New Addition: Raven Cliffs

January 28, 2010

While hiking up through the trails of the Raven Cliffs, Ryan Tyrl and I stopped at three different falls to photograph. I have been very fortunate to own and love my 5D MII so I decided to shoot and record HD video with two lenses: 16-35mm and a 70-200mm both uniquely made for an interesting point of view. I will be working on the next two falls video clips to complete this multimedia movie of the Raven Cliff Falls, just north of Helen, Ga.

I don’t know if this is over the board but I went ahead and uploaded my Raven Cliffs video to Dailymotion.com and Vimeo.com. I have accounts to all three video sources but I wanted to really see a difference between the three as far as quality. You be the judge and leave a comment to which of the three you like the best… unfortunately there is a lose of quality regardless of the three. Anyways it was fun making the video and I will be at it some more!

Kimbo Slice In Rome, Ga

January 26, 2010

What a great and exciting night! The Forum in Rome, Ga was packed to a Sold Out crowd on Saturday January 24th.

The place was full of screaming MMA fans from all over the region. I couldn’t believe how popular this sport has become in Rome. I of course never been to a Rome fight, so for being my first, it was electrifying to see such a turn out!

I had my friend Josh Kelley, a fellow photography graduate, to come out and shoot with me. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for him as he is a great sport photographer quick to the action and he also, conveniently, lives out here in Rome, Ga. What a chance for him to feel the excitement of shooting such an intense sport. In addition, a great perk about having full access is that we get to meet and get pictures taken with these huge super stars like Special Guest KIMBO SLICE!

Here is an action shot taken by Josh Kelley… GREAT SHOT Buddy!!
From what I saw from his camera, he took some amazing shots. I can’t wait to see them on the big screen! I’m looking forward to shooting with him again.

Exposure Through Out The Sport

January 21, 2010

Recently I’ve been working with Sponsored Fan Atlanta. I’ve shot a handful of fighters for their profile images and its been great exposure for my work. I’ve recently created a fight video for Tex Johnson and now people are not only viewing it on FaceBook, Vimeo, DailyMotion, WordPress, but also on Sponsored Fan website. A portrait of Byron Bloodworth profile was posted on the NextMMAFighter.com website. This can only push me to the next level and continue to create more videos for the fans!

These two fighters will be part of the main & co-main event for the Battle of Rome VIII in Rome, Ga this weekend… January 24th at the Forum.

Come see undefeated Byron Bloodworth (Hard Knox & Team Roberto Traven) Vs also undefeated from X3Sports John Quiroz.
What a night to see!!!!!

This going to be a great fight night… When I heard it was going to be in Rome, Ga., I thought of my fellow graduate friend, Josh Kelley. After graduation Josh moved back north to Rome, Ga. This will hopefully open up an opportunity for Josh to shoot some exciting & extreme MMA action.

Tex Johnson Fight Video

Tex Johnson MMA Fight Video
Uploaded by nabphotos. – Check out more sports and extreme sports videos.

On December 18th 2009, Tex Johnson fought 24 year old Johnny Buck at Will Bill’s. It was a record win of 13 seconds for Tex. As a favor, I created this fight promo video for him and Team Sponsored Fan. Lisa Cave met me at Wild Bill’s for a great night of MMA fights as they hosted a Charity Event- Toy’s For Tots. Lisa helped me by being my second shooter. She did a great job and was able to get a couple awesome shots that fit well in the video and deserved credit. Thanks again Lisa for all your help!

In this image, Lisa captured a moment full of detail and great lighting exposure… definitely my favorite. I love how all the dust is flying through the air and you can see one of the judges on the bottom right corner watching with great intensity as Tex is getting ready to enter the ring.
