- Someone that is currently a student of ANY form of mixed martial arts. This will include boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, Karate, Judo, Krav Maga, Capoeira, Kempo, Miletich Fighting System…literally anything where you are learning to use your body as the weapon. If you have training using weapons, that's great but not what I'm looking for at this time. I know I will be interested in that later though :]
- You can be at any level of your training. If you just started a week ago, a month ago, or 5 years ago, I don't mind as long as you remember some of the things you've been taught and can show me some stances, drills, positions, or combos for the camera.
- If you have gear, bring it. Gear is anything that you specifically wear when you are training. If it's just compression shorts and a t shirt, that's cool. However if you have training shorts with any sponsors or MMA logos (i.e. UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Gracie), a gi, mouthpieces or gloves, THAT is what I would really like to see. Someone all suited up. I have one pair of Xyience MMA open finger gloves that are a size Large that can be used but that's all I've really got.
- On the same note, if you attended a gym or school and they would not mind having shots of the entire group or of a training class in action, let me know. I would love to also get shots of the learning process and of practices and equipment.
This is all to help an aspiring UFC photographer reach her dreams and he kick my butt into getting more fun shoots done!
