Ask any NHRA driver what the race they most want to win is and I bet 95% of the drivers would say the US Nationals in Indianapolis. The “Big Go” as it is commonly referred to brings out the largest pro fields of the year. That plus the fact I hadn’t been at a drag race for over a month had me quite anxious to get to Indy!

After months of traveling to the Olympics in the back of my mind, the day finally came to board the plane to London for my second summer Olympics.
A few months ago at NHRA pre-season testing at West Palm Beach I rented a helicopter to do some aerial photography. It was a learning experience that made for some good shots but also left me anxious to get in the air and do it again. This time at an actual NHRA race! Get ready for liftoff…
Just over a month ago I packed my suitcases and flew to West Palm Beach, Florida for a week of NHRA preseason testing. I was working for several clients so it would be one hell of a busy week for me.
At the beginning of January I made my first flight of the year up to Indianapolis to shoot portraits of the 2012 Aarons NHRA drivers.
Here is a new category for my Best Of galleries. While everyone seems to know me only as a sports photographer I like to shoot pretty pics once in awhile as well. So here are some of my favorite scenery pics of 2011. Enjoy!
Usually when I know I am going to Utah I start to cry. This time though I was excited to get there as I would be shooting high flying Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) as they would be making their first ever stop at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, UT.
After being scared to death while flying in an R-22 helicopter a few weeks ago, I jumped at the chance to get back in the air in a more worthy helicopter. One of my friends had a hook up with the Los Angeles County Fire Department Air Operations and invited me to come out and spend a day with the fire department and to do some flying. I am guessing that aerial photography is most likely the only reason I would ever want to be in the back of a rescue helicopter. Lets do this!
