PWC SprintX GTS Photographer US

This photograph of the number 80 GTS Mantella Autosports KTM XBow GT4 race car was captured at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT. It is being piloted here by driver, Martin Barkey, charging towards the "West Bend" turn on what may be the most beautiful road course anywhere in the world. I love Lime Rock. Nestled in the hills of northwest Connecticut the track is a true gem. The experience for the fans is unequalled. I have photographed road racing events here for The Pirelli World Challenge and for the IMSA WeatherTech Racing Series. Everything from small touring class cars to exotic supercars put down laps on this picturesque property. I photograph all types of motorsports competitions. I recently photographed two NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series national events…the New England Nationals in Epping, NH and the Summernationals at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. I have even photographed a Monster Energy Monster Jam event. My real passion however is for road racing…whether it be exotic automobiles or motorcycles. Racing photography requires specialized equipment for sure but, more importantly, a highly tuned skill set of photographic techniques to capture the essence of the sport…SPEED. This image was created using a motion blur technique wherein the background and the wheels of the car are blurred to accentuate the speed of the car…some 150 MPH at this spot…while keeping the car in razor sharp focus. Not an easy shot. If you are a major motorcycle, automobile or truck racing magazine publisher or internet based sports reporting outlet give me a call. If you are looking for a photographer to cover your next racing event I’m ready to go. My studio is conveniently located within hours of all of the major racing venues in the northeast United States and I available for travel anywhere.
