Motorsports Photography - My Job

I work full-time as a motorsports photography. Never done any motorcycle stuff outside of random action that is going on during weekends I am working. I shoot full-time for IMSA and Pirelli World Challenge. I also have done IRL, NASCAR, Formula 1 and some other random stuff.

Random work from this season. Will continue to update with other stuff as it makes it in front of my camera.

Well I race cars and it opened me up to a lot of contacts. Over 6+ years I have made more and more contacts and now shoot for manufacturers and teams for full season stuff. Just pounded the ground and kept my head down and working hard. Eventually everything came back around!

And didn't really search. They are not really 'posted' jobs kind of thing. It's an independent contractor kind of thing. No set hours. No salary. Etc.

So basically don't give up and will have to go out of pocket at the beginning.

Thanks for the feedback, i actually race myself i have a few prospects i'm working on so i guess i just need to dive deeper and keep at it.

keep up the good work, i especially like the last photo you captured between the guard rails.
