Before their journey down to London for the 2012 Olympic Games, Boxers from Team Nigeria and Team Tanzania were located in Bradford for around 6 weeks prior to the Games. The brand-new facilities of the Bradford Police and College Boxing Academy; located at Bradford College, were used as their base and training ground in the lead-up to the Games. I joined them for a few of their training sessions, photos are below.
Two Male Nigerian boxers; Lawal Lukman and Muideen Akanji were also based in Bradford in the run-up to the Games.
Selemani Kidunda for Team Tanzania was also based in Bradford, and used the excellent facilities daily.
I have been working with the Bradford Police and College Boxing Academy for a few months now, photographing the Boxers as they go about their daily training sessions. They have recently moved into a new £300,000 training facility, which also sees many other Athletes using the Boxing equipment. Some of the Bradford Bulls Rugby Players came along today to carry out a training session, and I was on hand to photograph them. A selection can be seen below. Thoughts comments and feedback is welcomed and appreciated. Enjoy!! x
I have been selected along with a fellow student to work with/alongside the Bradford Police and College Boxing Academy, and photograph the Boxers whilst they train in preparation for competitions. I went along recently for a test shoot with them just to have a little practice. A handful of my favourite photos are below. I am really looking forward to photographing the competitions. Thoughts, comments and feedback are welcomed and appreciated. Enjoy!! x
