My first Dakar rally

So I had an opportunity to participate on Dakar rally 2015 as permanent accredited photographer. It was a great experience, though I also had some newbie troubles. But anyway I'd recommend this to everyone.

Some shots:

Re: My first Dakar rally

Maybe your first Dakar Rally as perm. accredited photog, but from your work I'd say you have done a lot of auto races (along with other action events). Nice. If I could find some similar events in the States I would consider it.

Kicking up the amount of dirt in some shots and from your vantage point, I wonder if the rally has life ins on its photogs??

I used scarf to protect my mouth and nose from dust and sand and Lensprotect to protect my cameras and lenses. It worked quite well, everything survived
