| p.1 #13 · Why do you take sports pictures? |
I also played sports in high school and a year in college. I started actively photographing anything and everything in middle school. My first SLR was a Miranda with a 50mm in the 70's. I started taking racing pictures in the 80's and when my three boys came along, I was there with a DSLR. Had to, I couldn't afford film. I still do H/S sports and racing for fun. I think I do it stay around sports and make a few people happy. I have been heavily involved in local circle track (dirt and asphalt) on a race team that has seen our driver start out with one car (at age four) and progress through quarter midgets, legends, late models, and dirt mod's. As a crewman, I rarely had time to actually be taking pictures (and I don't want to take $$$ away from the local track photographer). Our driver went away to college and got an engineering degree and just joined the Patron ALMS team. My hope is to start traveling to see the Patron team at various tracks.
Have I sold images? Yea, a few, here and there. Would I like to do it on a professional basis? Sure, some day when I produce that quality of images. For now, it;s just for my walls, to see my friends, meet new friends, and make a few people smile and possibly say "Hey, I saw that too".
Sorry, that went way too long, didn't it?
