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 marshaling. 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 most of New Zealand’s motoring magazines as well as a couple of UK’s main titles photographing and writing reports. Some of the recent events I have covered include The Leadfoot Festival, Rally of Whangarei, and the Festival of Motorsport.

In 2016 I was awarded the Motorsport NZ photographer of the year for a single shot with this photo that I captured from the International Rally of Whangarei.

You will usually find me track-side 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.
