Here are some photos from a recent trip to the snow in Sequoia National Park with the acrobatic group Aerial Experience. It was great to enjoy the snow with a group, who were mostly from the temperate Southern California area. It also made me excited for my upcoming trip to Pennsylvania for Christmas. Aerial Experience is a group that I shoot for that provides elite acrobatic entertainment for various organizations around the world. It is always amazing to see the things they can do and the shows they conceive.
The World Arm Wrestling League (WAL) has all the bravado of professional wrestling with the same competitive legitimacy of UFC. I arrived for WAL's annual championship held at The Orleans in Las Vegas. My main focus was on the British competitor "Mighty" Paul Maiden and his recent comeback from a life threatening illness. On the first day I setup a backdrop in the wrestler registration area for to do some portraits. On the second and third day I mostly focused on the competition and doing one light portraits around the arena. The whole event was such a blast to shoot and filled with so many interesting competitors.
