My interest in motorsports photography was a natural combination of my background in sports photography ‚Äď shooting various levels of professional and amateur soccer for Eurosport and ACC events in the Triangle for school papers ‚Äď and my new-found passion for racing.

In 2003, I purchased a BMW 6-series coupe and with the urging of a friend, began a journey that eventually led to me building a dedicated race car. Sprint racing means spending long hours at the track with lots of downtime. It only seemed logical that I take my camera along and camp-out off one of the corners and experiment with whatever rounded the bend.
