|Blitz photographer, Charlie Suriano, capturing karate at 12 frames per second...|
This is the third photo shoot I've done for Blitz magazine, and the second done at the dojo; the first was a studio shoot done at Charlie's place in Melbourne about ten years ago...wow, how time fly's! On average somewhere around 800+ photos are taken over a six hour period; it's a difficult process and keeping track of what images have been captured, and what images are yet to be caught, requiers some concentration; a story board is therfore essential if you want to avoid duplication and wasting time.

I am grateful to my student, John Mercer, for taking the time out of his busy schedule to act as my partner. It was also great to catch up with Ben and Charlie and spend time in their company again...we always make these occassions a fun day! Oh, and before I forget....the photos you see here were taken on the previous shoot in the old dojo. I did manage to bring my camera into the dojo the on this visit too....but then forgot to use it! I know, I know...what am I like?
