Mixed Martial Arts is "an extreme combat sport in which contestants are permitted to use the fighting techniques of wrestling and boxing but also those of martial arts such as kickboxing, judo, and karate." You may be familiar with the top level professional version you see on television as UFC. I have been photographing local MMA events since 2011. I enjoy shooting these events because the athletes are doing something they care about intensely. Fights are very emotional events, and that provides a rich environment for the type of images I am most interested in. The action is great, but the emotion is better. The fight community is full of good people, and I have been fortunate to become part of the group.
If I have ever photographed your fight, the pictures are still here, and it would be great to hear from you, find out where your fight career has taken you, and I would love to have the opportunity to shoot you again. Please comment on images, even if only so I can attach your name to the picture.
