Dan Hardy at Suffer
Photographing Dan Hardy was a personal thrill for me, not just as an MMA photographer, but as a fan of the sport. Dan invited me into Fran Mir’s private gym, Suffer and gave me full access to a typical night of his own training. Dan was extraordinarily welcoming and accommodating. Watching him train was inspiring. As much as he has achieved in the sport, I watched as he not only worked to maintain his level of skill, but to learn new ones and to improve his game. Personally Dan was warm and understanding and appreciative of the work that I am trying to do, and because of that, I could not be happier to have him be a part of this project.
