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 trip.
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.
