Fight #500 - Global Legacy Boxing

I shot my first fight in March of 2014. It's taken three and a half years to make it to fight #500. Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts and Muay Thai have all been photographed. I still waiting to shoot a world title but I did get on North American network boxing with ShoBox. More than the fights though I've met a lot of great people.

Below are images from fight #500. I've photographed a couple of Marko's pro fights and did some pictures with him when he was at a training camp in London, ON. (Boomerz Boxing with Kyle Millette)

Steven Wilcox - WBA-NABA Super Lightweight Title Fight

Three Lions Promotions put on another great pro boxing event in Hamilton, Ontario. Steven "The Piranha" Wilcox defended his WBA-NABA Super Lightweight belt. Despite having to fight the last 4 rounds with only one hand, Steven was never in any trouble during the fight and dropped his opponent twice in the 6th round. A great night of fights overall.

Boxing images from United Promotions Boxing in Toronto

I went to Mississauga on Friday night for the United Promotions Boxing show. There were some entertaining fights on the card that say Josh O'Reilly move to 9-0 after crushing his opponent's body with a devastating left. Always a good time to get ringside for some fights in Toronto.

Fitness and Boxing Photo Shoot with Sam

Agency represented (Swagger Management) model Sam came down from Toronto to work with me a couple of weeks ago. We split the day between Powerhouse Training Systems and Warriors Boxing and Fitness.  I've worked with Sam a couple of times before in Toronto and he always brings a great enthusiasm to the shoot as well as a killer physique and work ethic.

I have access to cool locations like these for photoshoots as well as my fully equipped studio. So if you need images done for sponsors, agencies, promotions or just you, message me and we'll set it up.

We went for a bit of a cinematic feel for this image.

Beware of old men...

The saying goes "Beware of old men in professions when men usually die early." Entirely true in this case, a group of fine gentlemen that would lay you out if necessary. They give of their time to teach boxing and other assorted combat arts at Warrior's Boxing and Fitness. I finally pinned them down for a coaches portrait session and I am very happy with the results. The amount of knowledge, wisdom and lore that is in this group is really incredible.
