STAFF OPINION: Make it electric, then make it fast

I am biased in saying this, no doubt, but I want to see UP EV racing teams regularly take one to two finishes at every event and be the dominant team in the league while picking up a couple of patents along the way. These are ambitious goals, but goals that I whole-heartedly believe are attainable.

Beacon photographer Brennan Crowder spent the weekend of Aug. 30 through Sep. 1 at the Grand Prix of Portland, getting an inside look of life in the IndyCar racing world.

Staff Opinion: How to get into photography

All too often I see someone walk up to something interesting, rattle off twenty or so pictures on their phone or worse, their DSLR, quickly look through the pictures they got, think to themselves, “Eh, one of these is bound to turn out” and walk away. Admit it, we’ve all been there, myself included.
