leave a comment »

I shot the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 today for the Associated Press along with AP Photographer Steve Helber and Don Peterson. Here’s our photos from the day – AP Images. The last 10 images should be mine, but check the byline because the sort could get reordered. It was a great race.

Fast Track Night Two

with one comment

I covered the second night of the Martinsville-Henry County Chamber of Commerce’s Fast Track 2011 trade show tonight. I shot all these photos with the Olympus E-5 and 14-35mm F2 and 7-14mm F4 lenses somewhere between ISO 800 to 3200.

The first photo was the moment a computer generated Martinsville Mayor Kim Adkins as the winner of an iPad from HD Web Studio. The second photo is a booth that was showing window pane film technology that insulates windows from cold and heat. That was pretty cool. The third photo is from the SPCA booth. Someone needs to adopt this dog. The fourth photo is Lucky Dog meeting the Blue Ridge Bear. Lucky Dog has a good home. The fifth photo is the StarTek booth. Yes race fans, that’s Timothy Peters on the right in the sixth photo.

To end this tour of the evening check out that last photo. A double image of Martinsville Bulletin photographer Mike Wray on the big screen. It reminds me of the Double Mint girls – double the fun.

I shot the Martinsville-Henry County Chamber of Commerce’s annual trade show, Fast Track 2011, tonight. Here are a few photos from the event. The last couple of photos were shot with the Olympus E-P1 as I was goofing around walking back to Mike Wray’s pickup. I walked to the show from my studio and Mike was giving me a ride back.

Chamber Annual Meeting

with 2 comments

The Martinsville and Henry County Chamber of Commerce held its Annual Meeting on Tuesday night at Chatmoss Country Club. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling was the guest speaker for the evening. When Lt. Gov. Bolling came into the ballroom he grabbed my tie and asked, “What’s on the tie.” It was a tie with little shrimp in bowls of grits.

The last photo is of former Delegate Barnie Day who won the Fred Herring Award.
