MMA fighters sparring for Broncolor USA training video

  • Broncolor USA training video and photo shoot

    Broncolor USA commissioned dramatic sport MMA photographer Andy Batt to create a training video with some of their newest lighting technology. Andy decided to take the class on location, and photographed mixed martial art athletes Will Hatcher and Jose Rodriguez sparring in a crossFit gym in Portland, Oregon. 

    The lighting was an intense mix of natural and strobe light, to stop the action and freeze authentic moments in time. The results are a series of images that are so real, you almost want to flinch. You can almost feel the sweat, the emotion, and the impact. These warriors are gritty and real. The sport portraits are both heroic and dramatic.
