Prospect Fighting Championships

Fight Poster Design for PFC

I’m working my eleventh show with Jamie Champion’s Prospect Fighting Championships. In addition to shooting the fights I’m photographing the promo pictures. I also did the poster designs for this event. Great to work with the PFC team again.

Main Event

Not every fighter appearing on the posters will have a fight, we over shoot as injuries leading up to the fight often happen.

Announcing the event.

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.
