Andrew 'No Fear' Hillhouse

I saw Andrew walking down Dene St in Newcastle last year and just knew that I had to ask him if I could take his portrait. Not knowing how to approach such a fierce looking massive individual I just thought sod it and shouted "Big Man" at him. To my relief and his amusement he agreed to pose for me. It turned out that he was fighting in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena that night in a cage fighting tournament. Not only was Andrew a really cool bloke to talk to we later met up in his home city of Glasgow at the Griphouse Gym where he trains. I was introduced to a number of other fighters and enjoyed a full day taking more photos of some very interesting people.
