    A lot of really good shots! My favorite is #7 from the bottom, counting up. It's an awesome shot!

    Been watching your pictures of boxing and MMA. Great Shots once again. Which pictures are harder to take??? It seemes to me that the MMA pictures are much more difficult. Whats your opinion??????

    Thanks guys.

    Comparing MMA to boxing... shooting them there's a lot of factors going into each event that may provide a unique set of challenges.

    Boxing gives me some great shots because it's 100% stand-up. The ropes are wide open, but they can also get in the way as the fighters move around the ring.

    MMA can also provide me with great shots, but I've got to get them while it's there because on average the fights are much shorter, especially on the regional level. Ground action is far easier to shoot than boxing because it's slower, but the angles aren't always there for good shots, and yes, sometimes the chain link can be problematic when shooting at different angles.

    Of course the universal problem with both is lighting, particularly with the smaller venues. Mixed lighting, uneven lighting, cycling lights...

    Are you allowed to use flash during your pictures while they are fighting?????

    Some promoters and commissions don't care, but as a courtesy to the fighters I never do. In fact, two rules I always follow are 1) don't give away work, and 2) no flash during fights.
