Dominique Griffin’s Pro-Debut @ Gas Monkey | Dallas, TX

It's gonna be like the 12 days of Christmas for this fight, lol. I have enough pictures for each day leading up to the fight December 1st. Gonna be funny. Haven't done a marketing campaign like this before. It wasn't planned, I just had so many good photos from the photo session, I wanted to show them all. So, I will have to be a little creative, so they don't all look the same. Looking forward to it....

Not all the pictures, but all of the posters I’ve made from Reno

So, I have all kinds of photos from the USA Men's Boxing Olympic Trials in Reno, NV. It was way back in December 2015. I have made a few pages & groups on Facebook, but I haven't posted all the "Posters" that I have made anywhere yet. Especially, not on my website. These are all for sale at extremely reasonable prices. I am looking to have an online store up where people can just order them straight without having to contact me & arrange price & payment, blablabla. I am going to Colorado & Montana this summer & was going to come home to build the online store to sell some of those photos anyways. So, look for that coming in the future.

But, I really enjoyed this event & making all these posters.

Briargrove Ballerinas

Looking forward to taking some photos of an upcoming ballet recital @ Briargrove Elementary.  The only other ballerina that I have photographed is possibly the most famous in Houston; Lauren Anderson, she has her own day.  I didn't get to photograph her doing ballet, it was boxing & she is fierce!  

This upcoming event, I am looking forward to having the new Nikon D7200 & two new Yongnuo 660 flashes w/ controller.  I hope that it all arrives & I have a couple days to play with it before the recital!  Otherwise, I'll have to use good ol' trusty.  Some of my latest style photos I have really enjoyed making.  I have been using Gaussian blur with a wispy white vignette.  Not all of my photos show up on my website or even my social media, do to certain privacy requirements.  But, I have been pretty hard at work lately!  I have enjoyed doing one project at a time & being able to focus on each project a little more with a more personal touch in PS!  I am really looking forward to growing my business so that I can start shooting some architecture/realty photos.  I think that is where my PS skills will start to show, but I still need a "full-frame" camera to do it effectively, in my opinion.....sigh....someday SOON!

This photos below are from this late last summer, no flash, in a dark, 100 degree, boxing gym.  So it was pushing the camera to the limits.  But, I have a ton of great photos of Lauren.  Very thankful for the opportunity!  

If you want Elite Level Training, David Martinez is USA Boxing Certified.  Having spent many hot sweaty hours in the gym with him, traveled to Reno for the Olympic Trials to watch his fighter Jay Crenshaw try for his Olympic Dream; David is an amazingly dedicated trainer!  Elite amateurs, aspiring amateurs, just for fitness & Professional fighters are the game, Martinez Boxing is the game.

US Olympic Trials 2016 | Men’s Boxing

POSTERS!!

Welcome to my website!  These are some of the posters that I have created from the pictures that I took in Reno.  I do have a book that I have made that will be up for sale.  All these posters are for sale & are scaled to 20x30.  At the moment, I do sales over PayPal, safe & easy.  I hope that you enjoy them.

I have also made a Facebook Group to follow the careers of this Olympic Trials Cast.  Many are turning pro, if they haven't already.  So, they will be blowing through some early match-ups as they build up their professional resumes.  You can expect some great fights out of this group!

Golden Gloves Posters!

I am now posting & creating all the posters from the event. I have just about everyone’s fight, except for the early fights on Saturday. I missed a couple of the Sunday fights around the 28-32 bout range… I am posting them first to my Facebook.com/DownpourPromotion first, just because it is easier for me to share them & have people share them. I only have the bout sheets for the weekend, but I was there on Friday. So, if you know the names of any of the kids, let me know. I like to put their names on the photos. “Like” my Facebook page! I am trying to be all the local events that I can possibly make! I can come to your gym, help you with your social media, website & improve the look of your marketing. I also do a wide variety of photography, keep me in mind; wedding, real estate, boating sales, auto sales, business, portrait, events, etc. I LOVE to do it! Get in touch with me.

Jay Crenshaw Boxing Videos

Jay had a very disappointing Olympic Trials. That’s life, young man. There were a lot of win streaks that came to an end that week for a lot of fighters. Pick yourself up, you made it there. You will always have that, the rest of your life. There are plenty of wins in your future! I am looking forward to following Jay’s career.

Rocky Juarez told me the other day about Jay, “when Jay is on, I don’t think he could be beat,” “if Jay came to me & said he lost at “his best” I’d ask who it was that beat him, because he is going to be a future world champion.

Teofimo A. Lopez vs. Maliek Montgomery (not finals)

These are from the first match-up between these two earlier in the week.  There was three slips by Teofimo & Maliek was very active, it was a tough fight to judge.  Teofimo was very crisp & accurate.  Very exciting fight, I believe the other ring didn’t have a fight for one reason or another at the time, so all eyes were here (may be wrong about that).

Just Another Night Sparring with Martinez Boxing….

If you come to spar with one of Coach Martinez’s kids, you’re going to get some work done.  He has teamed up with #GabeBernal (strength & conditioning) to get these young aspiring fighters, elite amateurs into professional form as wells as getting them to world class stages.  Like the US Men’s Olympic Trials & the Junior National Championships in Reno, NV.  Dedication, fund raising, feeding, driving kids around, finding them jobs…I can’t promise that for every fighter, but those are just a few of the lengths that Coach Martinez has gone for his athletes.  You better be 100% committed, because he is 110% committed.

The lighting isn’t always the greatest for photography, but it is great for photography, haha.
