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....
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.

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.
