Here's one from the Habitat Mud Volleyball fundraiser this past weekend in Charlotte, NC at Arysley Town Center. From what I could tell, the participants had an absolute blast frolicking in the mud in support of the charity. Not to mention, they represented their respective organizations quite well!
Jesus Soto-Karass vs. Juan Buenida, Reading PA.
Had I known then what I know now, I would have
been following this up and coming welterweight , Jesus Soso-Karass, from Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico since I made this
image back in 2007. This fight is against Juan Manuel Buendia at the Sovereign
Center in Reading, PA. Soso-Karass won a 10 round unanimous decision. Jesus Soto-Karass out of Mexico has proven to be a very
game welterweight who always brings a busy, action packed style to the ring. I
can’t wait to see his upcoming fight against Andre Berto on July 27th.
I anticipate it being an action packed fight.
Hey everyone! I'm Dirk Weaver, a freelance photographer based out of Charlotte, NC. I am using this blog to get my thoughts, opinions, and ideas on the web.
I started making images in 2004 when I bought my first digital camera, a Nikon D70. I didn't know much about photography nor did I know very many photographers, but I was determined to make it work and pursue Photojournalism as career and flee the cubicle jungle for good. I took a few classes, read several websites and made a lot of mistakes early on, which I am truly grateful for.
My blog will be chronicle of my thoughts, ideas, perspectives and personal experiences, both good and bad, as they pertain to photography and the world around us. I hope that you find my writings both helpful as well as entertaining and that they help you avoid some of the challenges that I had early on.
A sincere Thank You goes out to the many people I have met along the way, both photographers and other wise. All of you have helped in many ways in my aspirations to make photography a career. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, comments or criticisms.
