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.

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.

My First Boxing Show

September 7, 2014 - Boomerz Boxing Club puts on a Charity Boxing match for or Leukemia and Lymphoma research. It is a Charity close to the Heart of Lawrence Boom. This was my first boxing show ever for photography. I was welcomed be a lot of great people and it was interesting to go back through and see how many of the people from this event I've got to know. I enjoy the amateur boxing and I hope to keep shooting it for fun, even though the light is always challenging.

Here are a few of my favourites from that day.
