The U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Men’s and Women’s Marathon were run in Houston, Texas on 14 January 2012. The top three finishers in each division were selected for the 2012 U.S. Team for the Olympics in London. Men’e winner was Meb Keflezighi. Women’s winner was Shalane Flanagan. Conditions were ideal; about 38º at the start, clear and still.
Over the years, I’ve photographed motor racing in all of it’s forms. Nascar, stock cars, open wheel – Indy cars and Formula 1 (F!), Grand Prix, 24 Hour endurance, drag racing, truck racing, dirt tracks, short tracks, high speed ovals and tri-ovals, road tracks. This includes over twenty Daytona 500s and Indy 500s each. I’ve photographed the drivers, owners, promoters, mechanics and crew. Many of these people have become friends. Most of all the cars.
I’ve photographed just about all varieties of sport – professional, collegiate, Olympic, and amateur. Golf, tennis, football, basketball, baseball, horses, motor racing, winter sports – skiing, snowboarding, skating, ice hockey – swimming, diving, wrestling, boxing, sailing, rowing, etc., etc. etc. There is no end to the variety. Photographs have been used editorially, on line, for networks – CBS Sports, NBC Sports, ABC Sports, Fox Sports, etc.- books, advertising, corporate reports and brochures.
