Thai-Boxing portraits

I really love taking athlete portrait photographs, its inspirational to see their dedication to strive to be the elite and capturing them in one moment. This session I came up with one very simple technique to catch them in an in between state – after each session of hard training I pulled them to one side to take their shot. The look is a mixture of attitude and exhaustion which I love.

Its a pleasure visiting Bradford’s Pro-Thai boxing Gym. Many thanks to Scott and each who stood in front of the lights that night.
