What’s up dudes and dudettes?? We’re in the middle of Strikeforce fight week for Rockhold vs Jardine and I gotta say, I’m already beat.  Today was insane-o but in the best way.  We had a press conference midday flanked by studio work.  While I was busy getting the portraits done for Strikeforce, Casey was clipping [...]

Back in Vegas! We took a short break at home in Los Angeles to see the NYE American Nightmare reunion.  Here’s a video of that show and can you spot us in this photo?  Esther spent the entire show fucking shit up in the pit. She is the coolest. Now we are settled back into [...]

Strikeforce Houston Fight Night

It’s not a secret that we here at All Elbows are longtime fans of Mo Lawal, as we’ve done pretty much all his pre-fight hype videos since meeting him in Japan last year.  But I have also worked with Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante since his days at EliteXC and I honestly couldn’t be prouder to see [...]

UFC 114 Workouts
UFC 114 Workouts

Out here in Vegas covering UFC 114 for MMAFighting/AOL Fanhouse and having a blast.  Tons of fans in town.  Longest media workout EVER.  But that means I had infinite opportunities to take the photos I wanted to take and so, I did. The crowd flowed in and out most of the six hours but there [...]

Fight Night in Smashville
Fight Night in Smashville

I’ll tell you how my Saturday night went. I shot three great victories in Strikeforce and they were overshadowed by well, you know. Whatever about how you think the fights went — I saw three underdogs win, three lower ranked fighters beat the odds and beat their opponents in dominating fashion.

Welcome to Smashville
Welcome to Smashville

Fight week in Nashville. Here for Strikeforce and I’m super thrilled for Saturday’s stacked fight card. Three championship fights! It’s gonna be sweet.

Here’s my favorite shots of this week so far.

We present to you another All Elbows video, sandwiched between our travels to a land full of dudes also named Muhammed and back to Nashville for the Strikeforce on CBS megacard. King Mo is contending for the Strikeforce light heavyweight title against champion Gegard Mousasi this Saturday on CBS.

Completely forgot to share these.  The day after Strikeforce: Nashville held the LA media workout, we continued the Showtime crew’s feature shoot for the broadcast with greenscreen on the CBS studio lot.  Between setups, I shot new studio work of the fighters in the main events, and ridiculous number of photos of Aoki since I [...]

Rock n’ Jock at AKA
Rock n' Jock at AKA

MTV’s Rock N’ Jock countdown invaded AKA in San Jose for a few days during Strikeforce Challengers week and I hung around for some of the antics with Josh Thomson, Gilbert Melendez, staredown lessons with Mayhem and King Mo, and sparring with Miesha Tate. Though Dirty appeared to survive his fight with Takedown Tate, even [...]

All Elbows' Favorites Part Two: Studio

Continuing with our favorite images from 2009, I thought I’d put a break in the middle of the year to highlight the part of my job that I had the hardest time learning, since I didn’t come from a photography background. Studio. Working with Strikeforce has enabled me to spend time with many fighters on [...]

All Elbows’ Favorites Part One
All Elbows' Favorites Part One

This was a pretty eventful and adventure-filled year for us. It began with the two of us in Tokyo, jobless but credentialed at both Dynamite!! and Sengoku No Ran, bumping into “Mayhem” Miller in our budget hotel and ended most recently with us in San Jose, myself working for Strikeforce and Casey working for AOL [...]

Gosh, it feels like forever since I’ve been at Strikeforce, having spent the last month on the road shootng UFC.  But I’m back and have two galleries for y’all today. I spent the whole day at the Showtime feature shoot but took my lunch break to shoot Cung Le’s open workout at his USH gym [...]
