And just like that, my time at Tiger Muay Thai has come to a close. I haven’t posted much on this site, but that is only because there has been an abundance of material being created and posted elsewhere. Namely on Muaythaiphoto.com and throughout Tiger’s various outlets. Before touching on any of the work created, I just want to say that Tiger Muay Thai gave me the opportunity of a lifetime and allowed me to essentially live out a major dream of mine.
For the past three months, my job was to shoot fighters and to train alongside of them, while living in Thailand. It took me a bit to even wrap my head around this, and my primary concern throughout the trip was making sure I took full advantage of it. I can’t thank the people at Tiger enough for providing me with this opportunity.
Looking back I am shocked at how my work has changed and evolved not only in the past year, but even since being here. Having time to focus on my work like never before, time to think, examine, and create has had a clear visual effect on my work, and given birth to entirely new projects within it.
I am proud of the work, and am thinking hard about ways to release, display and share it. As part of that process I am now doing a video blog series in conjunction with Fury Magazine revealing some of my creative process. I am in Buriram back at Camp Lookchaomaesaithong for the week, before heading home. As time frees up I will begin posting on here once again, but will soon be reorganizing, and redesigning all of Figure of Fighting’s web presence as part of the new relationship with 2.One.Fly Productions. So check back frequently to see whats new. And once again, thank you to Tiger Muay Thai for allowing me to, very simply, do what I do.
