A new track brings new opportunities on the West Coast. I travel to San Bernardino, California for the final [...]
After King of the Hammers and planning for 100 Acre Wood Rally I realized that navigation off the grid was going to be important for shooting this type of racing going forward. I was looking for a tablet mount to use in multiple vehicles that would be in an easy to reach place as well as very stable during off road expeditions.
Rally Racing has always eluded me in my quest for new photography adventures, but not this year. The Rally in the 100 Acre Wood had a record 80 entries and covered 125 stage miles that brought together rally teams from all across the country and several foreign countries on the gravel roads of Missouri.
Something I have always wanted to do is experience and photograph the King of the Hammers off-road racing event in Johnson Valley, California; and this year it became a reality. We booked a flight, rented a Jeep Wrangler to get us around the desert, and set about planning for our adventure.
This photoshoot was comissioned for a catalog cover and the goal was to create images of a cullinary student & instructor cooking and prepping food while working in a commercial kitchen. We contacted a local hotel and asked nicely to take over their kitchen for few hours between the lunch and dinner service.
I have been looking into shooting other sports outside of the motorsport world and I have been particularly interested in soccer, basketball, and baseball. After doing some research, I found that some sports shooters covering these type of events use different remote trigger setups such as foot pedals and cable release buttons.
Just outside Madison, Wisconsin lies Columbus 151 Speedway. It’s a family owned semi-banked quarter mile oval, a classic Midwest circle track, and home to Friday night stock car races throughout the summer. But every few weeks on a Saturday morning, as the staff are picking up the empty beer cans and hot dog wrappers from the last night’s races, the track comes alive again.
