Tear sheet – promotional portrait

One of my promo portraits of professional MMA fighter Paul “Semtex” Daley used to promote his fight at Legends 2 in Russia.  The image was shot in Paul’s Nottingham gym against a white background.  This gave the graphic designers a high quality image to work with and cut out and place onto any background they wanted.  By using my standard “three light setup” the graphic designers don’t have to worry about the direction of light as it will appear that it is coming from every direction.

 

I always love to see my work in use, especially for movie style advertising posters like this one.  Athlete portraits, like this one of Paul, always work really well for this and I really like the work that the designers did with this ad.
