Knock out Kidney Disease Posters

A couple of weeks ago Jamie Champion of Prospect Fighting Championship came to me about shooting the promo pictures for his upcoming event "Knock out Kidney Disease" in conjunction with Showdown in the Downtown. Mattia Del Cul-Hovorka was selected as the model and we decided to take the pictures at Warriors' Boxing and Fitness in London, ON. It is going to be a dinner / kickboxing event.

We got a bunch of really good pictures, then selected a few really good ones and got to work on creating the posters. We came up with 2 similar posters featuring the photography. I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Version 1 of the Poster featuring a flying knee.

Version 2, the High Kick.

Amatuer Boxing at Warriors' Boxing

Rob Caron, owner of Warriors' Boxing and Fitness in London, ON put on a great boxing show Saturday night. The event was sanction by Boxing Ontario. It was an exciting night of fights with 3 stoppages, Scott Lamont's boxing debut and an absolute slug-fest for the main event. The event was well attended by over 300 people. I'm really looking forward to the next event.

Spartan Cosplay with Lori for a Cause

Fitness model and all around bad-ass, Lori, came down from Ottawa to shoot her new cosplay with me. Lori is touring with the costume and setting up shoots all over the province and donating the proceeds to a military charity. It is a great cause and I'll be donating some prints to the charity as well. If you are interested in a print, let me know.

Lori built her costume from scratch, no pre-made pieces on this one. It looks fantastic and photographs even better. Message her to setup your own shoot. She really had the physique to pull this off as a fitness competitor.

DO Boxing Show - Behind the Scenes at our Promo Shoot

I had my good friend Dameon Okposio come into studio to update his head shots.

Dameon created a behind the scenes video of the shoot for his YouTube show: DO Boxing Show.

You can always use a good head shot for business. Dameon does a lot of seminars and speaking engagements so the pictures really support him. In addition Dameon writes for and publishes Below the Belt Magazine. We did some basic portrait work with Dameon in his unique shirts and then went on the head shots.

I might have got the best shot of the day after the shoot at dinner.
