Some recent photos from the Growth Summit for an advertorial in Fortune Magazine. I photographed the corporate event at the JW Marriott in Summerlin. The magazine asked me to focus on the attendees and their interaction during the days events. The daylong event taught attendees the value of management and how to be financially successful. The photos are featured in the magazine and will be used in other materials to promote the summit.
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.
