Pirelli World Challenge GTS Photographs

This photograph of the Swisher Racing #9 KTM X-Bow racing car was captured at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT. Driven by Bill Ziegler the Swisher Racing/Ansa Motorsports car is seen here competing in the GT4 class at The Pirelli World Challenge. I love all types of motorsports photography. I have covered national NHRA events in the world of 10,000+ HP drag racing cars. I have photographed Monster Trucks at indoor arena venues. By far my favorite form of racing is road racing…be it automobiles or motorcycles. My studio location on Long Island in New York allows me to easily access some of the finest road racing circuits anywhere. Watkins Glen International, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, New Jersey Motorsports Park, Thompson Motor Speedway, Pittsburg International and Virginia International are all within hours of my studio. In this photograph I used a motion blur technique to accent the speed of the race car which was traveling in excess of 100 MPH when I captured it. The picture was taken approaching the "West Bend" turn of Lime Rock Park…in my opinion one of the most beautiful road racing courses anywhere. My background as a portrait photographer gives me a unique perspective on the sport of racing. I am often retained by race teams or their sponsors for their public relations or advertising photography needs. Often times this includes photographing drivers, team members and other people associated with the ownership and sponsorship of the race team. Naturally I am available for assignment from any major motorsports magazine publication or internet-based media outlet. If you need coverage of any motorsports racing event in the northeast, or anywhere in the world, I am only a phone call away. I hope to collaborate with you soon.
