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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

Fury MMA at Proud O2

This weekend I was invited to shoot Fury MMA at Proud O2 in London. Having not shot at or even attended an event like this before I was a little nervous and unsure of how to approach the shoot along with not knowing 'the score' for such a thing. After a bit of waiting around [...]

Crystal Palace Underpass

I took a trip to the underpass last night, its still very securly locked up, however I have no doubt that there is a way in somehow. There's currently a campaign underway locally to see if the location can be used for some sort of community space, gallery or bar. Either fo these would be [...]

Private Residence #2

My friend Jeremy asked me to come and shoot a few images at a project his wife had been working on for some time. She's an ace interior designer. This is one of the first places that she has worked on in a minimalist fashion. The images that I'm going to put up really don't [...]
