THE LAST RUN
ODE TO STATE FAIR PARK (Lincoln Race Course), and of course, the
JOCKEYS that rode thoroughbreds for our fifty years in Lincoln.
The prints included with this collection are all images that I captured during the final season of racing at Lincoln Race Course - during the summer of 2012. It was my desire and hope to have the photos accurately reflect and represent the daily grind, the jockey life story...their passion, work, reward as well as the losses (which are most frequent). I gained great friends over that summer. This display of images is dedicated to them... as well as the entire Lincoln Race Course front office staff (without them this would never have been able to happen. I would also like to extend my deepest heartfelt appreciation to all the people that worked and welcomed me on the backside, the owners, trainers, grooms, outriders, valets, pony girls, and the gate crew members.
My career path has been non-linear. I've been a rock & roll band roadie. I've made pizzas, worked as a printing press operator, car salesman, as well as a high school and collegiate softball coach. I'm also the founder of two local youth sports programs. Currently, I work full-time. The few hours left open each day...I chase my creative dreams, spend time with family, including our new grandson, and our two Labrador pups...Mac and Milo.
Being a former athlete and coach...sports is pretty much embedded into my DNA... and I love capturing all of it with my camera. Moments of pre-action, the athlete and fan anticipation, anxiety and emotion, and being absorbed in every race, pitch and every play.
I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to view THE LAST RUN images that are displayed. Interest in purchasing a print? If so, please feel free to contact me directly through email first at email@example.com Please find my additional contact information listed below. Thanks for viewing!
