Andretti, Labonte, Moore, Galati. Do any of these last names sound familiar to you? If you know anything about racing, they should. These are some of the biggest names in the business of professional auto racing - the place where Rick Steiger shines as a star. Rick's images of these superstars, as well as many others on the track, are among the best you will find anywhere. Our staff at Profotos was impressed by the exceptional quality of Rick's racing images, several of which could win awards just for their artistic quality alone.
One of the most interesting aspects of Rick's images is the way he "pans" with the vehicles to create a great sense of motion and speed. This panning effect is very difficult to produce and it only comes with a lot of experience. Some of our staff members actually have a difficult time capturing motion while a vehicle is moving at only 50km/hour, let alone 250+km/hour! Rick produces this effect flawlessly, at any speed - we're jealous, Rick :=)
Even if motorsports is not your forte, we invite you to take a look at Rick's Profotos portfolio. The action captured in his images is enough to make anyone's adrenaline rush!,Born and raised in Connecticut, Rick has been shooting motorsports for 15 years with most of his work geared toward PR firms, Annual reports, trade journals, small businesses, and the advertising industry. While not shooting 50 feet away from 200 mph racing machinery he also shoots Architectural photography utilized by Engineering Consultants for presentations and product journals. Photographing motorsports is a sensory overload; to be able to transform a sense of sight, sound and emotion on film is the ultimate challenge.
