Stand and Bang – Final

Well, Stand and Bang Final was Kyle Greaves swansong at the Woking HG wells centre at the start of 2016. Kyle is looking for a larger more suited venue for his excellent kickboxing and muay thai event. Stand and Bang is an awesome event. Although a lot of the fighters that Kyle puts on are [...]

Warrior Fight Series Weighins

I was going to write a post about the Warrior Fight Series event, but I always do that so I thought that I'd write about the weigh ins instead as I really enjoyed the shoot, so I hope you will keep visiting my blog after you see this. Previous weigh ins have been held at the [...]

Brix and the Extricated

Another Friday, and another gig for Mute Elephant. I really wasn't sure of what to expect from the lineup (Brix and the Extracted // The Membranes // Tom Hingley Band). I'd heard the names before, but not the music. I'd been asked to come along and take some photos so I wasn't going to turn down [...]

Fuzzbox at the 100 Club

I've not shot at 100 Club before so was excited to go there and take pics for Mute Elephant. To be totally frank I was more excited about seeing Tim Muddiman And The Strange  as well as Saffron than Fuzzbox. Tim opened the proceedings with his dark punky tunes, the band played an excellent set [...]

What Do Clients Want and Developing a Style

I recently took some pictures of E for a maternity shoot. I was really happy with them, I think E was too. In fact I think that they were the best set of images I've taken in a log time which is why I keep returning to them. There are a couple of photographers that I [...]

Maternity Shoot – Emma Jane

Another weekend and another maternity shoot. It was great to have another shoot this weekend. Buoyed by my previous maternity shoot I was excited to have a visit from Emma and her friend Nadia. The shoot was great with three or four outfit changes, along with changing the backdrop for a slightly different look. Emma [...]

KSW 32 The Road to Wembley

I've shot a few big shows in my time as an MMA Photographer, Cage Warriors // BAMMA // and UFC, but I'm pretty sure that nothing has come close to my experience at KSW 32 this weekend. Production was slick from the very start of the event, admittedly it did take a little bargaining to secure [...]

Maternity Photography – My First Shoot

I recently put a post on my local Facebook group, I was inundated with replies and to be hones it was my own fault for not being more specific in what I shoot. Surprising that so many people hadn't looked at my website to see my style. One of the respondents asked if I would [...]

Kennall Vale Gunpowder Mill

Viveca and I were down in Cornwall for the Bank Holiday weekend and decided to have a trip to the woods. Kennal Vale Gunpowder Mill to be precise. I'd seen pictures on the web of this place and thought it looked promising for some photos. The walk itself isn't very long and had we not [...]

Jack Hermansson vs. Karlos Vemola were set to battle it out for the Warrior Fight Series Middleweight Championship with Jefferson George defending his title against Brad Wheeler. Harry [...]

Neds Atomic Dustbin @ Koko

I've beena fan of Neds Atomic Dustbin for years (and years), most likley since I was about 18 so it was a real treat to be invited along to shoot them for Mute Elephant at Koko this weekend. It's twenty five years since the release of their breakthrough record Kill Your Television so what better [...]

Stand and Bang – Large

I was invited to shoot Stand and Bang - Large by my friend Kyle Greaves again. I've shot Stand and Bang a couple of times and its always a great evening. Kyle has a tight team around him, MC Peter Lowe with his exceptional enthusiasm. Reffing by Chris Batcheldor who is always fair and certinaly [...]

MMA Photography – The Half Century

This weekend I realised that I had passed the milestone of fifty MMA photography gigs. I thought that this would be worthy of a post to share my thoughts on the matter, how I have progressed and general feelings about the mixed martial arts scene. I shot my first MMA event at Fury in September [...]

Warrior Fight Series #3

I had the pleasure of shooting Warrior Fight Series again this weekend. This was Harry Shoebridges third outing on his own and the first at a London venue, the iconic York Hall, home to many boxing events over the years. I'd not shot here before so was interested in finding out how it would work. [...]

Royler Gracie at Eddie Kone BJJ

This Sunday I spent the day in the company of Royler Gracie at Eddie Kone BJJ. I'm no know it all with Jiu Jitstu bu any means, but I do know that the Gracie family are up there and when the call came from MMAPlus asking if I'd be interested in shooting it I jumped [...]

The Gas Masks

One of the final stops on our tour was to the school in Pripyat. This was a shot that we all wanted to capture, its been taken hundreds of times before, but to actually see the number of gasmasks left here is astounding. There must have been around a thousand of these left on the [...]

The Grabber

There are lots of 'things' left around Pripyat as you would expect from an abandoned city, most of these have only slightly elevated radioactivity, the majority of the vehicles have been removed to another location where they can be monitored and visitors are rarely allowed to see them due to the latency of the radiation, [...]
