Looking Back

Once upon a Time, there was the Year 2014. When a new Year starts, you don’t know what will happen to you, or what it’ll bring to you. In my case the year ended not quite nicely. But I moved on. I remembered to myself: “Stop saying I wish, I would – Do it. Do what ever […]

Best of Campbell 2015

December 1st, 2014 I had moved back to New York, shot a few events and bought myself a new camera.  But 2015 is when I became an official Life Blaster and things really started getting interesting. It was snowing in NY that March so my first event for the year I escaped the cold and went […]

International Motorcycle Show

On December 13th I found my way to the Jacob Javits Convention Center in NYC.  This place has been one of the single biggest and sought-after locations for conventions, trade shows, and events since 1986.  Popular events like the International Auto Show and Comic Con are held here every year.

Best of Bohan 2015

Benicia, California: Another year, another tally mark on the wall of life. In many ways, 2014 had been the worst year of my life, so I was happy when January 1st, 2015 came around. I was nearing the end of my 1980 CB650 build, and on a rainy January night I rolled it outside in […]

Best of Lapinski 2015

As the sun sets on 2015 I find myself going through photos that I feel are the best ones I have taken over the past year. Thing is I hate most of them. Might sound dumb but it is a way of growing and hopefully building off what you did wrong and becoming a stronger […]

Best of Delaney 2015

The beginning of 2015 was a first for me. Usually I spend New Years at home and go to sleep about five minutes after the ball drops in New York. But this year I watched the new year come in surrounded by thousands of people at the base of the Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. For me, […]

The Race of Gentlemen

We’re finally approaching the winter season and that usually means less car events.  Luckily for me one day fellow Blaster Eric Delaney messaged me about this east coast event called “The Race of Gentlemen”, a.k.a. T.R.O.G, in Wildwood, NJ.  Without hesitation I found the event website, watched a short video on the event and once […]

Straight Outta the Camera

Being able to have amazing photos come straight out of the camera is a goal a lot of photographers aspire toward. But what if I told you there’s no such thing as “straight out of the camera?” Film photographers know this very well, and must face a series of decisions every time they develop and […]

SCCA Rally Sprint at Team O’Neil Rally School

Back in September I found myself on the road again.  This time I was headed up to New Hampshire, specifically to Team O’Neil Rally School for the SCCA’s 2nd Rally Sprint.  About 6, almost 7 hours and the final stop?  A parking lot in Littleton, NH where early tech was supposed to take place, the night […]

Historic Festival 33 at Lime Rock

After my two week adventure to Texas, for Formula Drift with Bohan, I had another event lined up that I’ve been waiting to get to.  Just a few hours northwest in Connecticut during the first weekend of September is when you’ll find Lime Rock Park flooded with historic cars as old as 1920, running up […]

Car Week: Detroit Style

Most people know about Car Week, or have at least seen photos from it. The week before the Monterey Historic races and Pebble Beach, Carmel and Monterey are overrun with the most exotic cars in the world. McLaren P1s and LaFerraris can be seen on every block, and some the of the most desirable and […]

One More Time at FD Texas

That’s me in NYC on August 17th at about midnight, if I remember correctly.  What am I doing here at this time?  The answer is simple.  I have a West Coast friend who has an obsession with hitting all 50 states, needs to shoot Formula Drift in Texas, but has a few states to hit […]

Scenes From the North Woods

Northern Minnesota is a peaceful, relaxing place. A place where you can go to get away from it all. See the headwaters of the Mighty Mississippi River and in the of August watch rally cars blast through these lazy dirt roads with the arrival of the Rally America Ojibwe Forests Rally. I made the three […]

Bohan’s Epic Journey

PROLOGUE When I was in second grade, my classmates and I “wrote” books about ourselves. I use the term loosely because really we just filled out forms for each page. One of my pages was, “I want to go to Asia  because I have never been there  .” That way of thinking is at the […]

Scenes from Gatebil

Gatebil at Rudskogen in July is often billed as the biggest drifting festival in the world, but really it’s so much more than that. In addition to watching drifting, spectators can get rides with drivers or hire one of the Gatebil drift taxis, peruse the various vendor booths, load up on more food and drink […]

Genesis

The following story was originally published in 2010 on OMGDrift.com, but in retrospect its the very first Life Blasters story. Geoff and I came up with the concept and the name while we were driving through Yosemite on the way to Vegas. Covering events was one thing, but we needed an outlet to post our […]

American Rallycross

There’s nothing like having many photographers and race car drivers as friends.  One day I get a message from follow photographer Ian Pouliot, of Nemesis Photography, asking “Hey!  You want to shoot American Rallycross on July 1st?”  As it turns out, Gary De Masi, usually spotted running his Ford Ranger rally truck, was working with […]
