Welcome to Kroll Images

All Star Images
I love to explore our world and share my mind’s eye view of it with others.
I am very fortunate to live in a beautiful corner of the planet. The Pacific Northwest is a visual playground with scenic coastlines, wild streams, majestic peaks, and lush landscapes. The towering waterfalls and stunning vistas of the Columbia River Gorge are practically in my back yard and among my favorite destinations. Sports are one of my favorite things to capture, especially action sports like longboarding, triathalons and auto racing.
I’m surrounded by wonderful people, places, and things. It is my pleasure to share my vision of them with you.
I am available for commissioned work including event, concert, wedding, and specified landscape assignments. Contact me via email for details.

Saturday Afternoon eliminations at the 2014 IDF Maryhill Festival of Speed in Goldendale, WA.

This week’s Image of the Week is the fourth in a series from the recent Maryhill Festival of Speed. Blasting Through is from the Saturday Afternoon eliminations.

This image was captured about 20 minutes after Cruising Home. Because I was only at the event for the weekend this year I took a bit of a different approach than in past years. Previously I made a big effort to document the week and tried to capture images from nearly every session and basically every racer. This year I did more experimenting with technique and positioning. I didn’t carry huge amounts of equipment (some of the photographers who did got some very interesting results), instead I tried to get different angles and use some varying shutter speeds and flash setups. This image uses the flash and is with a very wide angle lens with the riders only about 18 inches from the front of my lens.

All of my images are now in the 2014 Maryhill Festival of Speed galleries on the site! There are some selected images at the beginning and then four complete galleries broken into morning and afternoon from Saturday and Sunday.

  • RAW image with Nikon D7000 @ 200 ISO
