Valor and Grit – A Muay Thai Fighter’s Journey [Photo Essay] Set 2 (VIDEO)

I made it to another training session to make more photos for the “VALOR & GRIT” Photo Essay I’m working on.

I mounted a GoPro Session 5 on my Fujifilm x100t to get the first person Point of View (POV) of the session and the context around making some of the photos.

Check out the video up there and the photos from session two below. See other Valor & Grit Photo Essay Sessions.

Valor and Grit – A Muay Thai Fighter’s Journey [Photo Essay] Set 1

I met Francisco Garcia in 2010.

I joined the same gym he was training at and he was already a beast.

My Muay Thai stint lasted less than 3 months but since then I’ve stayed in touch with “El Travieso”. Over the years I’ve watched him go up the amateur ranks.

One day I was watching Glory (Televised Muay Thai bouts) and there he was. Representing San Diego. Walking into the ring like a tiger. He is a professional fighter now and is training for the biggest challenge of his career.

These photos are part of the photo essay of his journey.

Big thank you to John Vargas head coach at Valor Muay Thai for letting us shoot.

Gaslamp Quarter – San Diego Street Photography

San Diego Street Photography Vlogging

Street photography is one of my favorites things to do.


So I was sitting here thinking…

What would be a fun way to explore San Diego and bring you along?

I’ll pick up street photography again and show you San Diego not only through my photos but I’ll vlog some of my sessions.

Don’t know what Street Photography is? Well basically I walk around making photos of life’s moments.

I’m not a proclaiming to be a great photographer. I just love creating.

You don’t have to be Michael Jordan to enjoy a pickup game of basketball am I right? 😉

OK here are my favorite from the Gaslamp Quarter Photos from my latest San Diego Street Photography Session.

I used my Fujifilm X100T for this session.

UPDATE: The film crew in these photos was part of the Cesar Milan Dog Nation production crew. I didn’t know that at the time but I offered to send them some photos. I thought it would be nice to have some photos of themselves working. They enjoyed the photos and invited me to the live taping of the show and do some set photography.

You never know what doors a street photo session will open for you. Check out the photos and then see the Cesar Millan’s DogNation Unofficial Set Photographer For A Day
