It’s always a lovely surprise when I get care packages from the homies around the way. Huge thank you to, Michael Ciochon, who sent up up some of the new gear from his Portland, OR based Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gear and lifestyle brand, Asgard503. Wanting to mix it up a bit from the last shoot, I got a hold of one of my old kickboxing student and talked her to meeting me at 11pm to do a little shadowboxing in the middle of the street. Totally a normal thing, I swear. Here’s a few of my favorite shots from the night…
This last weekend I had the privilege of shooting the 2019 International Kettlebell Organization USA National Championship hosted by Crazy Monkey USA for the 3rd straight year. This has quickly became one of my highlights of the summer. Not only do these athletes train like animals, but they also leave it all on the platform. It’s awesome to see the athletes putting in work. Many competed for the first time and others broke personal records. Overall with, Saiko Shima-Kolesar taking the lead, this is one of he best organized events I’ve ever shot with everything running like clockwork!
Here’s a few of my faves from this years comp.
Always humbled to be brought in on projects such as this. My long time friend, Dan Dejos hired me about 4 years ago to shoot for Ivan Salaverry to launch their new website. A couple weeks ago he brought me back out to shoot for their website refresh. Hoping we'll get to do it again in another 4 years! Hahaha
