Photographer Jeff "Turbo" Corrigan drew on his previous experience shooting sports to photograph this week's cover of kickboxer Ashley Curry sparring at Undisputed North Park. "You can't plan too much when you're trying to get an action shot," Corrigan says. "Those girls were pretty active in the ring and pretty assertive." Corrigan used strobes in the dark gym, and says he couldn't have gotten any shots without assistant Sergio Gomez constantly moving the lights around while the action shifted in the ring. Corrigan's studio is Downtown, and his last cover for CityBeat was "The Beer Issue" (April 15).
