PFC 10 - Windsor - Fight Pictures

Strap in for a lot of pictures in this post. I shot the fights in Windsor on Saturday. 11 exciting matches none of which went to decision. After the fights I edited up the images and delivered them by 3:30 night of the fights. I love working with Prospect Fighting Championships and Jamie Champion who puts on the best shows in Ontario. I got to catch up with my friend Pete Trevino of IStartFights.com, as well.

- 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.


Amateur Boxing at Warriors

The home gym (Warriors Boxing and Fitness) had an amateur boxing show last night sanctioned by Boxing Ontario. It was a good competitive show.

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.

Fighter Pictures with Frank

Frank is a member at Warrior's Boxing and Fitness, where my studio is located and he wanted some simple fighter pictures for his social media. So I went out into the gym and we shot some of him working the heavy bag. Frank really hits the bag hard and there were a lot of frames of him bending the bag.

Sparring at Warriors' Boxing and Fitness

I went down to Warriors Boxing and Fitness this morning to shoot some sparring so I can get my timing back for next weekend's show. I wasn't going to go, but I kicked my ass and went down there. I had a chance encounter with Alysha Sopoco and she gave me some great kicking pictures. In addition there were a lot of people at sparring this morning. Thanks to everyone who was out.

Clothing Shoot with VVV Fight Co

Repeat business is the best business. I've been shooting for VVV Fight Co for a couple of years now, they even turned one of my pictures into a t-shirt. Just before their new Competition GI went on sale I went down to Scarborough to shoot it for promotional materials. This GI is truly a functional work of art.

Finally a garment fine enough to be buried in.
