2013 Chafe 150

This last weekend I covered the 2013 Chafe 150 for the third year in a row.  This annual race starts in Sandpoint, Idaho and follows a route through Bonners Ferry, then over to Troy, Montana and then back to Sandpoint through Clark Fork and Hope.  It offers both a 150 mile race from Sandpoint and an 80 mile race starting in Troy and both races end in Sandpoint.

In previous years the race has been in early June when the weather can be unpredictable, my first year it was hot and beautiful then last year it was pouring down rain for almost the entire course.  This year the event has been moved to July when the weather is much most consistent, it was definitely a hot one but that sure beats the constant rain we had last year.

Through out the course we found locations to set up at least one and often two different cameras to capture video.  Usually we would have one camera set up to get a wide angle view and another set up with a long zoom lens.  Then of course I took almost 5,000 still images of the event which I culled down to just over 600 for the final gallery.  You can visit the final gallery here to view all of the published photos as well as order prints or digital copies.  Below you will find a handful of still images followed by a seven minute video featuring both still images and video footage.

Usually the only time I see sunrise is before going to bed after a long night of editing, not on the day of the Chafe though!

Nick & Laura’s Engagement Photos

Recently I met up with Nick and Laura in Sandpoint, Idaho to take some engagement photos for them and I have to say it was quite an interesting experience!  This is not a couple that will get accused of taking themselves to seriously and in between the hi-jinx we were able to get some photos along the lines of what you might expect.  We started out at a location on Schweitzer mountain and finished up down by Lake Pend Orielle.

Connor’s Senior Photos – Moscow Class of 2014

Connor is a senior from the class of 2014 at Moscow High School, we met up in Coeur d’Alene to work together on his senior photos.  Since music is such a big part of his life he spent a lot of time during out session with his guitar in his hands.

On our way between locations we came across a great lemonade stand and I could not resist asking permission to take a few portraits with the stand and the young entrepreneur running it.

Unfortunately the field we planned to take soccer photos on was being used, we found a backup location . . .  I just wish there would have been a net in the goal!
