I was a little nervous the first time I hopped into the autonomous driving Audi designed by Delphi. A crew from Delphi and I traveled around the streets of Las Vegas as the car and its self driving computer system navigated the streets. It was a pretty smooth transition and I quickly found myself trusting the car. I was told that the car had successfully traveled thousands of miles and had only been in a few accidents, non of which were its fault. It was a pretty exciting look of about ten years into the future.
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.
