UTI day at the drags! Sacramento Raceway hosted a full day of free food and free drag racing. What more can you ask for? It’s free! The guys that work there were great, and did a great job making sure everyone got a chance to run multiple times. Mark Hall and Harold Clark were key in making everything run smoothly. Great job guys.
90% shot with the 70-200, and the rest evenly divided between the 24-70 and the 14-24. I was playing around with longer exposures on the last few shots to show more of the motion and raw speed and power of these cars. I kind of wish I had run my car, but I also had a lot of fun taking photos too.
The Mother Hips at Harlows. Rose’s Pawn Shop opened. Never seen either band before, but I have heard tales of the Mother Hips before and they did not disappoint. Rose’s Pawn Shop and the Hips both were very entertaining, and the place was packed for both shows.
4 wide angle shots with the 14-24, a couple with the 24-70, and 5 with the 70-200. Most of my favorite shots were with the longer lens, as it was really hard to get a a piece of the stage. The first four shots are of Rose’s and the rest are the Hips. More photos can be found on my Facebook here.
Ride Fest 2012. Seriously cool Porsches from Niello Porsche and my friend Rob Payne. Great music. Serious mustache action. Lots of cool classics, muscle, imports, and euros. There were even some drifting RC cars which I tried to pan with and get some motion blur on, with varying degrees of success. Check out the rat rod too. Many more photos can be found here on FB.
Joe and Danielle got married in picturesque Magalia California at the Meadowbrook Ranch. They were married on the ‘Knoll to Eternity‘ which is a fitting name for such a beautiful place. Its an expansive grass lawn in the middle of a grove of old trees. There is a nearby reception area and an old house that appears to be built in the early 1900s perhaps around 1910 or 1920.
I have known Joe since I was in grade school, and I am confident in saying that he has a wonderful bride to spend the rest of his life with. Danielle is a wonderful girl and is a perfect fit for Joe. Take a gorgeous venue, and a couple very much in love and it makes for great photos. Thank you to both of you for sharing the day with us.
Best wishes and congratulations to both Joe and Danielle!
