Daniel Herbertson's pictures are raw. But they are not raw in the gritty, film grainy black and white sense of raw - the type you usually see with a lot of 'moody' MMA photography. Instead Daniel's photos are super bright, neon glowing, manga-esque explosions of colour. They strongly echo the culture and 'scapes that surround his adopted city - Tokyo, Japan.
For today's expert photographer gallery, let me introduce you to the world according to top MMA photographer Daniel Herbertson...
Kazuhiro Nakamura after getting choked out by Kazuo Misaki.
Hiroyuki Takaya after TKO'ing Hideo Tokoro.
Kazushi Sakuraba after kneebarring Zelg Galesic.
Cain Velasquez KO'ing Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.
To see more of Daniel's portfolio, I thoroughly suggest you visit his website. Aussie-born Daniel pretty much covers all the big action happening in Japan for MMAfighting.com and you can follow his journey on his twitter account (@danherbertson) and blog.
Finally I would like to thank Matt Benyon from Scramble and The Grappling Dummy for pointing me towards Daniel's work.
