A few weeks back I was thrown into an action packed job! It was incredible to get to work with the staff and team on American Ninja Warrior. The athletes featured on the show have the strength, determination and ability to lay it all on the line - while on NBC in front of millions! To me, that takes massive courage and absolute strength. American Ninja Warrior hopes to capture the personal growth and development of individuals who are motivated to change their life!
For me as a photographer, I got to take photos of people when they feel their absolute best. The level of confidence the warriors had during the shoot translates into the photos. Power and determination is in their eyes. I love capturing this raw emotion in my work.
I have found memories of the project. I particularly loved working with the hosts Matt Iseman, Kristine Leahy and Akbar Gbajajiamila who act more as coaches than host on the show.
