This weekend it was Shock n Awe 12 in Portsmouth. My wonderful mate at UNCAGED sorted me out at fairly short notice, so it was touch and go as to whether I’d be able to make it. Luckily he cam through and I was on my way down south.

Another production that I’d not been to before and was therefore unsure of what to expect. I can stay however that the night was awesome, superbly organised from the off. The fighting was great with the finale an excellent match between Mike Ling and Stuart Tyrie, stopped on a TKO due to some fairly substantial cuts.

The processed gallery is below, I’ll be adding to this during the week.

Photographically this was interesting, I thought that I would try something different at Shock n Awe. I’m in the market for a new lens for this type of shooting as its something that I really enjoy. I had hired a 24-70mm f2.8 and a 70-200 f2.8. The former being what i thought I would use the most, however once I got the 70 on my 5D  Mk3 I couldn’t take it off – it performed superbly. Sharp images, great zoom, fast focusing  I couldn’t want for a better tool.  If anyone wants to sponsor me for one, they’re around £1,800 and I’ll gladly punt your products!
