communication breakdown

Interesting really, the day after I decide to stop shooting music I get some feedback from a major band / asked for images and then I get emailed an offered a press pass to another large gig - but you know what, I'm just not there right now. I might be some day, but I'm not now. I've shot boxing two days in the last seven and it doesn't really do it for me either - the live action bit, but what did bring some sparkle was a couple of portraits I've shot during the last week - I'm still learning and experimenting, But I had a hell of a lot of fun shooting this stuff.

Today was a shoot with a young British Flyweight boxer named Ashley Sexton, Flash Ash if you will... Very basic set-up...
