Shoot I Loved the Most: Six Weeks with NASCAR
Our Waco Director of Photography, Roger Woodruff, tells us about his all-time favorite shoot:
I love a lot of things in life, but NASCAR has a special place in my heart. I’ve been following the sport since I was a little kid. I grew up watching Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin, and other greats that grace the family television every Sunday. A couple of years ago I got the assignment of a lifetime. I was hired to be TNT‘s “All Access” crew with fellow DP, Dave Baker. For six weeks we traveled around the country with some of NASCAR’s most elite drivers. Each week meant we covered one driver’s experience off the track as they prepared for the upcoming race. It was a dream come true. I rode on private jets, had access to Ford’s test track, and even spent time on Capitol Hill. It was truly a special experience and I didn’t take one second of it for granted. It was literally the best six weeks of my life. Only getting married rivals that experience.
