    My capture of Ben Spies passing Matt Mladin at Laguna Seca up in the corkscrew got published in the Sport Rider "RACING PHOTO ANNUAL 2007" thought I would share........

    Yoshimura Suzuki Teammates Matt Mladin and Ben Spies were 1 point between eachother, Matt in first place in the AMA Superbike Championship in this final round of competition and Ben a close 2nd... Matt had been leading this race until the midway point when Ben made this daring pass for the lead and was able to stay out front for the win and for the championship in 2007.

    Below are some photos of the magazine. Page 23, the lower 2 photos are the 2 that Sportrider Magazine bought from me.

    I rember the shot of the pass in the coarkscrew, I had looked because I love Laguna Seca but did not say anything because I am not into MotoGP.

    Great shots and congrats

    Congrats, If that is your first I would frame it. It is alwas a great feeling to find your work being published so the public can see. I search for my stuff on google all the time and come across my stuff and go to magazine rack flipping through different magazines and find a photo of mine. So far I almost have a huge trunk filled with newpapers, magazines and internet pages printed out with my photos on it. Keep up the awsome work.

    I was at the races with a media credential, was trackside in media land [where mere mortals can not go] and was shooting. I caught the pass that decided the 2007 AMA Superbike season championship in my camera and contacted a couple different magazines with the news. This magazine bought the rights to use these 2 photos in this particular magazine issue. Thats how it works.

    To the guy that discovered a bunch of his photos in all those different magazines etc....... Last I checked, taking peoples photographs and using them for any purpose without permission to do so is a crime.

    It is great that you have a box full of clippings but I would rather have a fuller bank account from being paid for my work.

    Glad you guys liked the photos - I have thousands more. It is tuff to sell them because there are so many guys willing to give away their photos just to see their name in print. But that is a whole topic by itself.....

    Hey congrat!!! Very nice, you caught a great moment!!! You shoot sport with D80? I guess equipment doesn't matter that much. I'm fairly new to photography so I got to ask, lol.
