On Assignment: Fashion Shoot for Rumble in Jamrock Featuring Nicholas Axeman Walters

About 3 weeks ago, I was told about an upcoming boxing fight with #1 WBA ranked feather weight, Jamaica’s Nicholas “Axeman” Walters who would be going up against #5 WBA ranked feather weight Daulis Prescott And apparently there was gonna be a fashionshoot with which we could incorporate the boxers as well.

My imaginaton went overboard and i actually thought i was gonna get access to a real boxing ring etc. however it was a much more low key production with regards to the props and the set.

As always we made the best of what we had, and the end result was awesome :D. I got many phone calls, facebook tags and so on congratulating me on the shoot. The spread was really nice in the Gleaners Flair Magazine, if you only saw it online you didn’t really get to experience it.

From the entire image set my favourite image is one of the following 2. (i really cant pick)

First we have the enter the ring photo which I found really fitting to tie everything together (lady, fashion + boxer + sport)

And then we have the image that was used for the Cover Photo which I really liekd as well, my only gripe is the black bra peeking through Being strapped for time on this assignment may have made me overlook things that I’d usually catch.

Why is my favourite photo not one with the jamaican contender you ask.. because it just isn’t the girls really brought it with the other boxer maybe it was his spanish accent (I kid).

And lastly here’s a group photo of the models, mua and sportsmax representatives responsible for organising the whole ordeal

It was definitely a fun Photoshoot and it was also the first time I gave my Ab800 a test run, it served me well :)
