Like most of you out there in (at least) your thirty’s, I discovered karate through late-night movies with Bruce Lee. Yes, I know, it sounds very cliche, but that’s the truth and nothing but the truth! Haha! Unfortunately, my parents were the kind of people who didn’t think much of karate and in a communist country it seemed almost impossible to practice. Fast forward to lots of years later when I met my husband… and found out that he has been practicing Shotokan since he was 16 and loves it to pieces. Needless to say that I joined in. We had some comes and goes and changes in our life, but we’ve always returned to it.
When Sensei David Jones from the NE Shotokan Dojo asked me to photograph his team and do some creatives for his dojo, I was over the moon with excitement! I took the session outside and combined this super talented team with the glorious colors of nature and… ta-dam! We got some amazing photos that I’m very happy to share with you.
