Archive for April, 2012
I was excited about helping the local newspaper photograph one of the biggest events to take place at the legendary Rockingham Speedway. The last NASCAR event at “The Rock” was a Cup Series race on Feb. 22, 2004. Current track owner, Andy Hillenburg, purchased the track at auction four years ago and has done an amazing job of restoring the track and promoting the return of NASCAR. This was the first Camping World Truck Series race to be hosted at Rockingham Speedway and I doubt that it will be the last. The April 15th event drew the second largest crowd of the season and fans were provided a great race. Congratulations to Kasey Kahne for winning the race, but the real winner is Hillenburg.
During a visit to the Outerbanks of North Carolina is was out during sunset capturing the clouds of a storm moving to the north. The wind was swift, but helped keep the storm away and let the sun peep in and out of the clouds. As I had my tripod positioned on a dock a gentleman approached me to ask question about photography. After a brief introduction and conversation about my setup he asked if I would be willing to shoot some photos of his children. Unfortunately it was too dark and I didn’t have my flash set up with me at the time. However, we made plans to meet the next morning for some photos on the beach. I was more than happy to spend some time shooting beach portraits of this family from Richmond VA.
Taylor and her family were visiting from Georgia and came prepared to pose for senior photos. I had a great time with Taylor and her family as we shot photos for a couple of hours one evening.
I enjoyed shooting a few photos of two great friends. It’s about time that these high school lovers tie the knot.
I am glad to have been able to provide a few photos for promotional use for the Gene McLaurin for NC Senate campaign. http://www.genemclaurin.com/
It’s always a pleasure to shoot photos of Sam and Summer. It was fun bringing in some props to the Hamlet Depot and setting up several scenes.
