PFC 9

Saturday night, Prospect Fighting Championships put on a great card. I had the opportunity to hang out and shoot the event.  Great pictures and great people.

Fitness Shoot with Sara

Sara was the last customer I had at the old studio. We had shot together before while working with VVV Fight Co. Sara is a blue belt in BJJ under Topp Performance. Sara wanted to show off her strong, maintainable, athletic physique. So has a good combination of muscle, cardio and flexibility.

Great v shape.

Athlete / Trainer Derick Mitchell

Trainer Derick Mitchell came into the studio for some fitness photos and to show off his crazy athleticism. He had an incredible combination of strength, flexibility and motion. We got some really dynamic shots and plan on more shoots in the future. Derick is a super high energy guy who worked hard in the high heat. Here's a quick look at a couple night of pictures.

Super flexible

Fighter Pictures with Frank

Frank is a member at Warrior's Boxing and Fitness, where my studio is located and he wanted some simple fighter pictures for his social media. So I went out into the gym and we shot some of him working the heavy bag. Frank really hits the bag hard and there were a lot of frames of him bending the bag.

Women's Fitness with Courtney

Courtney, a figure competitor came in the day after her competition. She won both of the categories she was entered in that day. We got lots of images showing off the physique she worked so hard for.

Sparring at Warriors' Boxing and Fitness

I went down to Warriors Boxing and Fitness this morning to shoot some sparring so I can get my timing back for next weekend's show. I wasn't going to go, but I kicked my ass and went down there. I had a chance encounter with Alysha Sopoco and she gave me some great kicking pictures. In addition there were a lot of people at sparring this morning. Thanks to everyone who was out.
