Tim Wright, ARC Finish Photographer, Photoaction.com. 23/12/2014

We sat down with yachting photographer Tim Wright at the ARC finish in Saint Lucia. Tim has been photographing the ARC finish since 2000, and has been a professional photographer since the early 1990s.He sailed, single-handed, in the first ARC in 1986 on a 29-footer, and never went home. After a lightbulb idea to photograph a race in Bequia, he took the success of that and expanded on it to create what he calls an 'itinerant photography lifestyle,' whereby he sails his boat up and down the Caribbean taking photos of sailing events.Tim talks about his career, ARC, and how he 'made' it in photography and created one heck of a lifestyle job.
