Go Explore

It’s easy to sit back at home watching TV or playing a game on your phone and let life pass you by. In this day and age, there is always something going on somewhere. But will the trip be worth your time? Your money? Will you regret going out? What if something happens you weren’t expecting? Would you be ok missing it? Whether you go out and decide to explore life, the one thing you have to remember is that you never know what can happen. Your plans might be pretty straight forward and planned out, but life can throw in a curve ball and change everything.

Attending last week’s Sonoma Drift event was an exploring mission of my own. And I couldn’t be happier for taking it on. Not only did I get a chance to photograph some local amateur drifters, but I also got to photograph and watch a Formula Drift Pro do his thing. Funny thing is that I didn’t even know it was him till a day or two later, and although the FD3S looked strikingly similar to the Falken Tire FD, I chalked it up that it belonged to a local amateur.

Turns out I was half right. Car belonged to a local, but it wasn’t an amateur driver. The man behind the wheel was FD Pro Driver Calvin Wan. Could this be Calvin preparing for a FD comeback? Or just out having some Wednesday night fun? Either way it was great to see him out there and hope its not the last time.

Sonoma Drift 8-14-13

Its been quite some time that I have been wanting to check out this weekly event my local track holds. Every week however, something got in the way or came up that kept me from making it out to Wednesday’s Sonoma Drift. Finally, I had a day off and was not going to let anything get in the way of me making it out. It was definitely worth the trip out. Felt great to finally shoot motorsports again and see how the local talent was. Even got a chance to capture an FD pro which will come in a future post. With another week until the next event, here’s a few photos from last week’s outing.

Sliding Through 2012 Part 1

2012 was the first year I got to experience drifting live and in person. It was also the first time I got to photograph it. Although I only had the opportunity to shoot two rounds of Formula D and one round of XDC Drift, I still had a great time at all three events. I got to try some things I’ve always wanted to (photography wise), learned a few new things (still have A LOT to learn), and most of all, got to experience something some may never experience. I usually posted a few photos after each event, but now with some down time I’ve been able to go back through my massive collection of photos and pick a few more out that missed my eye. This is Part 1 of those undiscovered photos.
