Last weekend I was fortunate to be invited to shoot the Ultimate British Wrestling Show in St. Albans UK.  Incredibly talented people and a spectacular show.  If you get the opportunity to take in the next show in Cambourne..you should definitely go!

Always a sad sight.  This unloved decaying yacht may never taste the sea again.

Last weekend, I was again lucky enough to be invited to photograph the UBW Wrestling Show in Cambourne.  The show was again a spectacular event, and of the 100+ shots released, these are the ones selected for the facebook group associated with the upcoming short film - Corazon de Leon.

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be offered the opportunity to photograph the inaugural UBW Tournament in St. Albans.  It was a great shoot, the lighting was challenging, but I'm pretty pleased with the results.  Hoping to get a return invite for next month.
