Neil BEDFORD c/o MAKING PICTURES photographed boxing pro Joe Maphosa during his British Boxing series. The shoot took place on location in Stockton and North Yorkshire Moors. “As an amateur, I was selected to box for the Team GB Olympic boxing team leading up to Rio 2016 and traveled the world to places like Germany, Turkey and Finland, boxing for my county and learning the trade at the highest level.”
Neil Bedford likes to leave very little to chance. He plans his shoots down to the last detail and is meticulous in conducting research and gathering reference material. Born and raised in Bradford, he still splits his time between his hectic South London base and the peace and quiet of Yorkshire where he finds it easier to plan upcoming projects.
