Unfortunately we didn't get out to photograph until late in the season for the Great Northern SnoCross series of races. The first weekend we traveled to Timber Coulee Thunder for some racing action followed by the Great Northern SnoCross Championship held in Plymouth, Wisconsin the following weekend.
Thanks to some friends of ours that were racing we decided to get out and enjoy some SnoCross racing action on some beautiful spring days here in Wisconsin. Seeing we were pretty new to the sport we didn't know a lot of the racers as we began shooting at these events. After the first few laps, that was it, the rest was history. We were HOOKED on SnoCross!!!
There were many teams represented at each of these events. With age groups from just little kids, to racers well into their 40's and 50's. The aggressiveness of the sport is what draws you in. The two pictured above stood out for us. They are sisters and they dominated the track during each of the races we photographed. It was very enjoyable capturing images of their aggressive riding style.
During each of the races we added some new friends and faces to our portfolio. The aggressive riding style and determination of some of these young racers is what we wanted to capture in our images. We can appreciate fine tuned equipment along the need - want - and desire to win. Photographers are like racers, we all have an addiction to work hard crafting our art form.
Thanks to all the racers and families that have taken time to let us know how much they have enjoyed seeing the images and a special thanks to those that have purchased images. It means a lot to us to knowing we captured that special moment and it allows us to continue to follow our passion of photography.
Until next season...
