    This weekend sucks. I had to shoot this....

    Tonight was brutal...........







    Background Flash started overheating a bit and loosing its juice.


    Here is one of the fighters. Not as good as the chicks huh. Here is one of the changes to the plan, some guys brought in the shittyest shop lights and my flashes were out. Video time.....Flexible right?



    Another busy weekend. Weigh Ins and bikini contest at a bar tonight. As usual nothing went quite as planned and being flexible was the rule. Saturday is a basketball clinic with "Jimmer" Fredette, then Sat. night fights. But the fights are a 16 man winner takes all elimination tournament reminiscent of "Blood Sport". Sunday I guess I get a rest. For some reason I like to to things in marathon style spurts of activity. Nothing ever seems to go even as far as work. I have never shot basketball and probably know less about that sport than I do about centipedes. I will see if skill out weighs experience? Or maybe it will be the other way around? We shall see.
