In The Ring with Farrar Hills

Its not every day you step into the ring with a professional boxer armed only with a Hasselblad camera!

I shot this for Farrar Hills back in March. Farrar Hills are a new company specialising in technical sportswear who also sponsor a professional boxer called Adil Anwar. I assembled the kit and headed down to a boxing gym near Leeds. I have to say this gym was old school and it was literally colder than it was outside, which for a January in the UK, is pretty cold. I shot a selection of images, some traditional fashion style and some action shots in the ring.

I have to admit to feeling pretty intimidated with only my Hasselblad wide angle 35mm lens between me and Adil’s lightning fast, knock out punches. I said to Adil at one point, as he was slamming his fists into a punchbag, “I can’t believe at some point that’s someone’s face!”

Farrar Hills are a great company and wether you are an athlete or not, their sports wear is formidable. Adil Anwar is also a great guy…as long as he’s not punching you!
