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.
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.
Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin is a 4.048-mile asphalt track with 14 turns. The American Le Mans Series made its first visit to Road America on July 7, 2002, and is a favorite track for drivers in all classes. The combination of high-speed straights, heavy braking zones, fast sweeping corners, and a variety of elevation changes, provides great racing for drivers and fans alike.
