Tim Cloniger, Superintendent of The Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, recently devised a plan to reduce irrigation by 40% at the course. This is no small feat in the desert where water conservation is an important goal. We met early in the morning for the shoot and drove around the very scenic course for the photos. I used one strobe with a beauty dish. It was nice to visit one of Las Vegas' best golf course.
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.
