Martial Portraits

Martial Arts Portraits

Recently I have been fortunate enough to have shot a lot more martial arts portraits and I thought it would be nice to do a little round up of the amazing martial artists that I have had the pleasure to working with.

During the month of April I travelled around the UK, as far north as Harrogate & East Midlands, and South as far as South Devon, Sussex & London. At each location I was both training martial arts (Taiji & Eskrima) and photographing martial arts.

April consisted of personal shoots (seen below) and photos for an upcoming Taiji book by my teacher, Nigel Sutton which I'll be able to share at a later date. This post today will concentrate on the personal photoshoots during the trip in April and a martial arts photoshoot for Shotokan Instructor Ash Hawkes in our local Kingsbridge, Devon.
