I met former U.S. Air Force drone operator Michael Haas in Indian Springs, NV, just outside the gates of Creech AFB. Creech is where a big portion of the US's drone program takes place and it is located in a remote section of Nevada. Haas and other former operators have recently come forward to denounce the program they have called "morally outrageous." We drove around the town and took photos at various spots that had something to do with the base.
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.
