My passion for photography goes way back to my teens...my passion for motorsports and manmade things with wheels goes back further. When I use to get 50 cents for my chores I would ride down to the corner news stand to buy a hot rod magazine. As I got older I got a motorcycle which continued for years and even road racing, flat track, motorcross and drag racing motorcycles in the early 70's and 80's. Had my share of crashes too! All the while taking photos of motorsports action. A tough scenario with film cameras and manual focus. (WE ARE SO SPOILED TODAY) but that's cool!
Anyway my son and I always bonded and continue to shoot racing action, the drivers, pit action, camaraderie and suspense involved in motorsports. Shooting for several owners and teams over the years and loving every minute of it.
So while I have no one forte photographically and I always never need a reason to go take photographs. I don't consider myself a landscape photographer, I love just seeing things that surround me everyday! To capture a moment no one else saw and save it....that's the passion, like a song stuck in your head. Obsession....plainly yes! But it is self gratifying, a bit narcissistic, maybe. It does tend to keep the wheels rolling and if I make some money along the way, what's the harm. So I say keep on, keepin on...there's a silver lining!
