Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino by Scott Hirano

A great way to gain insight into Scott Hirano’s creative direction and how he gets the photos he does is to take a look at his inspiration. His photojournalistic style is inspired by the likes of: James Nachtwey, Eugene Richards, Nina Berman, and especially one of his favorites W. Eugene Smith. He feels that their secret is to invest a lot of time into their subjects, which in turn creates images that are way too real. Scott continues… More

This is our second instalment of our feature called “Behind the Lens: The Unsung Heroes” – in which we celebrate some of the best photographers within the fight industry. Many of these guys and girls help to accelerate the growth of the female fighting industry, and their work and effort often go un-praised. When a great photo of a fighter is seen on social networks and shared, the photographer themselves are often forgotten – however the fact that it was shared means that they have helped the presence of the captured fighters, and in turn the overall industry.

In part one we introduced you to incredible French photographer Thomas Weber. We specifically split this article in two so we could shoehorn in more of his great photos for you. In this part we’ll discuss his thoughts on female fighters, and briefly mention his other subject matter.

He tells us that he loves working with female fighters because they are a minority. It’s a growing minority might we add, in part due to work such as Thomas’ being seen on platforms like facebook by women young and old being inspired by seeing others challenging themselves. He says… More

You may recall that last month we introduced this new feature called “Behind the Lens: The Unsung Heroes” – a celebration and tip of the hat to some of the best photographers in the fight industry. For it is these guys and girls that help to accelerate the growth of female fighting, and they often go unnoticed as people. Our first photographer that we’ll be taking a look at is Thomas Weber. If you missed the introduction article and are interested in reading it, you can see Part 1 and Part 2 on these links. More

Celebrating Two Years of Awakening

Celebrating Two Years of Awakening

Celebrating Two Years of Awakening

We have just passed our two year anniversary! We wanted to create a quick montage for, by way of celebrating the last two years and some of the athletes we’ve worked with. What you see in the video is just a very tiny portion of what we’ve been up to, but some of our favorite work.

In the past two years we have taken over 30,000 photographs, and shot around 500 hours of footage. Of course this is just a small part of what we do here. Editing our favorites down in to one video was a real mission! The video itself is a bit on the long side at 7 minutes, but what can you do!?

We hope that you enjoy it, and please, please, please “like” and share it around!

Every day for the next four days, we’ll be posting a Judgement Day 2 article, one for each of the four female fighters competing at the event. We have an interview with Victoria Lomax; who challenges from the Awakening World Title, and both Vicky Church and Lauren ‘The Hatchet’ Huxley who face each other for a British Title.

Lucy Payne Training Shoot

We video interviewed Lucy Payne a few weeks ago, which you can see here if you missed it. For this reason, we decided to go along to Touchgloves instead and photograph her training for the fight. More
