Sword throw!


So last week, I was assigned by the good folks at the National to go shoot 18 year old Hazza Sulaiman al Shehhi set a Guiness record at sword throwing. Sword throwing is a traditional art and the Al Saif Traditional Sword competition is organised in Fujairah to celebrate it. It was a fun afternoon where I photographed swordsmen, the record setting throw and a horror house! The shot of the teenager throwing his sword 21 metres appeared on the front page of the National.. yay! Here are some images from the assignment.
