Pikes Peak International Hill Climb – The Race To The Clouds

Recently I had the opportunity to cover the 95th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for the first time. I was part of a team that consisted of Larry Chen and Louis Yio as the Official Photographers for Pikes Peak. Quite an honor. The race is known as being one of the toughest hill climbs in the world because of the altitude that it’s run at. The start line is already at 9,390 feet and by the time you finish the race after 12.42 miles and 156 turns, you’re up at 14,115 feet.

Crandon Raceway Should Be On Your Bucket List

You hear it all the time from both newbies and veterans of people who go to Crandon Raceway on Labor Day weekend for the world championships. “You need to go to Crandon once in your life.” One thing is certain, that you never hear someone come back from Crandon and say they didn’t have a good time, the racing was just eh, and that cheese curds aren’t gods gift to the earth. Crandon is Crandon, and words aren’t enough to put the experience of Crandon into perspective. When you get to Crandon and walk into the raceway you feel a sense of history hovering over your shoulder and you know just how important the track is to our sport. Your first time there, or if you go back year after year, that feeling is always there.

Smoke And Rubber Fly At Formula Drift Seattle

One thing that is always good to do as a photographer is challenge yourself and put yourself in conditions where you don’t feel comfortable. It’s easy if you shoot the same thing all the time to get in a routine where you settle for doing the same thing time and time again but you don’t improve as a photographer that way. One common thing that all successful photographers have is that they are able to excel in any situation that they are put in and I try to do that each time I head out with my camera.

The Baja 500 Through My Lens

The Baja 500 is another race that is a favorite to shoot every year. The Baja 1000 from a racers perspective is the race to win each year, but from a photographers point of view, I like covering the 500 a lot more. The reason is that on a point to point peninsula run it is very hard to catch the racers in more then one spot unless you’re only following one team. Even then the majority of the race is during the night where you need time to set up lights.

The Silty State 300

The BITD Silver State 300 is one of my favorite offroad races to shoot each year. Just 150 miles outside Las Vegas the race is centered around the old railroad town of Caliente Nevada. Some races you go to you may struggle to find a few good shooting spots but at this race the dilemma is always trying to narrow them down and deciding where to shoot. From water crossings, big silt beds, fast rally roads, forest sceneries and railroad bridges, its hard not to find a good spot to take photos from. But you have to do your homework.

NHRA Denver Brings Flames to Bandimere Speedway

One of my favorite tracks to shoot on the NHRA circuit is in Denver Colorado at the Bandimere Speedway. Its a great location, the fan turnout is high, and you always have some great light, especially on Friday with the night session. This year we got lucky and got some nice cloud cover for the event which helped make some nice photos as well.
