I recently had the opportunity to take photos backstage at the World MMA Awards for Fighters Only Magazine. I was contracted to shoot photos of the winners and presenters on a white backdrop. I was able to meet a whole host of folks associated with the world of MMA. The seventh annual event took place at the Venetian here in Las Vegas.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
