I shoot racing every week most of the year. It’s hard to believe that after all that time, travels and file downloads that these photos are some of my favorites. I mean, i’m proud of most of them. I have to be, right? I think so.
Anyway, here they are! Enjoy and let me know what ones are your favorites!
Happy New Year!
It’s been great to see Will improve his oval craft the last few seasons. Will is one of the legends of our sport, racing history could never forget Will Power. After winning the 500 and creating moments like this, how could it?
The Thrill of victory!

I love this photo of Simon, it’s just so simple and classic. Simon is a badass driver and a great guy to clown with. Gotta love that guy!
Sebring Testing, maybe the best light I captured in a racing photo all year. -
I originally debated if turn 4 would be a good spot for the start of the race. I remember over thinking my situation and was debating on making a last-minute dash to a new location. I was so exhausted from all of the support series races earlier that day that I felt lazy and decided to stay. I’m glad I did. Probably the most unique crash photo I’ve ever captured. - Portland
I wanted to do something different for the start of this year’s Indy 500. Our staff has all bases covered, inside and outside turn 1,2,3 and 4. Why not the roof? The tilt-shift specialty lens gives a creative almost toy look to the shot.
I love this photo, Indycars are sexy, fast, loud, aggressive and somehow smooth all at the same time. This image proves that.
We build and wait the entire year for this moment. Drivers, crew members and engineers focus every second of every race for this opportunity to undisputedly claim they are the best. Scott Dixon – Car 9 crew, 2018 IndyCar series champions.
Courses like Mid-Ohio make for some of the most spectacular images of our season. This photograph of Will Power is my new favorite vantage point at the track. It’s not for everyone, in fact it’s a blurry mess. That’s what I like about it. I have plenty of sharp still ones, this one is different.
Texas motor speedway is always a race I look forward to. The evening light makes for stunning images we are only able to make in these conditions a few times a year. Their they go, racing into the sunset! Ahhh I love it.
There he was in the fountain after winning this year in Detroit. I yelled over to him “Ryan, hop up on that lion” Here you have it!
I really enjoy this photo of James in Toronto. The best thing about my job is the fact that I’m paid to make things look interesting. I jog around all day trying to do something fresh, hopping things, sneaking in cracks, laying on the ground and in this case taking an elevator until I reach the roof. It’s what I do.
Taking the winning driver of the Indy 500 has turned into one of my favorite pre-500 traditions. It’s exciting to be a part of the energy and history of wriggly field and the cubs organization.
Detroit is a great circuit for photographers who know how to take advantage of it. The water, trees and skyline add to some already visually stimulating images. This is one of my favorite locations of the season. Myself and other photographers have been attacked numerus years by Red-Winged Blackbirds shooting in this area. That makes this shot extra adventurous and rewarding to capture!
