Sports Car Motorcycle Drag Racing Stock Photographer

In the world of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series there is probably no personality greater than John Force. This legendary driver has won in excess of 150 National events and has captured an unprecedented 16 National championships…two records that are likely never to be broken. He is still racing today alongside his two daughters: Courtney Force who also pilots the Advance Auto Parts nitro methane powered Funny Car and her sister, Brittany Force who drives the Monster Energy Top Fuel Dragster. The fourth driver in the John Force Racing stable is his son-in-law, Robert Hight who, as of this writing, holds the record for the fastest Funny Car top speed ever at 339.87 MPH. That’s right folks: zero to 340 MPH in under four seconds! THat’s what a 10,000 HP nitro methane burning Funny Car is capable of. This image was captured at the event known as The New England Nations held at New England Dragway in Epping, NH. I had the privilege of being credentialed for this event on assignment for one of the largest motorsports publishing companies in the world. The very next weekend I was at it again at the NHRA national event known as The Summernationals held at the legendary Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. As much as I love drag racing my real passion is for road racing…both automobile sports cars and motorcycles. My Long Island, New York studio is convenient to many of the greatest road racing courses in the world and I have captured events at every one of them. From the legendary Thunderbolt course at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP), to Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT, arguably one of the most beautiful racing venues anywhere. From Watkins Glen International to New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS). I have covered events sanctioned by the Championship Cup Series (CCS), MotoAmerica, IMSA WeatherTech, Mazda Prototype and Continental Tire series events as well as events in the Loudon Road Racing Series. My skill set as a racing photographer goes far beyond my trackside images. As a veteran portrait photographer I am well equipped to handle behind the scenes images of your race team in action, portraits of the drivers/riders in your organization as well as candid coverage of the VIPs and fans you host in your paddock and midway hospitality areas. In other words I’m not just another guy wearing a photo vest running around photographing sports cars and motorcycles on the track. I am a team player that can help you get all of the pictures you need to promote your motorsports brand.
