MMA Pro-fighter, Nicolas ‘Sharpshooter’ Dalby

As I already wrote in the other post, Nicolas invited another common friend of ours and me to cover his second MMA (mixed martial arts) pro fight against Jaroslav Poborský, who already fought 42 fights before this one, so it was fight nr 2 against fight nr 44

As this was the first time ever for me to be at such an event, I was really interested to get all informations about how such a fight works…

At the very start, each fighter needs to be checked by a doctor who is at the ring during all fights.

After the check-up, and shortly before the fight, Nicolas starts to prepare both physical and mentally… At this stage, he asked us not to ask him any questions anymore, as he fully needs to focus his mind… Later on, his coach tells us, that Nicolas is one of the only person who’s personally he is a bit scared of when he is in his ‘fightmode’…

Like in boxing and all other big fightsports, each fighters entry into the hall is celebrated with sound, smoke and lights to get the crowd and the fighters prepared for the fight.

Nicolas enters the ring and shortly after, the fight begins, while both fighters try to look as dominant as possible…

Nobody expected an easy fight, and in the first round, Nicolas had to take some serious punches…

But being said that Nicolas can get a angry personality inside a ring, the punches must have triggered something because at the second and third round of the fight, it was him, who delivered the punches…

Mr Sharpshooter himself in action

As there was no K.O. during the 3 rounds, the jury had to decide, and voted 3-0 for Nicolas.

As I already wrote in the first post about the Fightergalla, I was most impressed about how all the fighters could switch their whole personality into ‘fighting’, look mean and beat the crap out of each other, but then, at the second the fight is over, give each other a hug, respect and a smile as if they buddies who just needed to know who’s better…

The same applied to Nicolas and his contestant:

So in the end, Nicolas not only got a trophy, but as well a small motivation from his dad

It was def an experience for me to be at a MMA fight, and I am thankful to be able to shot these shots & hope to see further pro fights of Nicolas ‘Sharpshooter’ Dalby

HDR inspiration

After seeing the nice new HDR pictures from Kenneth Nguyen and pictures from Simon Wehye, I was def ready to give some old HDR stuff another try, after it didn’t really work out when I made the shots and I forgot about them again… The pictures are about a month old from my last visit in Berlin… I usually don’t really do HDR’s but when I walked over the train bridge and saw those huge clouds and their rain in combination with the sunset, I just wanted to give it a try…

So after new inspiration and and 2 youtube tutorials, here the new outcome…

Fightergalla 13

As a friend of mine, Nicolas Dalby, just started to go pro on MMA (Mixed martial arts) fights, he asked another friend an me if we want to come to his second pro fight and shoots some pictures…  It was my first time ever to be on such an event and had only seen a few fights on tv some time ago, so I was pretty excited about it…

It was impressive to see how the fighters looked angry towards each other at the start of the fight, and you could feel how focused they were, just locked down on their target… But this ‘anger’ disappeared at the second the fight was over, and went into joy and respect for another…

Here are some shots of various fights…

However, be advised that some of the following picture content violence & blood….

Dizzy Mizz Lizzy @ KB Hallen

As I was asked if I could do some working pictures of FLSS – FrontLine Service & Security Aps, I got the opportunity to take some shots of a great danish band, Dizzy Mizz Lizzy… They are doing a reunion tour right now, and played 4 times in the total sold out KB Hallen and it was a great show!

MOS DEF @ Vega, Copenhagen

After Talib Kweli already visited Copenhagen for an awesome show, it was now Mos Def’s turn to rock the city again…  Dope concert!

Lets get out and shoot some pictures..

It was one of of the sunniest days here in Copenhagen, sunglass weather and warm outside… Joint a friend to search for new picture spots here in CPH and got some spontaneous snapshots from the tour 🙂
