Its amazing at what type of beauty I see everyday in my travels around town, the state, the country and even the world. Good thing I brought my camera!

Canon 1Dx, 70-200mm, 800iso, f5.6, 1/1000th, Manual The first car of the day, Jeff Zwart in a Porsche GT3 Cup races up the mountain through the glare of the rising sun.

A few weeks ago I found out I would be covering my first Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Naturally I was super excited about the gig but also nervous. I had never shot Pikes Peak before so I had no clue where to go and what to do. Luckily at the last minute I got invited to shoot a testing session with some teams on the mountain. Sweet!

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.

After a few weeks of shooting only NBA and NFL it was good to get back out to a race track for what is my last motorsports event of 2010, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) finale. With the race only being a 10 minute drive from my house I gotta say I was excited for the weekend. It did not disappoint.
