LIFESTYLE…..Boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko

By julietlemon June 2 2012 - 10.33 PM

The location for this shoot wasn’t a motor racing circuit in a far flung destination but instead a boxing gym in London Bridge.  The air of the gym was filled with musty sweat lingering from previous training sessions, dimly lit by neon strip lighting and located under the arches with the deep rumbling of the trains passing along the tracks.  Our subject for the shoot was world boxing champion Wladimir Kitschko.

Arriving at the venue suited and booted he politely introduced himself to the handful of media people that were fortunate enough to be there to interview and photograph him.  He was the complete antithesis of what you would expect a boxer to be.

I was there to take photographs which would be published in The Sun on Sunday newspaper and be featured on the website to accompany the interview we did.

I have to confess that I was unexpectedly star struck by the 6’6″ boxing legend.  He was an absolute gentleman and a real pleasure to photograph (I did have to stand on my camera box to get closer to his eye level, as you can see our video man doing!) and as well as getting my kickboxing gloves signed I  got a massive cuddle!

Enjoy x
