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…

Grid League Photo Gallery – San Francisco Fire at the 2015 NPGL Playoffs

Back in September I had the opportunity to shoot the San Francisco Fire in their NPGL playoff match against the Phoenix Rise. I haven’t been able to go through the photos until just recently, so chalk this gallery up to the “better late than never” category and enjoy!

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!

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!

NPGL Miami Pre Season Tournament Photo Gallery

After shooting the Las Vegas Combine for the National Pro Grid League I had the opportunity to travel to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, to shoot the NPGL’s inaugural draft pick and the League’s first ever pre season tournament. It was really cool to see the teams transform and morph over the few short weeks between the Combine and the Draft, and the racing that took place was absolutely incredible. I see a ton of potential in Grid, and I’m really looking forward to seeing where this new sport goes!

Here are 30 of my favorite photos from the week…

Last week I posted 50 photos from the NPGL Las Vegas Combine, and this week I have another 30 images… The difference this week is that all of these shots feature the hottest girls on the Grid. Make no mistake though, each of these beauties are absolute beasts! Top-notch athleticism with great looks…how can you go wrong?

2014 NPGL Las Vegas Combine Photo Gallery

Earlier this year I decided to branch out from my BMX roots and start shooting photos of other things I enjoy and that I am passionate about, and one of those things was fitness. After exploring a few angles and doing a little grunt work here and there I landed an incredible gig shooting for a brand new professional sports origination called National Pro Grid League, or NPGL. (Note: At the time I got connected with them it was still National Pro Fitness League, or NPFL.)

In their words, “Grid is the world’s first professional spectator sport with co­ed teams that compete in athletics racing. It’s a mainstream sporting league that is fan, TV, and sponsor friendly. Each two­-hour match features two 10­-person teams (5 men, 5 women, one of each being over 40 years old) going head to head in 11 fast races. Grid races are easy to follow and are played with preset rules and unlimited substitutions designed to force teams to strategize. Grid has eight teams operating in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Miami and San Francisco.”

I shot Grid League’s Las Vegas combine a few weeks ago where 200 hopefuls were competing in several matches throughout the week with their sights set on becoming a professional athlete. It was an extremely compelling event, and it was truly an honor to shoot so many top competitors.

I had been following The League online and through podcasts for a while, and I see big things in the future for the sport. To me it is one of those things that I look at and feel like it just makes sense on so many levels, so I’m incredibly thankful to be a small part of the it all so early on in its inception, and I hope to continue to work with them in their inaugural season.

After sifting through more than 15,000 photos that I shot over the course of three days I managed to pick 50 of my favorites to share here including Lindsey Valenzuela, Kenny Leverich, Andrea Ager, Noah Ohlsen, Rita Benavidez, Kristan Clever, Alessandra Pichelli, Jeremy Kinnick, Matt Aikin, and more…
