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. Previous weigh ins have been held at the Team Titan gym in North West London, its a great gym, but unfortunately [...]

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 [...]

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 had the pleasure of shooting Warrior Fight Series again this weekend.

Enfusion Live

Enfusion Live 19 London was the second time that I'd shot for Kieran Keddle. I'd been looking forward to the event for some time. I really enjoy shooting K1, quite a bit more than MMA, mor striking more kicks and no BJJ which although technical isn't very interesting from a photographic perspective. We arrived early [...]

Killacam Fight Night 7

Last weekend we took a trip to Margate for Killacam Fight Night 7 Invictus. I've never been to Margate or to a Killacam event.

Stand and Bang

Another Saturday and another event for me. This time Stand and Bang in Woking in a ring with ropes as opposed to an octagon with fencing. Yes it was time for a bit of K1 / klickboxing and straight boxing. This isn't my normal fare however the few kickboxing events that I've been to have [...]

MMA Photography Roundup for 2013

I thought it would be good to do a review of my year, most likely like everyone else is going to do. I had set myself a few soft goals this year, mostly based around my MMA photography, I wanted to shoot a UFC event and to become the 'official photographer' for an event and [...]

Jimi Manuwa Photoshoot at Lions Pride Gym

Some time ago Roberto of MMAPlus asked me if I would like to come and shoot Jimi Manuwa prior to his UFC fight in Manchester, of course I jumped at the chance. Especially so as it Jimi's gym, Lions Pride is just down the road from me in Croydon.   I'd met Jimi very briefly [...]

Last Saturday a trip up to Liverpool and Manchester for the MMAPLUS took place. Cage Warriors 57 and MMAExpo were on the menu.

Combat Company Richmond Interclub Competition

This weekend as there was a lack of big events in the area I asked the guys at Combat Company Richmond if I could come and shoot for them. I've previously done some portraits for them so thought that this might be a bit of fun and a chance to see some of the more regular club members. The event was [...]

I was lucky to be invited to take photos for MMAPlus at Glory 5 this weekend.

End of Year Summary

As seems to be the norm with photographers I thought that I'd sum up the last twelve months in a single post. It's far too difficult to pick out twelve images so I'll just add a few and give thanks to several people on the way. The highlight of the start of the year was [...]
