    Some badass mofo photos here. The one with Hendo sparring is sick, just makes him look like such a warrior.

    Glad that his photos have been getting put up a lot this year, top addition to Lowkick and I appreciate the work.

    Thanks Bro, this site just keeps on increasing the gap between the other MMA sites.

    WoW ! Yeah I admit that its really hard to take pictures of someone training. hahahahahahahahaha.

    Those pictures are nice for the press about mma, but you cant say he is a good photographer man. Just look on internet , all the amazing artistic photographer ,who really “CREATE” images , they do the composition , the lighting ,back ground etc… Those are the one who kickass in photo, but, not a jounalist photographer

    @ M1, Dave S. gives the guy a compliment and you want to have a debate on the best p4p photographer…yawn. Stop hating. Just say, “Thanks for the pics!” or ‘cool’ the above comment. Troll.

    I think we might have to invest in a paddle and a dunce hat for M-1
    Maybe some after school suspension as well.

    Ive actually thought of buying a nice digital photography camera and trolling the UFC events, but it helps to not have a full time job already that youve invested too much time in already to leave. It would be very cool if you find the right media to sell your pics too and you gain a following, thats the hard part.

    its not against the photographer. Of course its cool to see the fighters training picture. im thankful for that. What i dont accept ,is that David S calls him the best photgrapher when there are a lot of talented and creative photographer ,who are not famous /or who cannot live of their passion ,when they have a lot more talent than this guy . What I mean is that this guy is a journalist, he does press type of pictures, he is not the best photographer at all. The best photographers are creative. This is what i meaned
