• 1.5.8 project Saturdays at Wildcard Boxing Gym begins

     

    I gave myself a new focus. This year, in an attempt to diversify, I thought to incorporate my passion number 2 into the photography thing that I do. I decided that this year I will set out to shoot fighters. I started hanging out at the Wildcard Boxing Club owned by the (in)famous Freddie Roach. I used to box here some years ago. My going back and hanging around didn’t seem to bother anyone. Still the same main guys hanging around, (minus some scandalized individuals.) So I quietly sit in different corners and watch.
