This weekend saw me eating masses of chocolate, and photographing the wedding of my good friend Rachel Smith… I guess I better get used to calling her Rachel Sharpe now.
She booked me for the wedding quite a while ago, and I think I blogged at the time how honoured I felt that she had chosen me as she just graduated with a degree in photography last year and knows a lot of very talented photographers. But aside from a massive congratulations to Rachel and Aaron, that isn’t the point of this blog.
In 2014 I was brought in by TMAS Liverpool to photograph their Battle of the Forces event. This is a fight night they hold quite regularly and sees fighters from different police forces coming together to compete and raise money. Before the fights started I did some portraits of the competitors and Karl, one of the fighters wanted a shot doing of him and his girlfriend Gemma. Having a bit of a chat with them quickly led to the realisation that we know a lot of the same people as they train at Lowe Martial Arts which is a part of the CMAA, who I also train with. This is the shot I did of them, you can even see it on the wall at the Denton dojo:
