Recent photos of I took of Brad Tavares, UFC fighter, for RDX Sports. RDX is a UK based company that makes sports equipment and apparel. Tavares fights in the middleweight division, competed in Ultimate Fighter #11 and is from Hawaii. The photos are going to be used in online and print advertising. The photos were taken inside the Randy Couture Gym here in Las Vegas. The photos were taken on a white background using one light.
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.
