Realizing that its been quite a while since I posted anything new, I’ve finally let my conscience get the best of me and decided to share some photos from a recent shoot. About a year ago, I met the official photographer Hummer’s off-road racing team, John Pappenfort. John’s a great photographer and was nice enough to get me in as the second team photographer for the recent “Vegas to Reno” race put on by Best in the Desert Racing Association.
It was a great couple days! Using radio and GPS, we chased the race trucks for 12+ hours, setting up on the track and shooting the whole time. At night I set up strobes and experimented with the artificial light in the pits with good results (see the first two photos below).
By the end of it, my cameras were pure white with dust (no kidding). The race ended with three out the four Hummers finished first in their class with over 200 vehicles in the race.
