Primary Flight took place during Art Basel 2010 in Miami’s around the Wynwood Arts District. Graffiti & Street artists took over the wall of the Wynwood Arts District with permission of the building owners. It was an epic event, I had a bit of an apprehension to being in Miami industrial district at night. I have to say I was wrong, the area was crawling with artist everywhere, the air had a good vibe. Every one was very chill and in to the scene. I was jaw dropped over the work I saw, it was amazing to meet and talk to people from around the world that had come to Miami to take a can of spray paint to a wall.
This images are shot with a Canon 5D MK II, I used a number of techniques to get the shots. I want to capture the interaction of the artist and their work
World’s Largest Street Level Mural Installation
Primary Flight’s annual project is the world’s largest event of its kind. Primary Flight has featured over 250 world class artists from around the globe, the majority of whom travel to Miami for Art Basel. Artists from all walks of contemporary art headline our annual event. Artists collaborate on high profile walls throughout Miami’s urban landscape.
Here is my collection of images from the first day, I was incredibility impressed with the artists and there work.
Slow and Sone judged a Graffiti Battle held at “The Park“. I wander down to see the battle and check out the park. I have fond memories of skate parks, my first broken bones was from skateboarding. The park is indoors and very impressive.
Big night last night, stepping up to shoot professional MMA at Bellator Fighting Championships 34 tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood Florida.
I have to say the MMA Bellator Fighting Championships 34 where great. They know how to put on a very professional event. I spent the night cage side shooting for CagePotato.com thanks guys for the hook up.
I have to say the Fujii/Frausto match up as a war! It was a 5 round slug fest, those ladies left everything in the cage last night.
Bad luck for Florida’s Igor Almeida, he lost by TKO via doctor stoppage for a very nasty gash over the right eye. Hope to see you in the cage again soon. Hope to see him in another Bellator Fighting Championships match up.

This weekend I got the opportunity to cover a MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) show in Brevard County. The Event was promoted by Extreme Cage Fights (www.xcfights.com
) and help at Levelz Night Club
. I was really impressed with the professionalism and the sportsmanship of all the fighters and the Gym Mats
promoters who are also offering some of the affordable folding treadmills
I was asked by a good friend to help her find homes for her foster cats. The poor economy has caused more and more animals to lose their homes. Even if you can’t adopt a cat you can help out by a donation.
