Best Of 2011 Interviews

Or really, Ariel Helwani’s greatest hits as compiled by the main dude himself, E. Casey Leydon. This was tons of fun and craziness to put together. And it clocks in at a ridiculous 50 minutes total… I think. I don’t know. Just watch! Or don’t. Casey only spent all of the holidays putting it together. [...]

元気ですか!! Promos

  Damn. We are really enjoying DREAM’s promos for the upcoming FIELDS Genkidesuka New Years spectacular in Japan. Now you can too! Whee.     These are the kinds of videos you need to watch to wash G with a Gi out of your mind. Or not. I don’t know. This one uses my photos [...]

I know it’s not fair but I had to take a short break to package a ton of shirts, make tons of mix CDs, and to shoot production stills on the SHOSports feature shoot for Andre Berto vs VIctor Ortiz II. I wanted to let you know I actually have many posts in draft form [...]

Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal
Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal

Here’s the gallery for tonight’s fights. I’ll post up a few words as soon as I get to a stopping point.  Typing in the car is fun but making me a little queasy. Congratulations to Gilbert Melendez and to Jorge Masvidal as well for a great fight. KJ Noons looked fantastic in his return.  And [...]

James Nachtwey
James Nachtwey

Nearly every time I find myself crying while looking at photos, I look down in the bottom corner and find James Nachtwey‘s name there.  And I was so surprised when I was out shooting in Tokyo with Dan Herbertson when he asked me if I’d seen War Photographer, and I had not.  I didn’t know [...]

The U of MMA

Sometimes, we cut a little time out to do things for fun, for art, to keep our fascination.  We made this lovely video for our friends at the U of MMA.  Right now, we’re sitting at the Pasadena location of Intelligentsia, one of my favorite coffee places in town because I enjoyed both an amazing [...]

Study Guide: Vermeer
Study Guide: Vermeer

  While I didn’t go to any photography classes or school, I did attend film school and studied primarily cinematography (though, I got an A-), and documentary filmmaking. My many cinematography professors pushed watching films with the sound off to pay particular attention to composition and lighting, but stressed the watching of light in art [...]

Shirts Are Back In Stock
Shirts Are Back In Stock

Yup! Shirts are finally back in stock and we have a new addition. A tri-blend lavender long-sleeved shirt with raglan shoulders (meaning it fits your shoulders no matter how wide or narrow) and a wide neck.  It’s loose and slightly oversized, but shorter than our regular t-shirt. I like to pair it with leggings and [...]

Shooting every week, sometimes I will go do a shoot and completely forget about posting the photos.  Usually, it’s because it’s for a magazine and they’ll end up using one or two shots.  Meanwhile, there’s forty or fifty winners just sitting on the hard drive, never to be seen. Here’s a couple from DREAM.16 in [...]

Recap Toronto

Day four. A sampling of random images from this past week in Toronto. I bought a fisheye attachment for my iPhone last year but we moved and I misplaced it for long time.  Well, I dug it out and went a little overboard these last few weeks.  Sorry. But here’s the result of that:   [...]

Day three and I’m just going to apologize now because this snuck up on me and now I’m at the Air Canada Centre trying to blaze through this and get to a quick press dinner so I can shoot the fights without being super grumpy Esther. So what better than to tell you what I [...]

My Favorite Fight Photo
My Favorite Fight Photo

While I’ve had lots of shots I love over the years, there’s only one photo that comes to mind as my absolute favorite.  I know it’s good because it makes me uncomfortable and sad to see. So for day two of the blog challenge, I wanted to share the photo that I’ve taken that I [...]

1. Story Behind The Photo

Okay. I’ve been challenged to post here every day for thirty days since we’ve been assholes and so so absent. And I wasn’t going to take it on, since I’m leaving town for the holidays right in the middle of this thirty day stretch and because I don’t want to post on New Years’ Eve [...]
