Galashiels Muay Thai Show – Scottish Muay Thai Council
It’s been a long while since I’ve been free to photograph fight shows but it was great to get back into it for the day. I teamed up with photographer Pearl Kinnear with a view to providing coverage of all areas of the event and also supplying prints on the day. I concentrated om the computing and printing side of things, shooting the action in between, whilst leaving Pearl totally free to cover the fights. This worked well, but unfortunately meant that I was unable to photograph every fight and only a small section of others. Here are a few shots from my coverage; for all my photos from the day visit my Flickr page, here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7944143@N05/sets/72157627722930618/
Pearl will soon also have many more of her shots at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pearl_kinnear/
What I was really pleased with was that we took the chance to take a few fighter portraits before the show. Only a few of the guys took us up on the offer (you know how self conscious these big, girly fighters can be about their image 😉 ), but I’m pleased with the results & I hope the guys will be too. This is something that I’ll be looking to do more of in the future.
I was really impressed by the level of the fights on the show & the running of the event was really smooth considering there were a whopping 19 fights taking place!
Anyone who wishes to purchase any of the photos (with watermark removed obviously) just has to send me a message.
