Martial Arts

Action Shots

USK Martial Arts, a renowned martial arts studio, needed high-quality promotional photos to enhance their website. They wanted images that would capture the intensity and skill of their training, as well as the personal connection between instructors and students. To meet this need, I provided a comprehensive photo session that included both in-action shots and stylized headshots.

During the shoot, we set up various scenes to capture “candid” moments of the instructors performing martial arts techniques. These well-planned shots were designed to look natural and dynamic. Additionally, we took stylized headshots to showcase the instructors’ professionalism and dedication. The client was thrilled with the results, particularly the action shots. One of these photos was also licensed for use as a vinyl-wrap on their summer program bus, creating a mobile advertisement that turned heads. The photos were also prominently featured in their program brochures and on their website, driving a significant increase in new class enrollments.
