People/portraits USA Weightlifting

  1. I scored a photo gig for this weightlifting competition that I shot about two weeks ago, between fourteen hour workdays, I optimistically got around eight hours of sleep for the entire weekend. Didn't feel like work in the traditional sense though, because I really enjoyed it and didn't mind the lack of sleep, so that's gotta mean something right?

    This is what I shot for the most part, using a D7100 I rented out with a 35 1.8 on a tripod and my own D3100 with a 50 1.8, but that's not what this post is here for.

    These are some pictures that I shot in my off time when I wasn't scheduled to shoot my platform, and here's a few of them:

    I also met Anthony Mazur, and if you don't know who he is:


    He peaked my interest cause he was shooting with a 70-200 2.8L with his T5i, and when I went to talk to him I found out that he actually was actually shooting the event for Sports Illustrated, who gave him the opportunity after his story blew up. His assignment for SI was to create a 10 image photo story, haven't found where that set is yet though.

    Overall a really awesome experience, met a couple Olympians and worked with cool people, and I'm making 50/50 commission split with the company I was working with!

  2. That sounds cool! The closest I ever got to that was shooting a 24 hour motor race for a friend of mine. I was in the garage and around the circuit for most of the race. Exhausting but great fun!
