As a racing photographer on assignment for a major magazine publisher I must be aware of these team-Sponsor relationships. Often the very names of the companies you see painted on the hood and sides of the race car are the very same names you see in the advertisements that are placed in those publications. The great racing or motorsports photographer recognizes that all important relationship and capitalizes on it for the good of all those involved. Truly a win win relationship. .
