A Passion for Photography and capturing speed


Having previously raced combined with a love of motorsports inspires my passion and gives me a unique perspective for this sport. I do love many genres of photography and love creating unique imagery. Though I have a love for all motorsports and cation sports.


I do have an appreciation and love for the art of photography across all genres. If you want to see examples of other genres I shoot please reach out to me.


A Creative at Heart


I come from a creative background and have carried this experience over to my passion for photography. Whether it is photography or video I love to create unique beautiful imagery. Depending on the project creating a beautiful image out of the camera can be first step in the creative process of utilizing post-processing tools to create an image's unique look and feel.


I love shooting action on the track as much as setting up a shoot with lighting in a studio or paddock and outdoors on the track or on a mountain bike trail.


I am passionate about working on new challenging ideas and concepts. Please feel free to reach out to me about any project concepts you have in mind that we can bring to fruition.

MY GEAR These are my go to camera bodies and lenses for shooting Motorsports and Action.

Sony a1 (x 2)

This camera is a 50 megapixel 30 fps beast! Those additional frames with that lock-on focus helps me to pick out those super sharp crisp shots.


The high resolution 50MP gives me the ability to crop in while still keeping a large resolution image.


For motorsports I usually have the 400 2.8 on one and the 70-200 or the 100-400 on the other a1 body.


SONY A7III

Great all-around camera with good dynamic range. I usually use this camera for photos and video off the track.


I usually use the 12-24, 135 1.8, or 50 1.2 on this camera.

SONY 400 2.8 GM

My hands down favorite lens to shoot with for action sports. The images this lens can produce are amazingly sharp.

SONY 100-400 4.5-5.6 GM

My favorite panning lens produces tack sharp images and usually lives on the a9 at the track.

SONY 70-200 2.8 GM II

Another great lens for getting some shots at a shorter distance from panning to shots in the garages.

SONY 12-24 2.8 GM

I love the sharp establishing shots I can get from this lens. This will usually live in the a7III to get those wide track and pit shots.

SONY 135 1.8 GM

This is a great lens for getting those shots of the riders on the grid or mountain bikers on DH trails blowing out the backgrounds. This lens also is great for capturing riders in the pits.

Sony 50 1.2 GM

Incredible lens for getting portrait shots with a blown out background.
