I had the pleasure of shooting Supercross again this year in San Diego for the 2013 season at Qualcomm Stadium.

Here are a few shots. I was using a slow shutter speed and panning technique on these photos (as well as a wide aperture f2.8) to get an even more out of focus and blurry background. You will also notice that the spokes on the wheels are blurry as opposed to when you use a fast shutter speed that freezes the spokes. It adds an element of movement and as well as speed.

I think I was at about 1/160th of a second (pretty slow for such a fast sport). As you can see however with the right technique you can get some pretty cool results.

I’m a little backlogged in the blog image posting department but here are some photos from the Charger vs Ravens game this past NFL season. Who knew at the time that Baltimore would then go on to win the Superbowl.

There was a pretty good size swell today. So I went out and played with my new toy in the shore break and got these photos.
There were some 6-12ft face waves pounding me into the sand.
It was Fun!!!

Here are some images I took recently of a local San Diego Pro, Chad Bennett. We shot at Maderas Golf Club in Poway, CA which is in North San Diego County.

Most golf images you see in golf magazines whether it be article or ad are very conservative. While this has been the trend in golf for many years due to the demographic of the consumers, the tide is slowly turning. You are starting to see young golfers expressing themselves with bold colors and unique clothing. As a result you are starting to see the same trends in the pro shops and sports specialty stores with the golf merchandise.

That being said I think my style of photography fits the new style we are seeing in golf, so in trying to bring something different to the sport I created some gritty, edgy, black and white images.

I used a 3 speedlight set up in each image during late afternoon sun. The locations of the lights varied based on the location on the golf course and the direction of the sun. To achieve that “Advertising Look” I used the lights to sculpt my subject and create specific shadows.

The Hurley Pro, ASP World Tour, Surf Contest at Trestles in Southern California is coming up in a couple of weeks. The week of September 18th.

I thought I would post a few photos I shot from last year, just to peak the anticipation a little.

Dane Reynolds Launching. This is by far one of the biggest airs I've seen in person. The photo doesn't quite do it justice as seeing it in real life.
