Lockdown Fighter Portraits

Untitled photo

We’ve all been living in strange times recently, lockdown has hit everyone and daily routines have changed dramatically.

Personally all of my photography bookings for the remainder of the year have been postponed or cancelled and all sporting events I was due to photograph were cancelled.

Strange times indeed which is why I was happy to receive a request from local X-Treme Kombat MMA Champion Ryan Thomas to take some promotional shots of him.


Lockdown rules had been relaxed a little but Gyms were still not open so we had to make do and shoot some images in my garage. Not ideal as there’s no equipment in there (well unless you count a lawnmower) so with no bags to work with Ryan shadow boxed while I snapped away, we ended the session with a couple of portraits.

I shot and processed the images to be moody and atmospheric, creating black and white ones too so Ryan had a selection to choose from. There’s a selection from our shoot below and the rest can be viewed in the Sports gallery, if any other local MMA fighters or sportsmen/women would like something similar then get in touch.


Darren.
