Featured Photographer on PhotoShelter

I received an email this morning that PhotoShelter has selected one of my photographs to be included in their Featured Photographer slideshow.  One of my favorites, it is an image of Andy Wallace just before night practice at the 2010 Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring. This means my image, and therefore a link to my […]


SVRA 2010 Season Finale at Road Atlanta

I usually enjoy shooting Historic Races.  For some reason, I was having trouble getting into the groove.  N ot sure why, the day was warm and sunny, there were a good amount of fans, not to many photographers crowding into one area, fairly optimal.  Maybe it was the low car count.  Maybe I was burnt […]


Petit Le Mans 2010 – Not so Petit this year

Road Atlanta is our home track, we live all of 40 miles from it.  Consequently, I spend quite a bit of time shooting there.  I take this as a challenge though and try to perfect the staples such as Sunset in the Esses all the while looking for new angles and shots.  Petit is somewhat […]


Grand Prix of Mosport 2010 – ALMS

Continuing our wanderings from Road America, we traveled North and tooled around Michigan for a few days and then entered Canada at Sault St. Marie. We took a very long route around the Great Lakes and several days later dropped into Mosport from Killarney.  If you have not been to that part of the world, […]


The Road Race Showcase at Road America – ALMS

Not the greatest of names, but I do tend to dislike rhymes in titles.  Probably an attitude problem on my part.  Anyway, Road America, a new track for us.  Its big, really big and the elevation changes are frequent and heavy.  A great track to shoot at, so many different angles an opportunities.  As I […]


Road America lights up tomorrow

Kick Ass!  I have never been to this park, so I am quite excited to get out there tomorrow and shoot.  Its always a blast to attack a new track.  I have no idea where or why to shoot tomorrow, I get to spend the entire day thinking outside the box.  Hopefully I won’t come […]


Mid…..connection lost…Mid-O…..16hours 12min 36sec remaining…..Mid-Oh..#@$!@&!

Mid-Ohio, the land of the photographer trailer/media center with no internet connectivity. Are they mad at us? Was it something we said? Why can I not upload any of my files?  The Thursday photo meeting in the trailer was the usual excitement. Well, not really, it was scheduled for under the Goodyear Tower and then […]


Listening to the rain near Mid-O

We are sitting in a campground near Mid Ohio listening to the rain drumming on the roof. Why does it seem to rain everywhere we go this summer? It even rained in the desert when we were in Utah. Whatever, shooting in the rain makes for more dramatic photography. Also, I brought my camera’s rain […]


Northeast Grand Prix – ALMS – 2010

After the desert heat of Utah, we were looking forward to the cool mountain breezes of Eastern Connecticut and the alpine majesty of Lime Rock Park. Silly us. Friday started out well enough with partly grey skies, but the day kept creeping towards monsoon season. The 1st practice was slightly wet and damp, but afternoon […]


Larry H. Miller 2010 Utah Grand Prix ALMS

I thought I would try something different this race.  Thought I might post about it while the sounds of the cars were still in my mind.  We are currently hiding in a parking lot of an RV park.  Not a place we would normally stay as we like trees and distant neighbors, but it does […]


Busman’s Holiday to the Utah Grand Prix

I am posting this from the Grand Canyon while we are having morning coffee.  Technology can be a groovy thing, can’t it?  Rather than flying out like I did last year, we decided to bring the entire family and make a holiday out of it.  We have traveled through, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, […]


The Mitty Challenge at Road Atlanta 2010

For me, the Mitty arrives at a precarious time.  Its at the beginning of the graduation season, which is a large source of income and a bigger drain of time for me.  I’m busy and geared up for a completely different form of photography.  I’m tired and cranky from non-stop hurry up and wait shooting. […]


Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach 2010 IZOD IndyCar

I am not sure what I think of these combined race weekends.  I don’t like how everything is compacted and I don’t know how to deal with some of the attitudes.  Some of the new drivers seem like the real deal, perhaps they will inject a bit of life into the series.  I will confess […]


Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach 2010 – ALMS

Long Beach.  Long flight back.  Not so bad going out, where did your day go coming home.  Its a street course, something I used to like; now I am not so certain, narrow lanes affording little passing.  Then there is the whole issue of the “main” series, the parade and posturing.  I grew up in […]


Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring 2010

To me, Sebring is the start of the racing season.  Certainly we follow the Dakar and watch every televised minute of the 24 Hours of Daytona, but somehow they feel more like warmups.  Sebring is where it starts. Last year, our spot was too close to the zoo and we ended up surrounded by people […]


Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance 2010

Wow!  That was quite a trip.  We drove down to Florida on the 12th of March and didn’t return home from Sebring 12 Hours until late on March 21st.  A blast, in fact.  There were only 2 problems: One, we couldn’t just keep driving and Two, we didn’t have our dogs with us, which is […]


NASA-SE Winter Meltdown Weekend at CMP

Last weekend, the good folks at NASA-SE held their annual Winter Meltdown at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina.  Its the beginning of their season and is always well attended.  This year a few people from a bit further North didn’t make it down due to all of their snow, but when we arrived […]


Bad Rocketman

In December, I went to Road Atlanta to shoot NASA-SE Santa’s Toy Run.  One of the cars I photographed was Drew Ewing’s BMW M3 He recently made a video where he used some of my photography from the weekend. Not all of the stills are mine, but most of them are.   The video is […]


NASA-SE Santa’s Toy Run Weekend

The southeast region of the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) has an annual event at Road Atlanta called Santa’s Toy Run.   Aside from three days of racing, they collect toys for Toys For Tots.  If you bring a toy to the track for donation, admission is free.  A very good deal in my book. […]


The 2009 SVRA Atlanta Vintage Grand Prix

I think I can get into this vintage racing thing.  The cars are loud and fun.  What exactly is a Ginetta G4 you ask?  The drivers are interesting and accessible.  I have my run of the place and nobody is hitting me in the head with a 500mm in a T3 photo hole.  Its a photographic […]


The Most Petit Le Mans Of Them All (partie trois)

Saturday September 26, 2009 5:30AM EST-Race Day-Pounding rain on the roof of the RV.  I jumped out of bed and went outside to gather up our chairs and tables and make sure everything was under the awning and dry.  Back into bed, I contemplated my slightly damp state and wondered if I could get any […]


The Most Petit Le Mans Of Them All (partie deux)

Friday morning was another beautiful fall day in Georgia.  On tap was morning practice, the driver autograph session and in the afternoon, qualifying.  Personally, I’m not a collector of signatures.  I do have a few that I have kept: Jim Leyland, Ross Brawn, James Weaver, Efren Reyes.  I even have a poster from Laguna Seca […]
