I recently photographed action film star Ernie Reyes Jr. for Century Martial Arts and their Martial Arts Success magazine. I did the shoot at their in-house studio in Midwest City, which was very nice. I used much of their own lighting and mixed in some of my own Paul Buff Einstein lights so as to better freeze the action of Ernie during his martial arts moves. Ernie has been in a number of movies, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He has co-starred with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as other action and adventure stars. Ernie was very easy to work with and was in amazing physical condition. I had everything set up and tested well before he arrived, and kept him in the studio no more than 30 minutes. It was nice to finally work with my niece Amber Coble on this cool project!
His photo made the cover of the magazine and a nice inside spread.
