What an amazing experience the CrossFit Regionals were for me. I feel extremely fortunate that Kill Cliff had me to cover their athletes in the South, East, and West Regionals. While I did this last year at the Southwest, this was a lot more fun with significantly more experience under my belt. I also got to work alongside some of the best CrossFit photographers in Shaun Cleary - "Super Cleary", David "Benny" Benedict, Tai Randall, Preston Smith, Brian Sullivan, Ted Bonenfont and all of the video guys. I used this as an opportunity to observe their work flow, how they see things, where they shoot, how they cull and edit on a timeline. This definitely helped me to improve as a photographer. One of the biggest surprises is that almost all of these photographers have only been taking pictures for about three years (same for me) so it tells me that everyone is able to learn things pretty quickly.I'll upload galleries in the next few weeks, but I wanted to post one of my favorite pictures of Austin Malleolo in the East Regional.
The East Regional was the second round of Regionals for me in 2015. I got to see some new teams and athletes I had never heard of or seen before. I find Mat Frasier entertaining, he's skilled, powerful and emotional. Frasier was leading the entire weekend by what seemed like a wide margin. The men's side of He's getting better at engaging the fans during and after workouts. CrossFit New England almost had two teams qualify for the games and partying with their team afterwards was a blast. Heather Bergeron is easily the best dancer in Boston.
