Second trip to Combat Company Richmond for me and this time I was here to take some pictures of Nathan Jones and his buddies Jack and Chase. As always we had a warm welcome. I was admittedly a bit short for time so got on with sorting lights out ready for the shoot. I really enjoy taking portraits and appear to get better and better with each go so very happy with the results.

The guys were on great form and as always having a bit of a laugh and joke as we shot away. It was a short visit and I’d like to go back again for more, this time maybe doing something outside as I find martial arts gyms pretty uninspiring places to be honest, generally open spaces with poor natural light and horrible ceilings so doing something interesting isn’t always easy.

These shots were taken with a single large softbox, its a very simple setup really and yields great results.
