Looking Forward- Looking Back

Recently I took some time to look back at the work that I have been doing over the past decade and a half. I sifted through images and decided to add some new stuff to my portfolio. I plan on sharing some thoughts along with the photos.

Boxing is such an intense sport, and that is coming from a guy who grew up wrestling!

I took this photo in 2015 in Salinas, California and is my favorite photo of the sport that I have made.

Alan Sanchez of Fairfield connects a punch to the face of Carlos Lozano of Ensenada, Mexico on his way to a win in their welterweight bout in Salinas on June 26, 2015.
