Annapolis may be Maryland’s capital city, but Baltimore is definitely the biggest and there is a world of opportunity for those interested in Event Photography in Baltimore. The city was founded in 1729 and has flourished as one the second-largest seaports along the Mid-Atlantic coast. With a service-driven economy and many notable institutions such as the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore continues to thrive as one of the largest metropolitan areas within the US. The city of Baltimore holds the distinction of being the location where the country’s national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, was written during the War of 1812 by Francis Scott Key. Baltimore is also the hometown of many well-known figures, including Edgar Allan Poe, Billie Holiday and Babe Ruth. With statues, monuments and historic districts a-plenty, Baltimore provides an interesting backdrop to events of all types that are staged here. Sporting events are among the most popular and they often make good use of professional Event Photography in Baltimore. From Babe Ruth to the Baltimore Orioles and the Baltimore Ravens, the city has embraced sports and sporting events in all forms. Take, for instance, the Grand Prix of Baltimore car race which was held annually from 2011 – 2013. It was an exciting street circuit race with the cars and drivers drawing a great deal of attention. Much like the attention being shown by members of the press to the impressive vehicle in this photo. It is one of only 12 luxury cars in the Maserati Special Edition GranTurismo S MC Sport Line – worldwide. It’s on display at Abu Dhabi's international Formula 1 Yas Marina circuit. The car, of course, takes pride of place in this photo and at the Yas Marina circuit’s Shell-sponsored event where the photo was shot. Car manufacturer Maserati had the honor of pole position at the event.
