Repton Boxing Club is the oldest boxing gym in the country. It is housed in an atmospheric former Victorian bath house off Brick Lane.
With its retro look and feel, unchanged in over half a century, it is like walking onto a movie set from the middle of the last century. The Club has been used as a location for movies, such has Guy Richie's Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels.
The club has an electric energy and atmosphere that you feel as soon as you walk through the door.
We have exclusive use of Repton to shoot some boxers during a training session. Here the types of images we will be aiming for:
In addition to Repton boxers we will have fitness models who we will work with to create sport editorial style portraits.

The combination of the unique venue, plus real boxers and a sports model will facilitate loads of opportunities for stunning shots. You will have the opportunity to photograph fast action boxing and training as well as sports and fitness editorial portrait photography.
Our aim is to get you taking photos that could be in the sports section of newspapers or high quality editorial content in magazines.
We will use a mixture of natural light and our own lighting.
There will be several set ups that you can photograph and you will spend time in different parts of the club, with different boxers and lighting to get a variety of images.
36exp staff will be on hand to assist as required.
This photography session takes place on Friday 27th September at Repton Boxing Club, off Brick Lane, from 9am until 1pm.
Places are limited.
