Last weekend I visited my good friends at the fighting arts academy to train with one of their BJJ coaches Arlans Siqueria who was helping them for an upcoming tournament so with my camera and gi we had a great session and I even got the chance to roll with an amazing black belt and I hope to do so again soon.
With 2013 behind us my eyes are fully set on exciting new projects and adventures in 2014 and it’s started with a good one. I haven’t climbed since the summer so when my friend and upcoming personal trainer Steve asked me to head down to the Arch in London to get some photos of him for his upcoming website and blog (and to climb) I couldn’t say no.
2013 has been a pretty adventurous year for me from travelling across the United States to working all over the UK, i’ve had my fair share of mileage and next year I hope to double it. I’ve had the chance to work on some amazing jobs this year with some great people and cant wait for what the new year brings.
To top my travelling off for 2013 I spent my christmas skiing in La Clusaz, France with my girlfriend and her family which was a nice change from the normal turkey dinner and christmas films.
I didn’t manage to snap as much as I wanted as skiing with my girlfriends brothers didn’t involve much stopping! But luckily I did snap a few nice shots.
I’ve been abit quiet the past couple of weeks and that is for a good reason! After sifting through over 20,000 images I have finally cut my selection from my amazing summer in the USA.
Head over to my new website to see them here….http://dandonovan.photoshelter.com/gallery/Just-Go/G0000WTgfYklN3xw/
I met up with East London artist Pira$y to talk about his upcoming projects and got a sneak preview of what is to come!
This is the opener to a mini series i’ll be shooting within the next couple of months so stayed tuned.
This weekend I was lucky enough to get to shoot for the IBJJF at the yearly London open in Crystal Palace.
With Saturday being all Gi and Sunday hosting the NOGI and white belt BJJ, competitors had plenty of chances to show what they were made of.
Here’s just a few of my favourites, for the full gallery click here!
