Bright Lights and Fast Cars

Singapore’s Formula One Grand Prix is something special. 2013 was my first time attending. Not to wax poetic about it, but it will take your breath away. Especially if you can find some perspective over the track; The singapore flyer, or one of the many hotels that look over the circuit and skyline are good places to start. As the sun slowly sets over Asia, the thousand lights lining the circuit slowly start to overpower the natural ambient light, and the track comes to life before your eyes. Those fleeting moments that the sky is filled with purple and blues, and the Singapore skyline is a painting of neon lights, and the track becomes ever more defined with each passing second, is truly something special to witness.  Read More…

The Bar Fight at Monza

Ferrari. Monza. Tifosi.

These are names that echo with nouns that define the sport of Formula 1. For 63 years, Formula One has made Monza the temple of speed. The cathedral of fast, loud cars. The worship center for legions of fans who show up for the last hurrah of Formula One’s European calendar. As quickly as the circus shows up in Italy, it’s gone again. Off to far away Singapore.

GT Showdown at VIR

Who doesn’t love a proper GT sportscar show down?!? And VIR was a classic. Watching the race unfold around this undulating raceway was a joy to behold both audibly & visually. Each car belting a unique noise from it’s exhaust for several hours on Sunday afternoon. The final lap battle between Falken Porsche and Risi Competizione Ferrari was something really special, and reminds us all why, you shouldn’t fix something that isn’t broken…..

Personally, I cannot wait to be standing in the brisk fall air at Road Atlanta for 10 hours on Saturday afternoon in early October.   Read More…

Kevin “Two Pack” Conway

The Lamborghini Super Trofeo series is a family.

Over the last year and one month that I have been working as the full time series photographer, I have grown to know and love the people that I see on race weekends around North America. We are a traveling family unit. Drivers, mechanics, team owners, hospitality employees. Everyone plays a part. We share in each other’s struggles and triumphs. Though some of the Lamborghini family I call closer than others, but Change Racing, Lamborghini Carolinas and driver, Kevin Conway have become some of my closest friends. It’s always a laugh with this crew. Read More…

A Monkey with a Knife

It’s Thursday morning driver’s briefing at Mosport (now called Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) in the always lavish Lamborghini hospitality tent. IMSA’s race officials delicately tell the drivers as they sip coffee and take bites of egg and sausage, that  you can think of this track like a “monkey with a knife…..never turn your back on it.” Those kind of words will ruin your appetite quickly. Mosport is fast. It’s got elevation change. It’s got everything you might need to create great racing, but will strike, and strike hard if you don’t respect it.

Change Needed at Altitude

Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is one event I always look forward to on my annual calendar. It’s an event like none other on the globe. The 14,115 ft mountain is my canvas to do as I wish. It is refreshing. Fun. Exhausting. Frustrating. Dangerous. Nearly every emotion that could be thrown at a person in one week is something you are guaranteed to feel on this mountain. Read More…

Nothing Like The First

As a photographer, it is our job to capture the emotions of a sport. A time and place that will never happen again. Drivers come and go. They get wins. Lose races. Crash. But the moment that always comes with the most emotion is the first win. Every win thereafter will always pale in comparison to the raw energy of the first. Read More…

These Colors Don’t Run….

With waves crashing against the seawall outside the harbor on a beautiful Friday afternoon in Monaco, Three young Americans sat down to talk. Road and Track’s Jamey Price, a young photographer working on getting a foot in the door of the F1 photography world and covering his first Monaco Grand Prix. The other two? Conor Daly from Indiana and Alexander Rossi from California, drivers aiming for F1 and currently competing in F1’s feeder series, GP2. Over and over, these young drivers are asked many of the same questions about their racing careers and future goals. But with both of them being America’s best chance for an F1 driver in the coming years, we wanted to get to know them as people. Read More…

Full Circle

A sharp sound pierces the sunny Mediterranean skies as the noise echoes across the buildings around me. A car comes flying into view and I desperately try to pan with it as it screams off into the Monaco tunnel. I’m 21 years old and sitting in the grandstand with my dad across from Portier, one of Monaco’s many famous corners. It’s qualifying day for the Monaco Grand Prix 2008. With my eye stuck to the viewfinder for the next 2 days, I attempt to photograph F1 and GP2 cars at speed around the principality. It was the first time I photographed anything with my camera. I was brand new at it. Never even had an an interest in photography really. I was just playing around. But I knew that I was enjoying what I was doing with the camera and the race cars, even though looking back at the pictures, I wasn’t terribly successful at it. Read More…

The Drop

At this point, there aren’t too many tracks in the USA that I haven’t been to. But prior to this weekend, one of the best ones I had yet to visit was Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway and it’s infamous corkscrew. Read More…
