Grid League Photo Gallery – Los Angeles Reign in Alameda

Yep, lots of Grid photos on the blog lately! And there will be a few more galleries after this from the playoff and championship week as well. This gallery is from the Los Angeles match where they played San Francisco on the Fire’s home turf in Nor Cal.

Grid League Photo Gallery – DC Brawlers in Anaheim

The DC Brawlers took the NPGL championship in 2014, and it looks like they may take it again in 2015, so it’s always an honor to shoot their matches! Here are 35 of my best shots from their race against the New York Rhinos from the Fit Expo in Anaheim, California a few weeks ago.

Grid League Photo Gallery – San Francisco Fire in Anaheim

This past weekend I was hired on by the NPGL to shoot photos at their four-match weekend, so as usual I have a photo gallery from each match I shot!

The way the Grid League photographers work is we each shoot an assigned team, so this gallery features the San Francisco Fire from their victorious match against the Miami Surge.

2015 CrossFit Games Photos

Last month I had the opportunity to shoot photos at the 2015 CrossFit Games for Pure Pharma, and I had a great time shooting their incredible athletes!

CrossFit HQ doesn’t allow photographers to post their own photos, so here are 30 shots of mine that Pure Pharma posted on their Instagram account.

Athletes include: Brooke Ence, Scott Panchik, Chad Mackay, Rasmus Andersen, Kristin Holte, Joe Scalli, Team Invictus, the Dutch CrossFit team, and the CrossFit Turicum team.

If you missed it or just want to look again, here’s the link to my gallery of 2015 CrossFit Regionals photos.

2015 CrossFit Games Regionals Photos

Last month I had the opportunity to shoot photos at the 2015 CrossFit Games Central and California Regionals on behalf of Pure Pharma, and I had a blast shooting their incredible athletes!

Athletes include: Brooke Ence, Wes Piatt, Scott Panchik, Julie Foucher, Rasmus Andersen, and Team Invictus

Grid League Photo Gallery – Baltimore Anthem in San Jose

I recently had the opportunity to shoot for NPGL again, so this is the first of four photo galleries I’ll be posting from the opening week of the 2015 Grid League season that went down in San Jose, California.

Baltimore-Anthem-NPGL-San-Jose-02

This gallery features the Baltimore Anthem team from their match against the New York Rhinos.

The highlight for me was getting to photograph Olympic weightlifting medalist Dmitry Klokov in his first ever professional Grid match. What a freakin’ beast!

Introducing My New Podcast – The Expansion Project

I couldn’t be happier to share this with you guys! After many months of thinking, learning, planning, and executing, I have launched a podcast that is available on iTunes and Stitcher.

Thumbnail
The Expansion Project is just that—a project based on the idea of expanding. Expanding what exactly? My mind, and myself as a person. It’s also a way for me to do something fun and creative while delivering free content to the world that will hopefully help to motivate and inspire other people.

I plan to release an new episode every week, so please subscribe and help spread the word by telling a friend or sharing a link on your social networks.

Eight episodes are already available. The first is a simple introduction, and the others are interviews and conversations with professional BMX riders, a coach, business owners and entrepreneurs, an artist, and an author. Download one or all of them and please let me know what you think! Any feedback or criticism is welcomed and appreciated!

You can learn more about The Expansion Project from the podcast’s dedicated Web site (theexpansionprojectpodcast.com), and of course please subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher, give five starts, and leave reviews!

2014 Reebok CrossFit Games – Photos for PurePharma

Photo by @FatTonyBMX | ©PurePharma

Throughout the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games season I had the opportunity to shoot the Regionals, Games, and Invitational for PurePharma. With the 2015 CrossFit Open starting this week I thought it would be a good time to reflect back on some of the moments I captured last year that have been posted on the PurePharma Instagram feed… Here’s to another kickass Games season! Good luck to everyone!

CrossFit Photos – Gabriel Grobben at CrossFit Long Beach (Round 2)

Around this time last year I shot some photos of my good friend, training partner, and coach Gabe Grobben at our gym. By pure coincidence we ended up playing around with a few shots and movements almost exactly a year later. Here’s the second round of studio style photos of Coach G at CrossFit Long Beach
