2010 SCORE Baja 500

Known as the second biggest desert race in the world, the SCORE Baja 500 is a warm up race for the grand daddy of all offroad races, the Baja 1000. Held every year in June, the 2010 Baja 500 started in the town of Ensenada, and would work its way through the Baja peninsula until it finally came back around and finished where it started. This year saw a huge entry list in the unlimited classes, with 39 Trophy Trucks starting and over 20 Class 1 cars.

LOORRS Las Vegas – Remote Flash, is that a dome light?

Back in 2008 I read an article on the Strobist Blog about how David Hobby mounted a few remote flashes inside the cockpit of a helicopter to light up the interior at sunset. Here is a link to the original article.

LOORRS Las Vegas – Remote Camera Roll of the Dice

Like most events that I go to, I usually have a few goals in mind regarding a certain shot or angle I want to get. This past weekend I headed out to Las Vegas for Rounds 5 & 6 of the Lucas Oil Offroad Racing Series to cover short course racing. For this weekend my goal was to get some unique shots using a remote camera and a remote flash inside one of the race trucks. A few years ago I mounted a camera in Kyle Leduc’s Prolite truck, and again in Brad Lovell’s and Becca Webster’s Rockcrawler, and while I got a few decent shots I always wanted to try it again. Here are a few shots from a few years ago.

2010 Over The Hump Race Series #1

This past Tuesday marked the beginning of a great local mountain bike series based out of Irvine Lake, CA. Its called Over The Hump Race Series, and its designed to be a fun environment where everyone from beginners to pros can come out and race, and share the experience with the friends and family. What makes it better is that they are held on Tuesday’s at 6pm so it doesn’t interfere with other weekend races, and anyone can come after work and check it out.

2010 Lucas Oil Offroad Racing – Rounds 3 & 4

This past weekend marked Rounds 3 & 4 for the 2010 Lucas Oil Offroad Racing series in Surprise, Arizona.  Coming into the races I had a few goals in mind.  One goal was to get some driver profiles when they are in their trucks using off camera flash with a little homemade snoot I made.

2010 Vision Quest / Counting Coup Mountain Bike Race

This time last year marked the first time I photographed a mountain bike race. It was called the Vision Quest / Counting Coup mountain bike race in the Santa Ana Mountains, put on by the Warriors Society. The Vision Quest race is 56 miles long, with 11,000 feet of elevation, with the Counting Coup being 44 miles and 8,000 feet. I had a great time last year shooting all the racers and seeing them on their own personal battle. It’s always inspiring to watch someone push themselves beyond what they think they can do.
