Sports Illustrated

On Christmas Eve I received an email from my editor informing me that Sports Illustrated was using one of my images in an upcoming article. It is running in the current (Dec 30th 2013) edition of the magazine (also in the online version) under the heading “Seasons Beatings” in the Leading Off section. It’s a boxing picture I snapped at the XFE Bobby “The Celtic Warrior” Gunn vs Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson fights at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In the picture Eric Newell is taking a punch on the side of his face and his sweat is spraying upwards.
I was obviously elated to have achieved this milestone in my photography career, with hopefully more wonderful news in the new year.
