Canon 1Dx, 70-200mm, 100iso, f8, 1/250th, Manual with Strobes Canon 1Dx, 70-200mm, 100iso, f8, 1/250th, Manual with Strobes NHRA funny car driver Matt Hagan sits in the cockpit of his 2014 Rocky Boots sponsored Dodge during a portrait shoot at Don Schumacher Racing.

Very few sports have the visual appeal that drag racing has. Colorful cars with loud fire spewing engine shaking the ground as they go from zero to 330mph in less than four seconds is nothing short of amazing. I am a lucky guy to cover the sport for a living that I grew up a fan of. Continue on to check out my favorite blog of the year…

Every year I make the hour flight over to lovely Albuquerque, New Mexico to cover the New Mexico Bowl. Like many people, I’m sure you haven’t heard of the New Mexico Bowl but I assure you its always a fun event to cover as a photographer thanks to it being a day game outdoors. To someone who spends most of his time covering football at night or in a dome, its a huge deal! Continue on to check out the incredible game!
