Last year was unbelievable. It was my fourth year as a full-time independent photographer, and definitely my most exciting and rewarding. I worked for clients that I used to dream of shooting for, and I got to cover some of the biggest stories of the year and meet some incredible people along the way. I am forever grateful to the folks who hire and trust me to tell stories with my camera, whether it be The New York Times covering the Charleston shootings or the Atlanta Falcons to show a behind the scenes of what it’s like to be a professional football player. I also got featured (twice!) by Instagram and blogged by them, helping me gain over 90k followers! It has been a great year for sure, but I definitely have a long way to go.
I made the short drive over to Talladega this weekend to cover the races. You can’t always count on the racing to be entertaining, like this weekend, but people and sights always deliver. Here is a selection of my favorite images from Saturday and Sunday. [Read more…] about Talladega for USA Today Sports
Here are few frames from my assignment on Sunday to cover the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked wandering through the tens of thousands of fans who flock here twice a year, but we did have a spectacular race in some of the most beautiful weather Alabama has to offer. Hopefully I’ll be back for the October edition. [Read more…] about Talladega for USA Today Sports
I don’t shoot much NASCAR anymore, but I wanted to share some photos I took a few years ago of Chase Elliott, who won his first NASCAR Nationwide race tonight at Texas Motor Speedway. It’s always pretty cool when you have the chance to photograph someone before they really make it. [Read more…] about From the Archives: Chase Elliott
I spent the past weekend (and about half of last week) in Daytona, Florida. I went down to cover the NASCAR Coke Zero 400, but I also took a little time to make a few images just for me. Above, Danica greets rabid fans during driver introductions.
