Specialists in location and action photography.

Motorsports

We shoot anything that moves - to move you!

Jay Alley, through Alleygroup Associates, Inc., covers all forms of motorsports and does it with a unique style and vision! We bring back pictures no matter what - that's what we do.

Our aim is to provide top notch motorsports photography for journalistic and editorial purposes. We work for national and international media outlets, race teams or drivers, sponsors, promoters, sanctioning bodies and racetracks. We do not sell photos for individual or personal use obtained through our credential access, but would be glad to talk with you about the services we can provide during a race event weekend. Action photography is mostly about timing, and being at the right place at the right time. As you can see from the publication covers at right, Vitor Meira's crash at the 2009 Indy 500 was one of those moments where timing and location were everything and earned Jay Alley space on the front page of the May 28, 2009 edition of American Motor Journal.

The December 2007 Stock Car Racing magazine cover shot of a street stocker at Kentucky Speedway was another example of the lengths we go to in order to deliver our product. That weekend included shooting Indy 500 Carb Day at Indianapolis on Friday, Kentucky Speedway street stocks on Saturday until late in the evening, and rising before dawn Sunday to shoot the Indy 500.

In 2009, Jay Alley was admitted into the Indy 500 Oldtimers Club in recognition of more than 20 years service at the Indianapolis 500 as a member of the working media. A more complete listing of his motorsports media experience follows.
