My blog has been suffering due to the fact that I have been so busy lately. Here are some photos I took while on the set of CNN during the Western Republican Presidential debate held here in Las Vegas. There promises to be lots of political activity in Las Vegas because of its swing state status and how much the economy has effected the city.
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.
