I first heard about the event when i was asked if im interested in taking a couple portraits of all the boxers for the event. But because of a couple things that happened, i missed the boat a bit for the portraits.
I wanted to do a nice grungy / moody type portrait of each boxer with a 3 light setup that give Joel Grimes his edge with his photos. But hey.. Next year!
On the day of the fight i managed to get a last minute ticket and decided to just take my camera along for fun. As soon as i walked in and saw the actual size of the event / the size of the ring and all the spectators, i knew it was going to be a great night!
The event had 15 fights in total and was scheduled for 3 rounds each. I managed to stay and photograph all the matches and i have to say.. It was a lot of fun to shoot action again! But because i have been getting more into Documentary photography, i applied those guides / rules etc i have with documentary style work to the boxing event.
The photos that were taken from the event will now be sold as prints to raise more funds for the charity.
I was over at the Premier of the “Fight Night” DVD just a week after the event. The night was planned to show the DVD that was made of the Fight Night event and a quick Prize giving. The DVD and photos will be sold to raise more money for the charity. I stuck around until the end just to take a couple press photos for the organizer.
I have uploaded a small collection of the photos that were taken on the boxing night and then some from the DVD / Prize giving night.
