Grid League Photo Gallery – DC Brawlers Win the 2015 NPGL Championship

For the second year in a row I was assigned by the NPGL to shoot the DC Brawlers during the League’s year-end championship match, and for the second year in a row DC won. Coincidence? I don’t think so…

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.

Announcing My Newest Business Endeavor and Passion Project: BreakParallel.com

About a year ago I had the idea to start an aggregate website in the functional fitness industry similar to what I ran in the BMX world for so many years. As a fan of CrossFit and functional fitness I never found a place online where I could see all the best videos, keep up the industry news, and see cool photos on a regular basis, and I knew that some day someone would fill that void. I also knew I had the potential to fill it, but honestly at that time I didn’t want to start a company that would force me into a full-time job. However, after mulling over it for months and telling a few friends in the industry about my idea I finally was in the right mental space to bite the bullet and commit to the project.

Break-Parallel
In February of this year I met a friend based in Austin, Texas, named Jarret Schienman who I partnered with to start the site. Jarret and I have done a lot of work on the back end of the site to get us to this point, and we were happy to officially go live one day before the 2015 CrossFit Games started.

As the Editor I’ve been working every day since then to keep the site updated, and recently we brought on another good friend of mine from the East Coast named Jordan Samuel as a third partner and associate editor.

BreakParallel.com is now up and running and the three of us are really excited to see where the company takes us. We have big goals and plans, so be on the lookout!

If you’re into fitness or just want to help us out, please click on the site and take a look around. If you like what you see it would really mean a lot to me if you shared it with a friend or on your social networks!

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

Grid Photos – DC Brawlers Win 2014 NPGL Championship

Last night I shot photos of the DC Brawlers for the NPGL as they won the first ever Grid League championship match against the San Francisco Fire. It was a close race that got super heated, and emotions were flying all over the place.

It was an honor to be involved with the NPGL during its inception this year and I can’t wait to see how the sport evolves in the future…

Here are 35 of my favorite shots from the 2014 NPGL Championship!
