Muay Thai

February 9, 2011 § 2 Comments

These photos are from a combination of two different nights and four different muay thai matches during two different weekends down in Hua Hin.

The first of which being two 11-year-old kids fighting each other.  The second is two random Thai fighters I didn’t know, but they had a really good fight.  The last two fights pictured – basically the reason we went to the matches in the first place – are of our friend Meow (black shorts).  Apparently Meow doesn’t fight much anymore (he’s considered old for muay thai), but he’s a goog trainer, so it’s exciting to watch his matches.  All the of the fighters do this traditional dance before they fight, which is apparently supposed to be the perfect warm-up/stretch for the activity they’re about to partake in (wailing on each other).

Left, is one of the 11-year-old boys doing his warm-up just before the match.

On Assignment: running up

September 19, 2010 § Leave a comment

More sportraits.  Scott Hubs and Jason Adams, these two guys ran from Bend to the summit of Mt. Bachelor – approximately 22 miles.  This was a story about the two of them and about the run, so I did kind of a portraity thing near Mt. Bachelor, we drove up Century Dr. until there was a nice view.

On Assignment: awesome central Oregon sports

MUD-VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT: Central Oregon Pumpkin Co., Terrebonne, Oregon

I’ve been covering a lot of what The Bulletin calls “community sports” with writer Katie Brauns, they basically seem to be amateur, sometimes weird or “unusual”, occasionally sort of redneck-ish, community based sports.  This one was no different, full of rednecky goodness, it was awesome; a volleyball tournament, in the mud, with half naked people.  What more could you ask for?

“Sportraits”

September 13, 2010 § Leave a comment

Okay, so here’s a bunch of old “sportraits” – so they’re called – from my Barometer days.  This stuff I really like doing.  Some are better than others.All these posts are just making up for lost time… Trying to show different things I’ve done.  More recent stuff will come soon, it’s hard to post newspaper (Bulletin) stuff right away, can’t give away stories before they run.

First Term Down

December 16, 2009 § Leave a comment

Fall term is done here at OSU, and I started a new job at the Corvallis Mac Store.

I just wanted to have an updated post.  The photo above really has nothing to do with The Mac Store, but it’s one of my favorites.  I’ll post more sports pics soon!
