A little over a week ago I was notified that I had won the 2008 Motorsports Photographer of the Year by the National Motorsports Press Association (NMPA). It is the second time in the last three years that I was fortunate enough to win the title. On top of Photographer of the Year I won my first Photo of the Year award for my shot of the drag boat crash. Continue on to see more of the images from my portfolio.

My busy schedule hasn’t allowed me to shoot one of my favorite sports, Drag Boat Racing, in over a year so when I actually had a few days off, with the worlds fastest boats in town, it was an event I was not gonna miss. Some of my favorite career photos have taken place while covering the 250mph fiberglass boats skipping across the water, this weekend would provide me more wild images.

So after shooting 13 NASCAR races around the country it finally came down to my 14th and final race of the season in sunny Miami for the championship race. With Jimmie Johnson having a gigantic points lead I would spend most of my weekend trying to get as many different angles of him as possible since the championship would be his third straight, tying him with NASCAR legend Cale Yarborough as the only driver to three peat, and would be good for sales.

With my insanely too busy schedule these days I rarely get the chance to shoot smaller sports, so when the chance presents itself I go nuts and do my best to produce interesting imagery. Continue on to see what I came up with in my three days in Sin City.

One of the most commonly asked about shots I’ve taken is without a doubt the Mike Mason remote shot I did at the 2006 Summer X Games in Los Angeles. With these past few weeks being free from shoots I figured I’d do a write up about this shoot with some behind the scenes stuff.

On a very rare weekend in town with nothing for me to do, I got a hold of my buddy Lina. After finding out she was just as bored, we met up to toy around with more studio stuff. This time we would shoot indoors. I was fully expecting to crash and burn since I had never really done a three lighting set up. Continue reading to see how this turns out.

Only in the world of NASCAR can the driver who finished second be called the winner while the driver who finished first be called the 18th place finisher. Sound a bit confusing? Continue reading to see how that happens.

After a late night shooting NFL the previous day it was a 45 minute flight over to Ontario, CA to shoot my first nascar race in nearly two months. While this race is typically one of the most boring races of the year I continue to go because of the great light. I wasn’t disappointed!
