After my summer in Reno I finally got around to updating my portfolio. Here are a few of my favorite images.
Little Leaguers wait for the Aces starting players to come out of the dugout at Aces Ballpark in Reno, Nev., Friday, June 1, 2012.
Larry Gunter, of Havik Skwod, hugs one of his coaches before his fight against Isaiah Wright, of Sektion 8 Fight Team, during Ultimate Reno Combat 34 at the Grand Sierra Resort Friday, June 30, 2012. Wright won the fight with a knockout.
Jason Miller, of Lance Creek, Wyo., wrestles a steer to the ground in 11.5 seconds during the steer wrestling section of the Reno Rodeo at the Reno Rodeo Arena Sunday, June 17, 2012.
Reno fire fighters exchange water during a fire in Sun Valley on Chocolate Drive that destroyed two mobile homes Sunday, June 17, 2012.
I was able to try my hand at shooting Mixed Martial Arts on Friday, June 29, 2012. Ultimate Reno Combat 34 was held at the Grand Sierra Resort only two minutes away from the RGJ. I was pretty happy with what I got from the fights, and as a fan, it was great to see the fights live.
With any sport I shoot after the first time I always come away seeing something I could have done better, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to shoot their next event on July 20. Working at a venue like this you are at the mercy of the lights, and from what I was told the lighting at this one was some of the hardest to shoot in. While not perfect I can’t seem to find anything worse than the Lantz Field house at EIU.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the night.
Now onto the main event.
This is probably my favorite sports reaction photos I’ve taken so far.
As I was editing these I thought to myself I haven’t done a black and white photo since I shot for The Daily Eastern News, so here you go.
