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 final round of the 2015 Rally America National Championship; The Lake Superior Performance Rally. Brought with it crisp fall temperatures and wonderful colors. For the second year in a row I made the trip to cover the event, It rained and even snowed for most of the ride up. I was hoping it wouldn’t […]
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 […]
There’s really no way to accurately describe the weekend we experienced in Maine for the New England Forest Rally. It was two days of awesome racing and awesome cars. Alex flew out to Chicago and met me outside of Detroit. We then drove through Canada to New Hampshire where we planned on staying the night. […]
Rally has always been an adventure for me. This year’s second round of the Rally America Championship – the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood – was no different. With cold temps and snow in the forecast I hopped in the car and made the 10 hour drive from Minneapolis to Salem, Missouri, to check […]
Sno Drift, an event I look forward to every year, traveling up north to stand in the middle of the forest to watch a bunch of cars race by every minute or so. But this year was different. Very different. I’m sure some people have seen articles about the event talking about the possible downfall […]
Well that’s it for 2014. I have a tendency after about a month to no longer like photos I have taken. This is how I hopefully continue to improve; take mistakes and build from them. I have grown an interest in photographing sunsets in 2014, so here is the one that turned out the best.
Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]
Another year, another Best Of post. I’ll start this off with Rude’s guitarist shredding the Gilman in Berkeley.
I have to start by saying this year’s 100 Acre Wood may be one of the best Rally America events in recent times. Not just because of a few notable names, but also due to the almost perfect weather and roads. Last year there was still snow, like we didn’t get enough of that at […]
2014 marks the beginning of another season of the Rally America Championship. Held in northern Michigan during the last weekend of January, the date ensures the roads will have a nice covering of snow to always mix things up. The big news going into this year’s SnoDrift Rally was the return of Travis Pastrana and […]
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 […]
The final round of the 2013 Rally America season took place in the top of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula around towns of Houghton and L’Anse. The championship battle at the beginning of the rally was down to only 17 points between Higgins and Block, so there was sure to be tension in the air. Block won […]
It’s another month, which means another rally. Here we are now in Newry, Maine for the New England Forest Rally. Antoine L’Estage was looking for his fourth consecutive win at this Rally, David Higgins was looking to extend his lead this season, and Ken Block was out to do whatever it took to make that […]
Another day, another rally. The fourth round of the Rally America series took place in the hilly countryside of Pennsylvania, aroundd around the picturesque little town of Wellsboro. Every year the town gets ready for the influx of flat four boxers and rowdy fans.
It’s been a year now since Alex and I started shooting rally. It was right here in the foothills of Mt. Hood where our adventure began and it felt great to be back to do it again. I’d been wanting to shoot Rally America for years, ever since I was doing vinyl work for Works […]
Rally America has seven stops for their championship season and the first stop is in the northern part of Michigan in the dead of winter. You expect everything to be covered in snow and the temperatures to be cold enough to slap you in the face, and you’d be correct. What you don’t expect is […]
