10 years ago, I was the tour photographer for the rock band 3 Doors Down and I had the chance to attend my first NASCAR race in Charlotte, NC. I would have never imagined that nearly 10 years later I would be hired to return back to Charlotte to photograph one of my favorite NASCAR drivers, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

More specifically, I was hired to do the official 2014 photoshoot for Dale Earnhardt Jr and the #88 National Guard Car. This was a HUGE honor and something I've dreamed about shooting for years.

Dale was awesome and a very cool guy. We had an extensive shot list to accomplish and intense schedule and thankfully he was completely agreeable and very easy to work with. We all had a lot of fun and good laughs on set. Unfortunately, it's not always that easy for us photographers!
