No I don't. I kinda just do it as a hobby. Was actually taking photos because it was my buddy's first trackday. Was difficult running around all day. Taking photos then running over to the pit to get suited up. haha.

I'll look into the website thing. But most of them are monthly fees...

Very good shots!
The "cheap way"... Make them all fairly small @ 72ppi, and upload to some free gallery (picasa for example)... then sell via paypal/email as you're doing now. Even upload un-edited batch resize.... then fix up the ones that are getting paid for.

However... I'm not sure if the trackday orgs care to have people doing that. Do they have "official" photogs who plan on getting money from it? Personally, i think the more the better.

Yea each Org has their own photog. Triumphant675, Cory Blair, is the photographer for fast line. At least I think that's his screen name. He's an awesome guy and takes great shots. You can see his work at:
www.coryblair.com

Although ride smart has a photographer that I'm not happy with. every time I do one of their track days I always look to see if there are good shots of me. And I'm always disappointed. He has thousands of dollars invested in equipment, one of his lenses is almost $7,000.00, and he takes pictures that look like an amateur. His shots have too much headspace, are not always in focus, or he cuts part of the bike off. Not to mention he does no editing at all and is over priced.

Nice images. The non-horizontal lines could be straightened out. 1st pic is the best of the bunch, imo.

I'd love to go out and shoot at one of these track days but I don't have any long glass suited for it. The one 150mm 2.8 lens I have is the Sigma macro lens... which isn't meant for this kind of shooting and the slow focusing pretty much lens I'd have to set focus before and just shoot when the rider got into the focus plane.
