WE, THE ARTISTIC NOMADS.
Mankind has always been intoxicatingly captivated by the pursuit of mechanical ingenuity. Intoxication quickly befell addiction. Addiction driven through individual creativity and speed infused adrenaline rushes.
An addiction tracing back to the lineage of Karl Benz who invented (1885) and patented (1886) what is considered to be the first practical automobile. This trailblazing act closed the gap of economic necessity while creating a vehicle symbolic to a relevant subculture all its own... a soundboard for individual expression in modern times.
Tightly woven into this subcultures fabric lie the souls of motorsport creatives. As a moth drawn to candlelight, we too are captivated by LIGHT, SPEED, and unique PERSPECTIVE. Artistic nomads, one and all, circumnavigating the earth on our cyclic pilgrimage to quench the insatiable thirst for creative inspiration.
Simply put, motorsport photography is my creative calling. Singular, unique, and powerful. I crave the opportunity to score that next creative fix. My soul source… the next race!
MY CREATIVE IMPETUS.
I immediately paused the documentary and began to deconstruct the words I had just heard leave Darren’s lips.
After some reflection and a moment of illuminated clarity I concluded that not only was his statement valid, more importantly it would become the catalyst to which I would hinge-pin my artistic signature and prove him false.
BRIDGING THE GAP.
In a world where milliseconds separate the victor from the defeated, it goes without saying that an aggressive marketing strategy is paramount. A sensory directed, consumer consumption philosophy of real-time visual content is often the overriding factor of relevance and branding legitimacy.
I confidently offer a creatively relevant, unique, and revitalizing solution to the status quo of motorsport branding. My vision bridges the creative gap between photojournalism and fine art. A workflow considered refreshingly suitable for commercial and marketing applications where professional quality, originality, and repeatability are the outlying priorities.
