Deontay Wilder, World Heavyweight Champion

So this is not the usual wedding, editorial or kids & family post that you usually see from me. Occasionally I also shoot pro sports. I love diversifying what I shoot because I strongly believe it keeps me challenged and continually learning. I first started shooting pro sports with PGA Champions Tour events, Triumph super bike racing and Indy racing. It’s fast. Really fast. So, I have to think fast and react fast, just like I do on a wedding day.

In May, I enjoyed photographing a local boy who’s made it big in the pro boxing arena. World Heavyweight Champion, Deontay Wilder from Tuscaloosa, Alabama was in Birmingham for a press conference at Bartow Arena. The unprecedented Birmingham boxing event, Deontay Wilder vs. Eric Molina was held on June 13th and televised on Showtime. Deontay won the fight and kept his World Heavyweight Title.

I enjoyed meeting Deontay. He was a super nice guy and really tall…

I had to jump in a photo with the World Heavyweight Champion…
