My Biggest Fan: Framed By Joe Photography

Without my husband, Joe, I wouldn’t be where I am now. Not in motorcycling and not in life. He has been, and continues to be, an awesome force behind realizing my dream and actually getting the courage to take the first step, and then another, and another after that. Without him I wouldn’t be racing. Without him, I woudn’t even be trying. He is my greatest supporter, emotionally and financially. That is why he is my first, and favorite, sponsor.

Joe is a wannabe photographer as I am a wannabe racer. With one major difference: he actually has a chance to make a living with his passion, to be his own boss, to shape his own creative vision as a businessman. Unfortunately, he also has a job that requires him to work horrendously long hours with hardly any time off. Two partial days, a Tuesday and a Saturday, pass for his weekend. Between his job and helping me with my racing endeavors it seems that he doesn’t have time for anything else.

He has his first wedding gig in March. He is nervous and he is excited. He tried to get out of it, but in the end the groom had the better argument and he agreed to shoot the event. He has always been the go-to guy for any of the family events: be it a Christening, First Communion, or a 50th wedding anniversary. He takes his camera everywhere. Our family is about sick and tired of “Papa Razzi” sticking his lens into everybody’s business. But they really do appreciate the results later. 🙂

He has also dabbled in sports photography, mainly children’s ball games. Just to hone his craft, to learn how to cope with different challenges such as an indoor basketball game under fluorescent lighting or fast action stills with a telephoto lens at a summer Pee Wee baseball game. And he’s good. He has an eye for composition. He takes the kind of photos that parents want 8x10s of to frame and put on their desks. He captures those “Yeah, that’s my baby!” moments perfectly.

He has also done product photography for a leading pharmacy chain, and has taken group shots of their employees for the “meet our team” wall photos.

Why am I talking him up so much? Because that’s what I’m supposed to do. I stand behind him, as he stands behind me. He’s my sponsor, he gives me tires and a ride to the track, I give him advertising. 🙂 Besides, if the man doesn’t get the pressure put on him by me throwing business his way, he’ll never get off his duff to update his website and work on his various projects when he does get some time away from his multiple other obligations.

This is a shout-out to my favorite sponsor:

    What a post! Both of you are generous and supportive of the other, and that’s no easy feat for a couple sometimes. It’s good to read about people like you two…somewhere besides a story book!

    Love the LOGO!! He sounds like quite a guy…you are both very lucky …she said with a little tear in her eye…. sniffle.

  4. Best of luck to your Joe, and obviously to you too.

    As others have said, the coolest thing about this post is the support you two show one another! So lets seem some super awesome MissBusa photos in frames at the track-side, eh? Oh, BTW, does he have a website?

      Yes, it’s FramedByJoe.com 🙂 And the post has worked, he has already started to work on it and clean it up a bit and make it more professional looking rather than just a spot for him to dump his family pics. *giggles* What a little pressure from the wifey can do… ah, the power of woman, hear me well… roar, I suppose. ;P
