KSW 32 The Road to Wembley

I've shot a few big shows in my time as an MMA Photographer, Cage Warriors // BAMMA // and UFC, but I'm pretty sure that nothing has come close to my experience at KSW 32 this weekend. Production was slick from the very start of the event, admittedly it did take a little bargaining to secure [...]

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 [...]

Warrior Fight Series #3

I had the pleasure of shooting Warrior Fight Series again this weekend. This was Harry Shoebridges third outing on his own and the first at a London venue, the iconic York Hall, home to many boxing events over the years. I'd not shot here before so was interested in finding out how it would work. [...]

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 [...]

Cage Warriors 64

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. Danny ‘Hot Chocolate’ Roberts, Jake ‘Brutal’ Bostwick and ‘Capcom’ Cory Tait. The undercard was no less exciting [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Jimi Manuwa Photoshoot at Lions Pride Gym

Some time ago Roberto of MMAPlus asked me if I would like to come and shoot Jimi Manuwa prior to his UFC fight in Manchester, of course I jumped at the chance. Especially so as it Jimi's gym, Lions Pride is just down the road from me in Croydon.   I'd met Jimi very briefly [...]

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 [...]

UFC on Fuel TV 9

This weekend I had my first experience of a UFC event. It was exciting from the off - hard work and long days but well worth it. I was shooting on behalf of MMAPLUS who looked after me very well. We shot the weigh-in on Friday then the main event on the Saturday. The Globe Arena where UFC on [...]

Team Underground MMA

My friend Danielle West of Team Underground MMA and New Wave Academy asked me if  I would be able to take some more shots of her for a fight that she may be doing in Asia for her sponsors  I'd had a day off on Thursday and suggested that it would be a good idea to fit her [...]

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 [...]

For the second week in a row I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot some MMA. This time in Hull - a four hour drive away at an event titled "10th Legion Championship -  Army of Gods"  . I had had a brief conversation with Paul Fitz at CAGEDmag on the Friday and [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
