Fighter portraits series -4

So today after a longer than necessary hiatus I decided to continue this series. This time around it features future boxing hall of famer Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez.

I captured this image when Sergio visited Puerto Rico for a media tour promoting his fight with Puertorican superstar Miguel Cotto. Martinez would eventually lose the fight and would retire a bit later.

Still his mark on the sport holding the WBO, WBC and Ring Magazine championships will secure him a spot as one of the sports greatest.

Ryan’s Portrait

A summer classes where I teach are coming to a close it was time for one of my classes to step into the studio and work on portraits. Usually around this time I like to teach a Strobist ( ala David Hobby) semminar in which we use our portable flashes to create dramatic portraits.

One of my photoshop course students Ryan was kind enough to model for us, here are some of the results. Hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.

Cheers!

Fighter portraits series- 4

Continuing this portrait series here’s one of Ivan Calderon. He’s definetly a future hall of fame boxer and one of the best defensive fighters to come out of Puerto Rico.

This image for me is touching since it was taken during his first loss. Facing a younger, bigger and hungrier opponent all the while Calderon was entering the final stages of his career. He would retire a few fight later.
