Battle at the Boat 123 (September 7, 2019)

What a great night of out at the Emerald Queen Casino as Brian Halquest Productions delivers on stellar night of fights. Andy Nance’s matchmaking is what really makes this one of the best shows in the Pacific Northwest. Every fight was competitive and had the crowd on their feet several times throughout the event.

Here’s a few of my selects of the action from ringside. Thank you NW Fightscene for having me out to shoot on your behalf.

Seattle Sounders FC SEAvNE (8-10-2019)

What a crazy game! From the Sounders being up, to being down and then pulling ahead again just to have the game end in a tie. But the most important part was that I broke my stupid monopod the night before and didn’t have the reach that my 400mm lens usually gives me. Looks like I’ll be visiting B&H to pick up a new one before the next match.

Here’s my selects from a bright sun shinny day at Century Link Field in Seattle, WA

From the fine folks at, Asgard503

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…

2019 Crazy Monkey Kettlebell Competition

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.

Seattle Majestics vs SD Surge 5-4-2019

Saturday night saw the Seattle Majestics come out swinging and for the first time in team history, beat the powerhouse San Diego Surge 22-10! Just like in life, it’s all about small steps and being a little better today than you were yesterday. Today the Majestic were the best they’ve ever been with all aspects of the team firing on all cylinders! It was an impressive win!

And now it’s time for the playoff’s!! I can’t wait to see where this team goes in the post season!!
