2013 Ultra Race of Champions – 100k

January 30, 2015 by Caroline

I had no reason to shoot UROC back in Sept. 2013, except to support a friend who had signed up for his first ultra race. I figured I’d shoot a little for posterity. Throughout the race, I had to remind myself, ‘this is fun, not work’. But, I gotta say, I love my job. It’s incredibly fun. Which can lead to a dangerous gray area. As much as I love photography, it’s important to disconnect from the camera and engage in the real-time moment, without trying to capture it. Without thinking about expression or composition or lighting. Like most things, it’s much harder than it sounds. Please enjoy these photos from UROC 2013! (Yes, I know it was awhile ago…)
