Kyle Busch wins the SHARPIE 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway!
Kyle Busch was able to hang around the Top 5, and when it was time to go……guess what, he went! (continue reading…)
I LOVE Bristol Motor Speedway! The Night Race in August has a “Medieval” feel to it. There is no other race on the Series that really compares to it. I was unable to get to the Track in time to shoot either of the practices for this weekend, but I was able to get there in time to shoot Qualifying. It is mostly portraits, but that is really all one can get during the Qualifying. I can’t wait for the race tomorrow night. (continue reading…)
I went down to the Panther’s Trainng camp on Friday. It was a 9:10am Practice, so I had to get up at 4:30am………not my favorite time of day to do at all. But I really wanted to cover it because I am excited about the Team this year. So here it is, please check it out. (continue reading…)
I love Football. I grew up right outside of Washington DC, so when I was brought home for the Hospital, my Mom had me wrapped in a Burgandy and Gold blanket. Needless to say that I love the Redskins, but I also love my hometown team……..The Carolina Panthers. I had a chance to start to shoot the NFL about 4 years ago, and needless to say, I jumped at the chance. It was a nice departure from racing, plus it gave me a chance to spread out into other Sports. The other great thing about it, is the fact that I do not have to travel far to shoot games, just 20 mintues and I am at the stadium. I love it!
This is the first time that I have ever shot a Training Camp, and I felt some frustration while doing it. It seems as if the Panthers Organization is very strict on where they will let photographers go during the actual practice sessions. It became a trick to get any kind of images at all. I felt as if I was missing something, but since this was my first camp, I decided not to push the issue. I am excited about the upcoming Season. There are onle 3 home games that conflict with my racing schedule, and one of the races I think I can shoot on Saturday Night, get back from Richmond and still shoot the Sunday game. Well, here is what I got from camp. Please tale a look and let me know what you think.
Peace, Sam (continue reading…)
