Charles "the Sniper" Penner is Canada's Top Combative Sports Event Photographer and has been involved in the MMA scene for over 9 years. Working as a Combat Sport Event Photographer since 2008 and also as a Commission consultant and Chief Inspector.

While there are a lot of amateur Photographers or "MMA News Photographers" showing up to events and shooting for free, very few of them have the ability, skill, knowledge and equipment to shoot your event professionally. (There is a reason they don't charge for their time or "finished product", with missed KOs, blurry movement, and galleries filled with missed strikes and NO action/emotion)
Your show costs tens of thousands of dollars but you'll settle for a free "photographer" who gets a handful of lucky shots at an event with HUNDREDS of strikes? Hire a Professional and promote your future shows with HUNDREDS of exciting shots and exposure from many MMA websites that only a Professional Photographer can get you!
-Media shots edited and sent out 30-40min after an event
-The 1st to post "Teaser" albums 1-2hrs later
-Full albums the day after event
-500+ QUALITY shots*, like actual connections and KOs
-Promotion watermarks and images with Sponsor's logos thoughtfully captured with the action!
-Photos provided to all your fighters and their fans, this means they get viewed and shared 1000's or more times! and not only if a fighter buys them from the amateur photographers website.
-Professional/personal connections with industry leaders (See below)

CombatCaptured has the experience to work with Commissions and run your weigh-in, including directing fighters to get the best shots. Working with your video crew to produce images for "Tale of the tape" and other graphics in minimal time for next day coverage. Capturing Fighter posed shots for future promotional material including posters and DVD overlays.

From Press conference and Weigh-in images to Fight and After Fight coverage, No one covers the action better.
