I shot about 8000 photos in 6 days at the CrossFit Games.  I also shot about 12 hour of video, mostly athlete interviews.  The two cameras – Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II.

This photo was snapped just as the run, muscle up, snatch event started.  Rich Froning won this heat.  This was the “top” heat.

Hummingbird Moth – Arizona

It can take years to capture a quality Humming Bird Moth photograph.   Yes, they can be seen, but it requires luck or the knowledge of their habits to get a quality photo.  It is best to find these remarkable insects in the early dawn.  Whenever I see them past 8AM they seem to be en route to “another location”.  I have never seen a faster flying insect and if they are not feeding in a particular location for several minutes, getting a photo is near impossible.  This particular morning in Prescott Arizona, at about 7AM, I grabbed about 100 epic photographs of this Humming Bird Moth!  He was solo and stayed on this bush for 10 minutes!  More photos to come!

It seemed impossible, to repeat as a CrossFit Games Champion, until Rich Froning arrived on the scene.  Rich put on a spectacular show for the packed house at the 2012 Central East CrossFit Games Regionals.

I carried two cameras at this event.

This photo was shot in Cookville, TN prior to Rich winning the 2011 CrossFit Games.  Rich was crowned the fittest man alive in 2011 and will defend his title on the weekend of July 12-15, 2012 in Carson, California at the 2012 CrossFit Games.

If Rich wins, he will be the first athlete to repeat victory.

Rich Froning, the fittest man on earth, using a bat.

I went to Wal-Mart and bought $300 dollars worth of goodies to smash with a bat.  Here you can see Rich sending a  red onion into a snowy field.  A pile of wood and debris was lit on fire to keep us warm during this photo shoot.
