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 […]

Aasbø and Irwindale

Destiny is a funny thing, especially when you notice a pattern and start expecting things to turn out certain ways. It almost never goes the way you think it will, or the way you think it should. We begin to understand that the outcome that makes the most sense is probably the least likely to happen, […]

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 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 […]

Luck Rains Down at FD Orlando

So where were we? In Atlanta, Odi Bakchis had won his first event and took the lead away from Fredric Aasbø, Ken Gushi had returned to the podium for the first time since 2009, and Chris Forsberg found his rhythm, getting back into the championship race. Daigo Saito and Tanner Foust were still unimpressive in their new […]

Breakfast at See See’s

As I mentioned in my bit on The Modern Man a few months ago, Portland has a very unique and cohesive art aesthetic. Thor Drake and George Kassapakis wrapped their passion for motorcycles and love of coffee seamlessly into Portland’s art vibe and artisanal craftsman culture and came away with something special: See See Motor […]

Formula D Long Beach and Decade #2

Thirty-one. Including this year’s Formula D Long Beach, that’s how many rounds I’ve been to now. It’s not even half of all the rounds there have been, and I still feel like a newbie around all the people who have been there longer than I have. I have been around more than most people though, […]

Golden Gate Drift Round 1: Rain and Russians

It was a dark and stormy day in Stockton, as drivers from all over northern California made their way to the quarter-mile oval that is Stockton 99 Speedway. It was the beginning of a new Golden Gate Drift ProAm season, where veterans and rookies alike would test their mettle and see if they had what […]

Formula D Thailand

Formula Drift is quickly becoming the world’s dominant family of professional drifting events. From its humble beginnings hatched as a result of the experience Jim Liaw and Ryan Sage had with producing D1GP in 2003 at Irwindale, it grew into something serious enough to attract drivers from all over North America as well as Europe […]

Best of Bohan 2013

I think Joe mentioned once that whenever he puts together a best-of-the-year post he hates his previous year’s best photos. That’s a good goal to have as it would indicate growth as a photographer. I don’t hate all my 2012 stuff, but I do think my selections from 2013 are a lot better. Most of […]

Speeding Kills Bears: Yosemite on Fire

When one normally pictures Yosemite Valley National Park they think of the majestic rock faces and the abundance of crisp natural beauty. The sheer impact of Yosemite’s artistry attracts tourists worldwide with an average of 4 million visitors a year, and on any given weekend the park’s 1,169 square miles of forest are flooded with […]

Bash To The Future

    Before an image has been seen or a paragraph read, let it be known that each and every sentence, word, and syllable has been drawn from the deep, dark, and mysterious mind of a spawn of teh intarwebz. The mind of Kyle Pope. This is not a story or an article as much […]

86Fest II

How could I pass up going to 86Fest, the biggest AE86/FR-S/BRZ show in North America? Antonio Alvendia called me up to see if I could shoot it, and I had a free weekend and enough other reasons to spend a couple days in LA, so I took the opportunity when it came to me!

Wall Stadium

Just a few miles from the Jersey Shore there lies a 63 year old 1/3 mile circle track in the township of Wall, New Jersey. Just as close to Philadelphia as it is to New York, Wall Stadium Speedway was built by racing fans Tom and Jennie Nicol in 1950. Unheard of at the time, the track […]

Golden Gate Drift ProAm Round 2

Just a week after Formula D held its second round of competition, it was time for Golden Gate Drift ProAm to do the same. Chris Mills, Jeff Wolfson, and Joe Amies came back to defend their top positions in the standings, while other drivers came back to see if they could take their spots. A […]
