A great start for 2016 for my photography portfolio, I covered my first major Motorsport event for Enjuku Racing and S3 Magazine. To nail the coverage even more than my previous photos at the Rolex I decided to rent out the mack daddy of lenses. A Canon 300mm 2.8L behemoth of a lens was acquired along with a Canon 24-70 mark 1 for the closer action shots. It was such an awesome experience to earn, to finally be a photographer at a major Motorsport event. Hopefully you guys enjoy the pictures, it definitely took awhile to sort though over 6000 photos and edit them. I really had time to do Sebring this year, but with finishing up my Audi and S2000 for the upcoming shows I’m close to broke. Until the next Rolex!

The weekend of the Rolex is finally here! Well, was, but my ears are still ringing from being so up close to brutal machines driving for 24 hours. This brings a total of 3 years straight coming to Daytona and camping out in the infield getting cold, wet, hot, and sleep deprived. Yes, it was amazing and I will do it all over again next year.

Finally was able to finish my photos of the Rolex 24 2014, can’t wait till next year to do it all over again.
Next week is the 52nd Rolex motorsport event. For 24 hours dozens of race cars invade the Daytona International Speedway with more than just turning left. Last year was my first Rolex and I was hooked! Can’t wait for some racekor noises next week, burnt burgers, beers, and camping out with friends in the in field. Tons of pictures and videos next weekend.
