Hi, I’m Steve Ritchie, a Motorsport Photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand.
From when I was a pre-teen I had a passion for automobiles and motorsport. My introduction to motorsport occurred when I started attending events at Pukekohe Park Speedway along with the CB club, who would assist with the marshalling. I would go along with my 35mm Pentax Automatic camera and several rolls of film. Now days we use digital, and it’s all about megapixels!
Having photographed events since January 2014, I am now a regular contributor to NZ Classic Car Magazine, photographing and writing reports. Some of the recent events I have covered include The Leadfoot Festival, Rally of Whangarei, and the Festival of Motorsport.
You will usually find me trackside or roaming the paddock at Hampton Downs.. If you do see me, come up and say hi!
I hope you enjoy browsing the following images through my lens.
