In this second half of the podcast I caught up with photographer and muay thai fanatic Erica De León of Vivar Photography. She’s a super passionate individual a devoted mother, committed photographer and she trains hard alongside champion muay thai fighters like Ariana ‘Pink Lady’ Gomez and Selina Flores. In our conversation Erica takes us inside training at Muay Thai Academy of America in North Hollywood, CA. She shares intimate stories of how she found muay thai, photography and became friends with the likes of Ariana Gomez and Troy Fisher (Big Troy of Cali Muay Thai Series). Erica has shot some beautiful images and we discussed a few including one of my favorites in her repertoire entitled The Flying Knee fearturing 11 year old Isaiah “Izzy” Ramirez. Erica is hilarious, honest and inspired. She was truly a joy to speak with and I know there’s nothing but more to come as we’ve just scratched the surface of what lies ahead! I’ll look forward to seeing her this month out at the fights ringside capturing the magic that is muay thai in action and ultimately training with her and breaking an honest sweat. Please enjoy the interviews and the music and above all enjoy this and every moment. Sawaddee krap.
