About Peter Bukowski,
Peter attended his first automobile race, at the old O’Hare
Raceway, for an evening of midget racing with a family friend. That began an interest in racing that has
grown other the years. He would listen to radio broadcasts of the Indy 500,
with his father every Memorial Day and watch Wide World of Sports coverage of
LeMans. The next race that he attended was the June Sprints at Road America in
1972. Since that first trip, Peter has been to many different events at Road
America and other tracks.
At about this time, Peter received his first 35mm camera as
a gift. Every trip to the race track, he had the Canon Tlb over his shoulder or
up to his eye, looking to get a great shot. Those days of shooting film made
for rather expensive trips, with the processing cost for 3-5 rolls of film per
In 2007, Peter finally joined the digital age with the
upgrade to a Canon EOS.
Peter has enjoyed shooting at some of the great tracks in
the USA. While he considers Road America to be his home track, he has also shot
at Mid-Ohio, The Milwaukee Mile, Chicagoland Speedway, and for the first time
in 2012, Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. In addition to these tracks, Peter has
shot at a variety of club tracks in the Midwest.
On the race track, Peter enjoys shooting motorcycles, sports
cars (current as well as vintage and historic) and Karts.
Peter supports his racing/photography efforts, as a client
service representative for a Financial Advisor in Lake County Illinois.
