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.
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.
