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.

20 Photos That Define The Mint 400

The Mint 400 is a great race filled with rich tradition and historic racing. While dormant for some time it has recently been brought back to life the past couple years and is now one of the most challenging offroad races in the states. Desert Offroad Racing is my favorite thing to shoot for many reasons. This past weekend I traveled to Las Vegas to cover The Mint 400, and here are 20 of my favorite photos from the weekends festivities.

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.

TORC In Crandon Gets Muddy

Nascar has Daytona, Formula 1 has Indy, and short course offroad racing has The Big House in Crandon. No other track has the rich history that Crandon does, and the amount of fans that show up haven’t been rivaled at any other track.

BITD Vegas to Reno Offroad Race

One of my favorite desert races of the year to take photos at is the BITD Vegas to Reno race. I like shooting the long point to point races because it adds an extra step of preparation on planning out your race day strategy. Instead of being able to pick a different spot each lap, with point to point races you need to estimate how long you can stay at each spot, time it will take to get to the next spot, and factor in some cushion so that you don’t miss anyone at your next spot.

BITD Forest 300 Race

The BITD Silver State 300 is always a fun race to shoot because its not the usual Nevada desert we’re used to. It is held near Caliente, NV which is around 4500 feet up and filled with lots of great scenery. While chasing the race you’ll be driving next to Joshua Trees, and a few minutes later be in the middle of a forest. The only bad part was Friday night and Bink and I slept in our trucks and it was 31 degrees out.
