In The Picture: William Burkhardt

My name is William Burkhardt, I am French and I am 22 years old. I moved to Brazil 2 years ago to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and become a black belt. In September 2009, as I returned to Brazil from a visit to my family, my dad offered me a Canon 5D Mark II (and a 28-70mm lens), my first professional camera. I started taking pictures at my gym in Brazil and soon enough at all jiu-jitsu tournaments I would take part in. Thanks to my teacher Fernando Boi, world jiu-jitsu champion and well know in the jiu-jitsu community, I managed to enter as a credited photographer in bigger tournaments such as the World Pro Cup Trials and Shooto Brazil. For the moment, I am only taking this pictures as a hobby in the hope of making it a job. You can find William via his Facebook page. Thanks William for the excellent pictures. If you are a (hobby) photgrapher and think your work has got what it takes to appear on the TotallyCoolPix home page please contact us.
