Amazing work man, really inspirational. How did you get into MMA photography? And photography as a whole? Any tips for an amateur?

Here's one more...



It's not the greatest picture, but I had a lot of fun doing it. You see, it was a cold winter day (there was still snow on the ground at her feet), the sky was filled with smog, and the sun had just gone down - everything was gray and dreary.

Not to be deterred, I through a full CTO filter on my flash head, zoomed it out as far as it would go, and pointed it at a reflector, outside the field of view on the left, to bounce it back at her from the side. Voila, instant fall sunset.

There are few things I hate as much as bridal/wedding photography, but this was for a family member who was in a bind, so I bit the bullet and did it.

Yo Kry... where in Wales you at?

I almost moved to Pembrokeshire, but that fell through. I was gutted beyond belief. Your area looks more towards the north. Is that the case? I visit Conwy a lot, and the surrounding areas are some of the most beautiful on the planet.

Man, Wales rocks. I know many people who have never been cant really appreciate what I'm saying... but trust me... Wales is a truly spectacular country. I'm not going to give up till I end up there, in a straw bale house, on the side of a mountain. I dont care how long it takes. Its my mission in life.

Shame its full of Welsh people though...

I'm in Swansea dude, about 45 min drive from Pembrokeshire! Right next to the Gower (google!!) Haven't ventured up north in a long while.

Man I want the same, house wise anyways. I'd love an old farm house with no neighbours near the coast. I could happily live my life out then. Wales is starting to get recognition for it's beauty, The Gower was the first area in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding natural beauty, and Pembrokeshire coast has just come 3rd in the top 10 walks on the planet - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/ar...limanjaro.html

It is a shame about us living here though, we're a funny folk indeed! I sound Welsh to English people, and English to some Welsh people (the ones that dwell in the valleys that even I can barely understand) so I get alot of 'OH ARE EW AN ENGLISH?' ... 'Am I a what good sir?' .... 'EW POSH AS **** EW CHEEKY CANT'...

We're a charming people really...compared to the Scottish anyways

I really don't take advantage of living where I do. That will change from tomorrow...

So, I'm going to start doing more portraits soon and getting a website up and going to add my portfolio to. I need a watermark stamp to go on each and everyone of my images.

It needs to be big enough to stop images being stolen (or at least deter would be stealers as it'd be too much effort to remove) but subtle also.

So far I have...



Any comments would be appreciated.

Been a while since I posted in here, and as M.C is getting a new camera it reminded me, so bumping with some new (ish) shots.

Very nice man!

I will post some in a day or two when I get time to really get some good shots. I just got my camera today so I am mostly
learning the settings and how to adjust everything manually.

Double post, but I have to point out that the black dog on your last post Kry, looks like a werewolf that is bending over and flexing his arms.
