Photographer in Newport RI

When searching for a Photographer in Newport RI, it’s important to remember the factors that set really good photographers apart. These include their years of experience in the photography industry; their level of proficiency as a photographer; and what past clients have to say about their service. I have always enjoyed working as an expert Photographer in Newport RI and exceeding my clients’ expectations. Sports photography in Newport is an area that I have immense interest in. Known as “The City by the Sea” and as “The Sailing Capital of the World”, Newport for many years, played host to a series of America's Cup yacht races. On land, the Women's US Open has been held here (in 2007) and the city holds the honor of being designated a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. In the air, the R.I. National Guard Open House and Air Show at Quonset State Airport dominates the skies. That show features aerial acrobatics, stunt flying and military aircraft on display. It generates quite a bit excitement in the crowds gathered on the ground. Air shows and air races always carry that sense of intrigue for their spectators. Positioned safely on the ground, they watch as flying aces take to the sky and put on a show they will remember for a long time to come. An example is in the above photo which was taken at the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. On this occasion, the photo shows Peter Besenyei, #5 of Hungary, racing through the track during the qualifying rounds in Abu Dhabi. He is taking his plane along the course marked by the competition’s iconic 25-foot tall pylons. The angle from which the picture is taken creates a very interesting effect, as those massive pylons and the skyscrapers in the background combine to give the aircraft an enchanting toy-like quality – stunning!
