What kind of photographer do you consider yourself? I use to be a wedding photographer but I didn't like it. It was not what I wanted to do. I wanted to shoot photos of subjects that gave me the chance to be more creative. Subjects that had more substance.

What equipment did you use to shoot RHC10? I shot with a Nikon D300s. During the day i used an 80-200mm 2.8 lens and as the day went by I changed to my 85mm 1.8 to get close up shots of the racers and toward the night I switched to my 24-70mm lens so I had a wider angle during the race.

How many shots did you take? I took about 2600 shots but most of them weren't any good because i wasn't using a flash and had trouble getting things in focus.

How many times did you shoot RHC? This would be my second time shooting the race. I remember the first time I photographed this race I only had a point and shoot Sony RX100!

What was your favorite moment of the race? My favorite part was seeing old faces and making new friends.
