Speed Week – Bonneville Salt Flats

30Aug10

One of the many hundreds of tents and RV's lining the perimeter of the race course at the Bonneville Salt Flats for the 2010 Speed Week in Wendover, Utah

The Bonneville Salt Flats is a place I’ve been to a few times, however never while any racing was going on.  It was quite the scene, very different from any auto race I’ve been to in the past, no frills, just insanely fast cars, as many RV’s as you’d see at Burning Man, vintage cars, vintage people, and…rednecks, lots and lots of rednecks.

Tour of Utah – Stage 3 – Miller Motorsports Park Time Trials

21Aug10

A racer about to overtake another through the Attitudes at Miller Motorsports Park during Stage 3 of the Tour of Utah

Another first for me, I’ve never shot photos of or seen a road bike time trials before.  I also have never seen this out on a road course for auto racing.  Yesterday was a really cool experience, I got to walk around the race track at Miller Motorsports Park.  It’s usually something you don’t get to do, the track is usually buzzing with race cars and motorcycles going 100+ miles an hour, the track is usually on lockdown.  As the most of the track was shut down for the general public due to the use of the perimeter road I decided to go out to help my friend Re Wikstrom run strobes while she was covering the event.  Since she didn’t really need them till the end of the race when the light got low, I got to shoot quite a bit.  It’s quite the different scene at the Tour of Utah Time Trial with such different gear, the crazy helmets, wheels, etc.  It’s very different visually and I’m glad I went.

Tour of Utah – Stage 2 – Thanksgiving Point to Mt. Nebo

19Aug10

Francisco Mancebo Perez and Ian Boswell climbing to the finish near the Mt. Nebo Summit in stage 2 of the Tour of Utah

Cycling isn’t exactly something I usually pay attention to, or shoot for that matter.  However, this summer has been one of shooting photos of things, sports, events that are new to me, or at least that I don’t usually cover professionally.  I headed up to the Mt. Nebo Summit today to shoot the second stage of the Tour of Utah cycling race.  Today’s stage was a pretty brutal climb of over 4,500 feet from Thanksgiving Point to Mt. Nebo Summit.  As I usually light 75% of my ski photos, I figure why not give it a go with this?  The clouds in the background were pretty dark and gloomy looking so this pretty well setup perfect for how I usually shoot cloudy day ski shots.

Subaru STI up on the Aspen Loop near Mt. Timpanogas

17Aug10

Julian Fohrman's Subaru WRX STI at Mt. Timpanogas, Utah

This photo, shot about 2 years ago in October of 2008 is one I simply forgot about until recently.  It wasn’t until recently that I met a local automotive photographer, Orlando Echeverria and reminded me about composites and how I could make this shot work better than when I shot it.  I had some issues with my flashes working on this shoot so the lighting wasn’t as even as I was hoping for.  Today, I opened it up, and did some work in photoshop to bring it closer to what I had in mind originally.  I’m pretty stoked to get out and shoot a bit more, things such as this.  Look for more to come.

Cheese rolling. The most ridiculous thing I’ve seen.

As I said, the most rediculous contest I’ve seen, and I’ve seen a lot of really dumb shit happen live!
Check out some footage from the Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling 2009.
