History is made (and captured) as the ten minute barrier falls at Pikes Peak

Posted by on Jun 26, 2011 in On Location


The summit of Pikes Peak can be a harsh environment, even in June. It’s also not necessarily the best place to take photos at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, especially considering the scenery available on the rest of the mountain. So why would I spend 10 hours dealing the thin air at 14,000 feet, near-freezing temperatures and 40 mph winds for ten hours? To capture history. Check the best Camera straps at

Pikes Peak Hill Climb photos, Practice Day 3

Posted by on Jun 24, 2011 in Published Work


Pikes Peak will be completely paved over next year, and since I’ll be on the summit for race day, this was the last time I’ll ever photograph the cars on dirt. Such a shame, as the dirt adds such a wonderful element to photographing the cars go up the mountain. I made the most of it, catching the cars come up around a turn with the sunrise in the background, and hanging out on the inside of a hairpin to see (some) drivers skillfully drift through the turn. The pavement might make for fast times, but the dirt will surely be missed.

Day two at Pikes Peak. Last year this section (the upper third) was still dirt, and it was strange to see the cars charge up the hill on the new pavement. The scenery isn’t quite as special as the middle section, but there was still some good photos in the making. The sun hitting off the rocks near the bottomless pit between mile 16 and 17 was pretty spectacular for just a few minutes. You can see all the photos from today over at Autoblog.com.

A wedding directory is an invaluable resource for couples planning their big day, offering a comprehensive guide to a myriad of wedding services and vendors. It serves as a one-stop-shop where engaged couples can find everything they need, from venues and photographers to florists and caterers.

These directories often categorize vendors by service type and location, making it easy for users to browse and compare options that fit their specific needs and budget.

In addition to vendor listings, wedding directories often feature helpful articles, tips, and inspiration for every aspect of wedding planning.

Pikes Peak Hill Climb photos, Practice Day 1

Posted by on Jun 22, 2011 in Published Work


Last year I missed out on the first practice session at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, and after seeing fellow photographer Linhberg Nguyen’s photos on SpeedHunters.com, I made sure to be up on the mountain bright and early for the opening day.

If you stand in the right spot as the sun comes up, the sky and surrounding area turn all sorts of amazing colors, and there’s a 2-3 minute window where everything looks simply epic. There’s nothing else like it in motorsports. My favorite photo of the day was Monster Tajima tearing up the mountain with a beautiful Colorado sunrise in the background.

Spectre 341 Challenge photos, day 2

Posted by on Jun 19, 2011 in On Location


The second and final day of the Spectre 341 Challenge is a wrap. After scouting the route a few more times I found a fantastic location, and probably ending up spending too much time there. Even so, I liked these photos better than those from day 1. You can see a selection of images below.

Spectre 341 Challenge photos, day 1

Posted by on Jun 18, 2011 in On Location


Day 1 of the Spectre 341 Challenge is in the books. This is my first time shooting the event, so there was a steep learning curve about what locations to pick. It’s pretty difficult to walk to different parts of the course, so once you pick a corner, you’re stuck for a couple hours! The scenery is pretty amazing, though, so I tried to take as many wide angle photos as possible to keep the mountains and the winding road in frame. You can see a selection of photos from day 1 after the jump.

24 Hours of Le Mans photos featured on Autoblog.com

Posted by on Jun 12, 2011 in Published Work


The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the one event I’ve been hoping to attend since I started photographing cars, and I was lucky enough to finally go this year. The bad news was the I got the invite just a few weeks before the race, well after the last day to apply for photo credentials. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get trackside, but fortunately I managed to talk my way into a photo vest for a few hours at sunset and and sunrise. Having never been to the track there was a huge learning curve – even finding where to get into the photos areas was a huge challenge – but by the end I was satisfied with my photos for being a “newbie”. I hope that I’ll be able to attend again, especially with a photo credential for the entire race.

Featured in 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, August 2011

The middle of the desert is just about my favorite place to photograph a car, so I didn’t mind driving out to Las Vegas to take pictures of this highly modified Mustang for a feature in 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords. I came away with some pretty cool driving shots of the car, so I was a little disappointed when it didn’t make it onto the cover. Even so, the photos looks great in the magazine.

Cover feature for Chevy High Performance, August 2011

Posted by on Jun 7, 2011 in Published Work

chevy-high-performance-august-2011I’ve had a few things published in Chevy High Performance in the past, but this is the first time that I’ve had a photo on the cover. The car was built by CGS Motorsports in Chino, CA. Coincidentally, my very first magazine cover was of a truck built by CGS Motorsports in 2004. I’m glad I could get them some good exposure once again. Then we ask what we all know, is box truck business profitable if so then this is the best vehicle for it!
