About Matt:  kartawesome

I am primarily a self taught photographer.  I started race photography in 1997 and have continued to perfect my craft since then.   I began photography after failing out of Ninja School.  As it turns out I was not suited to stealth and subversion being built like an NFL Lineman.  On the upside that large frame is handy when hauling 50 pounds of photo equipment miles into the desert or around the racetrack.  When my photo career ends I plan to attend a Pirate school, since you can still be a fat pirate.

I can be found at SCORE, BITD, LOORRS, Moto GP, F1, WRC, NHRA, NASCAR, IHBA, MLB as well as other auto and sports events around the world.  If you see me or a member of the Durka Army at an event, give a Durka Durka! yell and get some stickers (if available).

What the hell is a Photo Jihad?
pho·to (fō’tō) To photograph or take photographs.
ji·had /dʒɪˈhɑd/ Pronunciation KeyShow Spelled Pronunciation[ji-hahd] any vigorous, emotional crusade for an idea or principle.

My goal is simple, to provide high quality affordable prints and photos to racers, fans and media outlets around the world.  This is my Jihad.
