[Transcription]  “...There are two official start shots for each Indy 500. There’s the high start and a low start shot. This is obviously the low start. The high start is taken from the same angle but taken almost exactly 125 feet above this shot. I shot the high start for years and then moved down to the low start when the photographer who had shot it for a long time retired. The two shots could not be more different. The high start is more or less a landscape photo with some cars in it. You wanna see the packed stands and the Pagoda and the flags blowing on top of the Pagoda and the breeze. The grid of cars is important but the context is what makes the shot. The low start is an action shot. You want enough context and landscape to know that it is the Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but the shot has to be at the right moment and the viewer has to know that it’s noisy, smoky, and gritty, and that the cars are coming right at you at terrifying speed. For the high start, the photographer is almost alone in a special perch. You know the crowds there but you’re somewhat isolated. It's almost peaceful. You can think a little bit. For the low start, you’re right in the middle of everything with a screaming crowd a few feet behind you, and the roaring grid of cars a few feet in front. The low start is a shot through a heavily reinforced hole in the fence right above the safer barrier. From the time the grid gets the green flag, to a few seconds later, when they get to the entrance of turn one where you are with your camera is probably the loudest and most stressful few seconds I will ever spend. I love taking both shots, but the stress of the low start is for sure my favorite moment of the racing year.”
