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.

2012 Baja 500 – Tidal Wave of Silt

The SCORE Baja 500 is always a journey in itself to photograph. While the race is going on the media have their own race to get from spot to spot as fast but as safely as possible in order to deliver what we need to our clients. A photographer has to prepare for a race the same way a team does. We have to prep our vehicles, we need to prerun the race course, we need to be ready for a long day out in the desert, and we have to be focused on our job at hand. The difference between a driver and a photographer is that once the checkered flag hits, we still have work to do. We need to edit photos and get them out to clients as fast as possible. We have to work for hours going through everything, backing them up, promoting ourselves, etc, etc, all before the next race. And in between all that fit in time for our families.

2011 BITD Parker 425

One of the best offroad races of the year just went down in Parker, AZ. The BITD Parker 425 is a favorite among racers and fans alike. From the qualifying session on Thursday, and the racing action all day Saturday, Parker always delivers great racing, and great photography.

2011 Desert Season Has Begun

Almost two months ago I crashed my quad over Thanksgiving and suffered a concussion, broke rib, and a fractured L2 vertebrate. Because of that I had to miss two races in December, making it the first time in a long time that I didn’t shoot anything for over a full month. Instead I was out of working, laying in bed, unable to pick my own son up from his crib.

My Best Photos of 2010

2010 has been a great year for me and my family. My amazing wife Jamie and I have seen our son turn into a blob of a baby to a growing young man. Its crazy how fast time flies by and watching him grow up and being a parent with Jamie has been the best part of the year. I also turned 30 this year, celebrated our two year wedding anniversary, crashed my quad and broke a vertebrate, went to Kauai, and once again went to a lot of great locations to do what I love, photography.

Chasing the 2010 SCORE Baja 1000 – My Story

For this years SCORE Baja 1000 my assignment was to chase the McMillin Racing team. My usual cohort was the legendary Scott Smith of Paradigm Productions, and our buddy Johnny “The Slayer” Rukkas. We headed down Wednesday morning to get down there before contingency started so that we made sure we caught them rolling through tech. Luckily for us, around 5:45am Scott got a text from Beau of McMillin Racing asking when we were headed down. Beau was already sitting in line waiting for tech to start in the #31 Trophy Truck, so we knew first thing when we got there we’d be able to catch them.
