Boxing photography Carl Frampton
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Channel 5. They had the exclusive TV rights to broadcast the upcoming Carl Frampton vs Andres Gutierrez boxing fight. The assignment was to shoot the stills photography to promote the fight. As a result the images were to be used as part of a multi-channel advertising campaign for use online, press and TV.
The day of the shoot involved working side by side with the TV crew. While they did their TV footage I got on with my photography. The shoot took place in Carl’s training gym in Wandsworth Town. Carl is a great guy and a fantastic person to photograph, a natural in front of the lens. Everything had to be shot in available light, as a consequence this meant no flash photography. Therefore had to make use of just the TV lights and any natural light from the gyms ceiling windows.
The outcome of the shoot resulted in some gritty and moody boxing photography that hit really the brief for the client Channel 5. Really pleased with the outcome of the images as was the client.
