Photos and video of track cycling, road racing and cyclocross


Thanks for looking at my photos. I’m an amateur photographer who rides track at the Home Depot Center Velodrome in Carson. The first time I tried to take pictures there I used a Canon Rebel XT on the automatic sports setting, without flash. I had a lot to learn. Now I’m shooting with a Canon 5dmarkii with a 580exii flash. I still have a lot to learn, but I’m enjoying the journey. Let me know what you think, or tell me what works for you. I’d love to hear about your experience shooting bike racing.

    Hi Pat. I was at the Rose Bowl ride last Thursday, March 10th and someone told me that you were the photographer taking the pics in the first turn. I’m on the Ritte team and was leading on one lap coming into that turn when I believe I looked right into your lens. Do you think you have a pic of me?

  2. Hey Pat,
    I am the Handcyclist you took an image of Sunday before our criterium at The Redlands Classic. Great pict, I was wondering if you’d mind if I posted it on Facebook, of course leaving your watermark. I am a photographer myself who mostly teaches now and i would never use someone else’s image without permission.

    Thanks again and let me know.

    I’m writing to you because you took some fantastic photos of Wolfpack Hustle’s 6th Street Drag Race in 2013. We are making a photo book and would love to use some of your photos. Please contact me if you’d be interested in sharing your photos! Thank you very much.

  5. Hi Pat
    Great photos! We are organizing a Gran Fondo in Tehachapi, CA and Jimmy Watkins is our guest Pro rider. We would like to promote him and I see that you have some fantastic images of him. Would you mind us using them in our brochure, being sure to give you photo credit with copyright info? It would greatly be appreciated.
