Dominate FC II

After fight week in Chicago leading up to Glory 58 last Friday, I had just enough time to head straight back to work for Dominate FC II at the Tacoma Dome. Literally worked all night Friday till the shuttle took me to the airport at 5am. I had just enough time to make it all work out. Like I had about a 3 hour nap on the flight and I was still wearing the same cloths from the night before cause there wasn’t enough time to make it home before I need to show up to the venue. Hahah. I was originally planning on going to be back in Europe, but due to a few “technical” difficulties, I came home instead. Thankfully so, because DFC II was epic! I had an Allstar team made up of Abbie Parr, David Craig, Heidi Marshall, Doug Hills and Hannah Mootz on task to hold down the fort for me. Everyone of them absolutely crushed it. Proud of how these 5 strangers (at the time) that I threw into the mix for the first time came together and ran things like the professionals they are!!

Only 2 shows in and Dominate FC is already the premier show in the south end. Showcasing only the best of the best amateurs, and incredibly talented up and coming professionals alongside WSOF and UFC veterans. Here’s a few of my selects from the night of action.

Glory 58 Chicago

It’s been a wild week with the crew at Glory Kickboxing. Starting fight week off in Germany, I made my way out to the Windy City to get in some more work with my mentor and Glory’s Chief Photographer, James Law. Along the way, I was informed that I wouldn’t be allowed back in to the EU for 3 months, so had to call a few audibles on the fly and head home to Seattle after the show. Oh, and I forgot my computer on the plane, and it’s still MIA. So that sucks. But all in all, It was all worth it in the end. Onto fight week, It’s always a fantastic time working with such a good human being in James Law who pushes me to do some new and wild things behind the camera. Not to mention the rest of the ops staff that’s welcomed me into the fold. Grateful for the people who have entrusted me with getting the shots.

Here’s a few of my selects from my time in Chicago.

Seattle Majestics

This last Saturday I was able to join up with the Seattle Majestics for their 2017 season home opener at French Field in Kent, WA.  I knew this was going to be a blast simply cause it's Football, but I had no idea how wrapped up I would become in the energy and pure emotion coming off the sideline.  These ladies are in a class of their own.  The dedication they have to their teammates and passion for the game is what makes for some of the epic sports stories of we see in Hollywood today.  And that's not to mention the incredible hits, and big plays that one comes to expect from the gridiron.

This was the first time I shot football in a little over a year, so this game was more about shaking off that rust and getting back into the rhythm of things.  I can't wait to get back out there next week to see these athletes back in action!!!

Here's a few highlights from Seattle's, 24-21 win over a game Portland Fighting Shockwave on April 8th, 2017.

WSOFNYC, New Year's in the Big Apple

Here's the highlights from my trip weekend to NYC to shoot World Series of Fighting with Ryan Loco ( at the famed Madison Square Garden on New year's Eve.  I'm in your debt for all the support my friend!  It was a great time exploring and mostly getting lost in the Subway with my homie David Craig who worked as Ryan's Digital Tech.  I may have possibly fallen in love with the big apple!  

WSOF 33!!!

This latest adventure took me on the road to meet up with the man himself, Ryan Loco in Kansas City, MO for a stellar lineup of fights at the beautiful Municipal Auditorium for World Series of Fighting 33.  On a side note, that venue is a piece of history and anyone who has the opportunity visit the Auditorium, should do so. Below are a few of my favorite shots from the studio session, behind the scenes an a few highlights from cageside.   

I really can't thank enough for the constant support you've shown me, Ryan!

Much love Homie!!  


Seattle Sounders at Portland Timbers

What a great day for some MLS soccer in the PNW!  This was my first time out shooting soccer of any sort and I gotta say, I'm hooked!  Now talk about a rivalry every bit as intense as you can imagine from the Northwest powerhouses. From the rather small section the Sounders Supporters had, they sure didn't hold back and made their voices heard throughout the stadium.  In the end, the Sounders had a rough day of it. By the end of the first half they found them selves being shut down four to nada.  Though Seattle made a valiant effort with two scores in the second half, Portland held their lead to take this battle in the war that is, Seattle vs. Portland.

WSOF 32!!!

This last weekend I was invited by WSOF photographer Ryan Loco to come out and get weird at World of Series of Fighting 32!  Who could say no to that...  It was a great night filled with outstanding fights.   I gotta say though, on a personal note, getting to shoot with someone who's work has been an inspiration to me ever since I started on this journey, was a pretty surreal experience. Here's my favorite shots from World Series of Fighting 32!

Selects from Super Fight League 50

This last saturday night I found myself at the Fight Capital of the Northwest, The Emerald Queen Casino with Michale Renouard of to cover Super Fight League 50, America Team Challenge: Seattle vs. LA. Tasked with taking photo of the action, Mike did his thing bring the PNW the in-depth coverage of of the fights that he's known for.  Here's my favorite shots from another awesome night of action packed fights, and one former NFL Star and UW Husky Legend, Tony Parrish!!!

 Here's to another outstanding night of high quality MMA promoted by Brian Halquist Productions!  I already can't wait til the next Super Fight League card is announced for October!!

Picks from Reign FC

Saturday night I spent the night at Reign FC on behalf of  And what a great night of fights it was!  Promoted by StrikeForce and UFC vet, Bristol Marunde, the match making was on point.  Top notch action from the first fight of the night from Amateur Tim Hatten with a 38 second KO, to the 3, 5min round battle that got the crowd on their feet, for both the antics and the skill on display between United Training Center's Rico Rough and Jake Blaski out of Cageworx MMA.  I'm already looking forward to the their next show at the Clearwater Casino on September 3rd.
