I mostly shoot non-ball type of sports like surfing, sailing, skate, motocross, and of course, my favorite the Monster Energy Supercross series.
I often answer questions like what my day is like when I’m photographing a sport like Supercross. I get questions like how did you get photography credentials? Do you photograph from the stadium seats? Are you the only photographer? How long do you shoot? Read on, and I’ll try to answer these questions along with giving you a little insight as to what my day involves. A lot of what I do can be applied to covering local events too, so I’ll give a few tips along the way.
