Champion Boxers

 

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Regis Prograis, a local welterweight on his way to the US Olympic trials this year held in Mobile, AL. A few years ago I had the pleasure to photograph Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz for the same editorial client at the same gym here in Houston. Just as the last time, everyone was incredibly nice at the Savannah Boxing Club. As a throwback to my first shoot there, I made the same lighting setup for Prograis. Prograis and his people were easy to get along with and we all had a great time.

Houston Area High School Softball

Life has been crazy busy these last few months. Between a major personal project and trips to Cuba, Iowa and Arkansas, I have been running myself thin. Even for these tough times business has been good and life in general is good. Pictures and stories from projects and trips are soon to come.
As it has been far too long since my last post on here I thought I’d show a few images from the regional high school softball games I shot last month for my main local editorial client, The Houston Chronicle. The days were very hot. At least one of these teams of girls had to skip prom to play. High school kids fighting for trips to the state tournaments always make for great moments. I hope you enjoy seeing a bit of what I had the pleasure to witness.
