Here are some recent photos I took for the Wall Street Journal about construction defect laws. I traveled to a home builder and someone who was directly affected by construction defects to get both perspectives. "Lawmakers in several states, led by Nevada, are moving to rein in construction-defect laws, a change that would curtail allegedly frivolous litigation but also make it more difficult for homeowners with legitimate claims to sue home builders over flaws."
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.
