Welcome to FRIESE IMAGES!
Photography by Shana Whitford
Your Off-Road Motorsports photog!
Growing up my hero was “Bigfoot” the Monster Truck, and I wanted desperately to ride bulls! Needless to say I wasn’t afraid to get dirty and I didn’t care about breaking a nail. On a softer note, I also had a passion for art and quite often was accused of “tracing” my drawings. When I was young, I attended an exhibition of Friesian Horses. After developing my weekend’s worth of pictures from the event, I cringed at the sight of failed photos, I had to find out why. This research became extensive as it led from one thing to another… hence the name, Friese Images! I started working for a sports photographer, and then I was recruited by a wedding photographer. Loving the outdoors, my hubby Brian and I ventured many trail rides and off road adventures in the past with names like Jeff Mello and Jason Scherer, which then led to photographing competitions. Doors began to open for me. I have access to the best seat in the house and it’s my personal challenge to bring it to YOU in focus! I crave the chase and dig the chaos! Aside from photography, I currently work part time for sports photographer and am a proud mommy of three, son Owen, daughters Sawyer and Avery.
Here… have a little dirt in your eye, on me!
