Hi Steve! First off let me start by saying great site.
I have a couple of passions in my life. The gym and photography. I have wanted to combine the two for a while and have started doing just that.
I got tired of seeing all the pretty posed pictures of fighters and bodybuilders and wanted to capture the training they have to go through before they step into the ring, the cage or onto the stage as this only shows 1% of what these people go through day in day out. I am putting a site together called ironsportsphoto.co.uk and it will hopefully be going live in the next month.
None of my pictures are posed or staged I am simply in the background taking pictures while these guys get on with it. I have included a few for you to hopefully have a look at and feature. The Thai boxer was taken with a canon 1d mark 2 with a 50mm I believe and the colour one with the Canon 1ds mark 2 with the new sigma 35mm 1.4 and the black white resting pic with the fuji x100s.
Software used was aperture with nik software plug-ins.
Thanks very much for your time
All the best
