TIMING THE ACTION
MY LENS AND IN THE RING
It all started with some used boxing gloves, a small backyard, and my father, a former boxer himself, training me. My father boxed and my grandfather earned extra money being a boxing referee. I wasn't even allowed to go to bed until I jumped rope first. I have never fallen in love so hard like I did with boxing. The sweet science... oh so sweet.
While having 9-5 job, in a cubicle, with an hour commute, I kept training and competing in boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, then BOOM!! Thats how my niche was born!
Training and competed in boxing and mixed martial arts since I was 8 years old has certainly been key to capture some of my best action shots. I can relate to fighters and I know as a competitor myself which moments you want to keep. And whats even more rewarding is having the opportunity to train with some of the fighters and competitors who book me.
I'm owner of iRull Designs a branding/web design company. iRull Fotos is an extension of my company focusing on photography.
You can say I was destined to be a photographer. I just didn't know it until about 2013. I was that teenager who always carried a disposable camera (back it was cool) in her purse, ready to capture any moment I didn't want to slip away.
In 2013 a boxing manager hired me to design a sponsorship package for his fighter. Pleased with my work he asked me if I could take photos of his upcoming fight and he would make sure to get my credentials in order. My first thought was, "I should buy a camera then".
Even though my creative eye for graphic design was key, it was definitely a lot of on the job training. I created iRull Fotos in 2016 specializing in all combat sport events (including boxing, mma, jiu-jitsu, and submission grappling).
Even though combat sports has been a part of me since the age of 8, I didn't know how much I would love to capture a family's most genuine, loving moments and help entrepreneurs expand their brand with stunning images.
