She Will Make You Cry “UNCLE!”

Monday, March 21st, 2011

You have heard over and over that when you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything right?  Well so far Nicole is doing just that.  She has goals, and her goals kick *ss. Literally.    For someone who has only been in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for just over a year she is taking the sport by storm.  In the last year she has won the Renzo Gracie Invitational with all matches won by submission in under 45 seconds (and zero points scored on her), she was the Provincial OJA Champion in Aurora Ontario, and this past Feb 26th, she received her Blue Belt on the podium by Dan Moroney of Bravado Jiu Jitsu.  Oh ya, she was also the Champion at that event as well winning all 5 matches with zero points scored on her.  So what’s next for this warrior?  She has her eyes set on becoming the first Female to represent Canada in  Jiu Jitsu and is training hard with Team Submission Factory and Team Shredder to achieve this goal


My Belt Is White & It Now Has A Stripe.

Most of my blog posts deal with photography, my clients, our business and sometimes our travels, but rarely do I talk about my “fitness” endeavors.  For the past 6 months I have tried something completely out of the norm for me and my fitness ventures.  I decided to take up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Team Submission Factory (website coming soon, you can check them out on facebook) 3 nights a week.  Coming into a martial arts club with zero experience can be pretty intimidating, but George, Erin, Mike and the other members took that fear out of the equation immediately and last night along with a few other of my teammates I received my first stripe.  I would like to personally thank all my teammates for training with me, tapping me, hurting me, and making me a better Jiu-Jitsu Artist.

Me, Mike, Dave, Chris, George, Jason, & Brandon
(Mike – Blue Belt – Received his 3rd stripe)
(Dave – White Belt – Received his 3rd stripe)
(Chris – White Belt – Received his first stripe)
(Jason – White Belt – Received 2 stripes)
(Brandon – White Belt – Received his 2nd stripe)


Team Submission Factory

As I stated in my previous post we photographed my Jiu-Jitsu instructor George Murphy  (Now I just need to get the other instructors in the studio).  Since I have been up since 5:10 am this morning I am now starting to play around with the images.  We really didn’t know what we were going to do or what these images were going to be used for (Of course to promote Team Submission Factory) so I kept the lighting fairly simple yet effective and opted to shoot on a solid white background for easy extraction.  Lighting on this image was two softboxes 90 degrees to the left and right of me and 2 monolights lighting up the background behind me.  I then extracted George from that background and placed him on this one that I created using various textures I have from over the years.
