Here are some photos I recently took for Benefits Selling Magazine of Rebecca Purdy. The art director wanted the photos to be taken in the middle of the desert showing her burying the bad economy. Similar to the way the mob buries a dead body in the middle of the desert. It was a lot of fun and the photos looked great with the layout.
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.
