Mat Gdowski's Message: ** I am looking to accept assignments to shoot the Daytona 500 weekend from February 24th through the 26th as I will be there for that weekend, thank you **

Hello there Sports Shooters!

I have been shooting all types of photography since 2002; everything from sports to models to events, etc. For me, the best type of photography to shoot is sports. The action, the excitement, the emotion...all caught on film (or sensor as it may be) for everyone to enjoy the moment.

I am here to learn as much as I can and to help others along the way. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at any time.

I freelance shoot for Cal-Sport Media, ZUMA Press, Front Page Media Group, and Icon Sports Media, but am trying to expand my horizons as much as I can. I am currently accepting freelance jobs at this time. Please contact me via the information listed on this profile.

I shoot all types of sports and most recently covered the University of Kentucky football season, the Cincinnati Bengals, NASCAR Monster Energy Cup, among other sports and non-sports venues.

If you have a need to have anything covered in the Lexington, KY area, or even outside of this area (Louisville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Knoxville, Nashville, Columbus, Detroit, Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, etc), please let me know and I'll do my best to cover it for you; even if it's not a sporting event.

I am happy to report that one of my images have been included in's Pictures of the Year for 2011. At the bottom of my SportsShooter profile page is a link to the image itself on's site. It was image #36.

My image also made 3rd place in the "Sports Action" section of NPPA's "Best of Photojournalism 2012". Check the link for info:

Have a great day and thanks for viewing my profile!
