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 [...]

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 [...]

Polperro

This weekend we went to Cornwall and had a day trip to Polperro. We had thought about going to Looe, but glad we took the better option. I can't remember the last time I went here so it was nice to have the day out with Mum and Viveca. Smuggling is understood to have prospered [...]

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 [...]

The date for my birthday was to be Cage Warriors 64 at London’s Kentish Town, another card stacked full of talent  with the main three events being fighters that I had previously watched in some very exciting fights.

Manuwa vs. Gustafsson

First post of the year for me and its a good one. I've been suffering from camera withdrawal symptoms over the last few weeks so was glad to get the call from MMAPlus to invite me to Gymbox for a quick lunchtime shoot for the Manuwa vs. Gustafsson fight at UFC Fight Night London on [...]

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 [...]

The Wedding Present Play “Hit Parade” at Shepherds Bush

Another superb gig from The Wedding Present. The band performed Hit Parade in its entirety. The set started with a few favorites, after third song Kennedy I could have left just then happy! David Gedge was on form as ever and despite twenty years of playing still showed as much vigor as I witnessed when [...]

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. I'd not seen Jimmy fight live before but spent a bit of time looking him up before the trip to the Rough House. Jimmy started out [...]

New Wave Academy

Back to where it all started a few weekends ago. Colin Nwadike at New Wave Academy, my local MMA club invited me back to take some more fighter pictured for the website and for any events that are coming up. It was great to see some of the same faces again and to see how [...]

Cage Warriors 57

Last Saturday a trip up to Liverpool and Manchester for the MMAPLUS took place. Cage Warriors 57 and MMAExpo were on the menu. I've never been to Liverpool or Manchester so was pleased to see that there were no shell suits, perms and my car returned with all four wheels still attached, so none of the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Wonder Stuff – Islington Academy

Last night I shot The Wonder Stuff at Islington Academy. To cut to the chase, the gig was great. First up was Erica's band EN, not being familiar with her new album I was pleasantly surprised, fun quirky and very rock influenced, just look at Erica, it's what you'd expect isn't it. I've seen Erica [...]

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 [...]

Lillesden School For Girls – Model Shoot

Recently I was approached and asked if I would like to take some photos for an online magazine that will be published soon. Of course I jumped at the chance and soon plans were hatched.

The Asylum

Through the random nature of the internet I came across this location The Asylum. It's a chapel in a converted almshouse complex fairly near to where I live. The name is somewhat misleading as I don't believe that the location was ever an actual 'asylum' for the insane. I shan't repeat the history from the owners website, everything you need to know about [...]

London Shootfighters Shoot

Before Christmas I was invited to take some pictures at the London Shootfighters gym. Its an impressive place with some great equipment and some superb athletes. I was really happy with the images  and the  lighting setup worked very well indeed. We were there primarily to shoot John Hathaway, one of the UFC fighters at the gym, during the time we also [...]

Wistman’s Wood Panorama

My friend Jeremy and I generally meet up over New Year for a camera walk as our relatives both reside close to each other. I think that the last two years we have gone to Wistman's as its a safe bet for decent pictures. The weather during the morning when we met was not good [...]

The Wonder Stuff – Sleigh The UK – Shepherds Bush Empire

Another week another awesome gig. This time my all time favorite band The Wonder Stuff were headlining at The Empire. Supporting The Wonder Stuff were Pop Will Eat Itself and Jesus Jones, more favorites from back in the day. The tour has been aptly named Sleigh The due due to it being near Christmas, and what [...]

CUD @ Water Rats 15/12/12

This evening I went to CUD and One Eyed Wayne at Water Rats near Kings Cross. I've never been to the venue before but heard plenty about it in the past and I'm pretty sure that several big names have played there in one guise or another over the years. OEW were great providing a [...]

Delphic at Electrowerkz 11/12/12

I was extremely lucky to spot the most excellent Delphic on tour at Electrowerkx in London and equally lucky to snare a photo pass for the gig. I'd seen Delphic some time ago, maybe 2oo8 supporting Orbital at Brixton Academy and kept my eye on them since. The first album, Acolyte is superb and should [...]

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 31 Press Conference at Troxy

I'm lucky enough to be shooting UCMMA 31 again this weekend. Part of the deal is that I go to the press conference prior to the main event. Its a really fun part of the build up and good to see all of the guys facing off to each other. Its also a bit different photographically as [...]
