p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Motorcycle Roadracing Amidst Spectacular Scenery


At the end of the 2011 season, I discontinued my motorsports photography (along with my own racing), mostly because of cost and time issues. I sold my 300mm f/2.8 and my 600mm f/4, and sold my 1D Mark 4 and bought a 5D Mark 3.

The racing club I shot for previously (at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah) found themselves without a regular photographer this season, and asked me if I wanted to come back and shoot some more. I told them that I really didn't have the same gear setup as before, but that I'd help them out for the first couple of rounds of the season. I wasn't sure what to expect from the 5D Mark 3. It certainly has an amazing AF system, though it doesn't shoot at 10 FPS like the 1D did.

I really didn't think my 70-200 f/2.8 IS II would get me close enough to the action, even with my 1.4x and 2x TC's, so I rented a 300 f/2.8 for the weekend - one of my all-time favorite lenses. I must say that I came away really impressed with the capability of the 5D Mark 3 as well!

April and May have always been my favorite time of year to shoot at Miller, for obvious reasons. The backdrops are really quite stunning. Here are some examples from this past weekend:

9






10






11 (most of the above were from Sunday - you can see that Saturday's weather was a little different!)

#11 to me is awesome. Wish for a little tighter crop to eliminat the line on the left and person standing on the right.

There is a killer background in some of the pictures. The mountains with snow is just spectacular.

Killer shots! Nice to see another motorcyclist here. I'd love to share some of mine as well-is there a specific board for cars/autos/racing etc? What do you ride?

Thanks! My current ride is a 2010 Ducati Multistrada. I've owned and raced a bunch of different bikes over the years - most recently an Aprilia RSV-4R, a bunch of different Ducatis and Hondas.

Great presentation, #1 really set the mood in a great way. A beautiful place to be. I like the a last one a lot too. Looks like that place is a great place for landscape and sports pictures. The only one I don't really like is #9, I don't like to see the backs.

Fantastic images....love em...

I shoot a lot of Motorsport, Action Sport/Football ,.Ive got a 1D4 & a 7d,...thinking about buying a new body ,...
FPS aside....do you think the 5D3 is a worthy body as a 2nd body to my 1D4 ??

Ive found my 7D a bit hit n miss but the 1D4 is awsome....dont think I can justify a 1DX at this stage...

I think it'd be a brilliant second, I really found it to be quite outstanding. The only other consideration which may be an issue (or may not) is the full-frame sensor vs. a crop sensor. Wasn't an issue for me at all.
