My Six Favorite Photos from Sea Otter Classic 2011

Big air tricks on Saturday afternoon.

This past weekend, I photographed one of my favorite events all year: bicycle racing and stunts at Sea Otter Classic.

I made some very nice pictures and was super happy with my work, as I tried new things and ideas while shooting. Like, as my buddy and great MotoGP photog Andrew Wheeler says, never spend more than 10 minutes in one spot and make the subject as small as possible...

I also hung out with the Specialized team and friends of mine that work for them and they are one badass, supercool company.

My Espresso Photo Blog.



So for a while, I have been wanting to start a photo blog purely for espresso and espresso-based things, so now I did.

Here is the link to my espresso photo blog: espressonic.tumblr.com

I'll still be posting here obviously, but there is for coffee stuff only.

Also, I've updated and changed around some stuff on my website: photographnic.com

Sunday in Santa Cruz.


Headed to Santa Cruz this afternoon with my good friend (and really talented drawing artist of robots and such) Natalie McKean.

I brought my Nikon D300 and a handful of lenses, as well as a handful of film for my F100.

More to come...
