The past two seasons I have worked as the unit photographer for the CW Network show "Penn & Teller: Fool Us." My main job is to do performance and behind the scenes photos. Fool Us is a magic based competition television show in which magicians perform tricks in front of Penn & Teller, if they cannot figure out how the trick was done, the magicians who performed it win a trip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn & Teller's show at the Rio Hotel & Casino.
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.
