I'm not a resolution guy, I don't think that a new year means a new start. I try to take every day as its own. However, during this particular 365 days, I took some images. Here are my fave images from 2017, along with a little backstory for some of them. I hope you enjoy. Here's to 2018. Here's to today.
PS. If you like what you see and would like to hire me to shoot your event, your pro wrestling show, your fight camp, your portrait, etc...please contact me. I look forward to creating with you.
Cris Cyborg for a Bleacher Report article with Jonathan Snowden. I wanted to show Cris in a different light than how we usually see her. I was hopeful she would be open to a few things, but to my pleasant surprise, she was completely down for everything and was very excited to see how the images turned out.
Beach training with Luke Rockhold during his fight camp in Florida for David Branch.
A quiet moment for Stephen Thompson before his attempt to become the UFC welterweight champion. However, Tyron Woodley kept his belt, and gave me this shot as he left the cage victorious.
Canelo Alvarez giving me the beautiful sweat flying shots we all hope to capture, as he cruised his way to a victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Getting the text that I would be in the building for Mayweather v McGregor was probably one of the best texts I've ever received. Even just being there for weigh in would almost have been enough. It was one of those evenings where it went by so fast, it's hard to fully soak in the moment. It was still hard to believe it was happening until the opening bell rang. In the end, I think all the fans left satisfied, both fighters left handsomely rewarded, and even into 2018 we are asking, Rematch?
The entrances for Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero, before their fight at UFC 213. Whittaker would go on to defeat Romero and become the interim UFC middleweight champion.
The final UFC event of 2017 gave us Cris Cyborg defeating Holly Holm to retain her featherweight title and solidify herself as the baddest woman on the planet.
