I got to shoot my first amateur MMA/Kickboxing event last night.
Going through the photos last night, I have a great shot of a fighter after the break in between rounds. The really bad lighting worked really well to create a dramatic scene of him walking to his corner. I edited the photo and posted it to my FB and instagram only to look at it from a different perspective, and notice he has a rather big swastika tattoo intermingled in a design that wasn't apparent right away to me. I deleted the photo from my personal pages and am not sure exactly what to do with his photos.
I 100% do not support the hate that the swastika represents, but I was hired to cover the event. Do I overlook it as It's not my place since I'm only hired to take the photos? Do I just delete/crop the photos showing his tattoo? And do I even bother to explain my stance to the promotion? I just would not want anything with my name attached to it to be used in any connection to that kind of lifestyle.
Has anyone came across an issue like this?
Thanks for looking and for any advice you may have.
I'd be happy to share it here to give you all a better idea or the image/fighter.
