Deontay Wilder-World Heavyweight Champ

Deontay Wilder, the current Heavyweight boxing champion. Shot with him a while back in New Jersey for Everlast. Really great shoot. The client and crew were awesome. And i'd kill for this location everyday. Deontay gave a ton of energy. His punches were so quick and powerful, that it took a little bit to catch up with. The sound his gloves made when they hit the heavy bag was like a wrecking ball slamming into the side of a building. Can't imagine that being someone's face. Guess that's why he's the champ? 




Niagra Falls

On New Years Day, I was driving through upstate New York on my way back to San Diego. And found myself close enough to Niagra Falls that I shouldn't pass it up. Why not? Had never been there before, and figured it was a good time to cross it off the list? My expectations weren't that high, as I sort of expected it just to be a tourist trap. And it was definitely that, but it also couldn't have been more impressive. I had heard that the place to see it is from the Canada side, which I did. The power was amazing. As you walk in, you're eye level with the huge river of water that takes the turn into the falls. Then you keep walking, and you're right at the end of the falls where everything drops. And it's almost impossible to wrap your head around how big it is and how much water is flowing over the falls as any given moment. A very cool thing to see.  If you ever find yourself in that area, put in the extra effort to stop in. Depending on the time and day of the week, crossing the border is not bad at all. Well worth it.
