Allow me to introduce myself. My name is William McKee. My love and passion for photography began in 1998 when I received my first digital camera and I haven’t been able to put it down. When MYMMANEWS gave me a chance to shoot my 1st fight i was instantly hooked! It’s been a privilege and honor to be part of this team and will continue to capture all the action to bring to our fans.
