of breath, messed up hair women not concerned with how they look and only concerned with winning.
