Lights, camera, action! Wilder Cartagena takes over team photographer duties at Orlando City training


Wilder Cartagena is really good at soccer, but he may have another career waiting for him in the future.

From Wilder the footballer to Wilder the team photographer.

In a light moment following training Sunday at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, the midfielder grabbed a camera and filled in as an honorary photog -- getting some must-see shots of teammates Pedro Gallese, Kyle Smith, Robin Jansson and Rodrigo Schlegel.
