London Open BJJ Tournament

I got to cover the London Open Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament last weekend. It was an extremely well run tournament and finished over an hour ahead of schedule. I was asked to capture the tournament and not just the fights, which is a little challenging for me as I’m usually hyper-focused on the fights. Below are the images I got for the day. I’m looking forward to covering their super fight series in November.

- Mark Ruddick Photography - My images are an exploration of the human body under muscle stress — understanding the body’s strength, flexibility, and power. Creating these images has given me a better understanding of the human form which has transitioned into my commercial fitness work. 

I am a London, Ontario photographer who specializes in fitness, bodybuilding and fight photography.

I love to tell stories as anyone who's worked with me can attest. That includes visual stories through photographs. Let me tell your story and provide high impact images of you to sponsors, agencies, family or just for yourself.
