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 [...]

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

Lion Fighting Championships

It's been a while since I've shot MMA due to a change in tack for me and the way in which I want to work, however I had arranged with Leo Alderman some time ago to shoot Lion Fighting Championships some time ago and true to my word I was looking forward to getting back up [...]

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. To be totally frank, I wasn't sure what to expect, however I've met the promoter Cameron Else several times both at events where he was spectating and at Cage Warriors where [...]

UFC Fight Night Gustafsson vs. Manuwa

UFC Fight Night Gustafsson vs. Manuwa fight day was upon us yesterday and to say I was excited was an understatement. Ive never been to an arena of the sixe of the O2 for any event let alone for a fight night so i was expecting good things. Once checked in I casually took a look [...]

BAMMA 14 – LG Arena

Well what to say about the event this weekend....

Enfusion Live – Nov 2013

Enfusion Live was a new event for me as I'd not been cageside for kickboxing before. Arriving early with Roberto from MMAPLUS we did our normal and found McDonald's, this has become a bit of a tradition, the mid afternoon snack of the winning team before an event. We were met at the event and [...]

Cage Warriors 60 at Kentinsh Town Forum

This was my second trip to see Cage Warriors, the previous trip had been up to Liverpool so I was glad to be a bit closer to home at The Kentish Town Forum. The event was well run from the off, I introduced myself to the official Cage Warriors photographer, Dolly Clew who couldn't have [...]

Jimmy Wallhead

I was recently invited to shoot "Judo" Jimmy Wallhead for MMAPLUS up in Leicester, another of the fighters due to appear at BAMMA 13 in Birmingham on September 14th.

A Short Post about MMA Photography

I've been doing MMA photography for around nine months now and fortunately fell into it, it wasn't something that I decided to do at all, more an opportunity that jumped out at me partially by chance and I decided to grab it with both hands. I was hooked after my first event at Fury 6 [...]

UFC on Fuel TV 9

Glory 5

I was lucky to be invited to take photos for MMAPlus at Glory 5 this weekend. This was the biggest kickboxing event that the ?UK has ever seen so I was pretty stoked about the opportunity to say the least. After a few hassles getting in and getting the press seats sorted out we were treated to an awesome night of action from some [...]

UCMMA 31

A little late on getting this weeks entry up. I had a mad Saturday and Sunday - UCMMA 31 on Saturday and Fight Scene 5 on Sunday. Minimal sleep and lots of work. Over the two events I shot around 2,500 images. UCMMA 31 was awesome as expected. Great fights and superb matching ensuring that the punters [...]

UCMMA 30 Press Conference

I'm lucky enough to be going to UCMMA 30 this evening. As a precursor to this I was asked to attend the press conference prior to the main event at Troxy. It was great to see the fighters in a more relaxed environment and to be part of the whole event. As I've said in [...]

Laura Clark of New Wave Academy

I recently met Laura Clark through a job on the local magazine where I was asked to shoot her apartment - its slightly unusual. Soon after Laura asked me if I would be up for taking some portraits at New Wave Academy where she practices MMA. As a result of this she asked if I [...]

10th Legion MMA Fighter Composites

I though that it might be a bit of fun to do some MMA composites after my two recent outings. I wanted to achieve something more akin to 'cool fighter portraits' in a bit of an advertorial vein. As the images from the 10th Legion MMA outing in Hull on September 15th were better than [...]

New Wave Academy – MMA Fighters

I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot some of the local MMA athletes recently.  Its the first time that I have been able to practice a three light technique on people other than myself or close friends, so was somewhat apprehensive and excited about doing it especially given that they are all pretty [...]
