Fanless Finish

"Cars race during sunset in front of empty grandstand spectator seating during the NASCAR Cup Series Pocono 350 at Pocono Raceway on June 28, 2020 in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. The NASCAR series is currently racing without fans due the Covid-19 pandemic."

While the coronavirus pandemic stopped all live action of professional sports - photographers worldwide were looking for ways to tell the story.

Months of photographing athletes continuing to train filled my schedule. And was an amazing opportunity into their new style of working out to stay fit.

However, it wasn't until about three months later that I photographed a live pro sporting event. While many images of athletes working out at home were more than interesting - and continue to be - that itch of real competition needed to be itched.

Sports to the likes of golf, auto racing and others slowly made their return - but without fans.

It's been an adjustment for both sides of the sports returning - and seeing the empty grandstands has become a focal point.
