Photographer Shelby Knick - "From Outside the Fence to In"

The thrill and personality of motor sports attracted Shelby Knick’s creative vision. As a young woman, she found herself photographing the sport from outside the fence. But her perseverance and talent paid off, propelling her into the top tier of the profession she loves.


Her journey began at a Northern CA Junior College, then led her to London’s fashion industry, then back across the pond to Los Angeles where she got her first big break as a photographer. Her story is both inspiring and informative, and best told in her own words. Here’s my conversation with Shelby Knick
