This woman right here is the one you will find behind 'Kimberley Jessica Photography'.
I'm Kim (or Kimberley), living in a village in Essex.
I'm a primary school teacher in Harlow - Essex, a BSc Psychology student and an oval racing photographer.
I have loved photography from the moment I was able to pick up a camera and press the little button which captures an incredible moment (or something random as I was wasn't paying attention).
I received my first camera as a birthday present when I was around 10 years old and since then my passion for photography has increased - I love taking photos of absolutely everything and anything.
As I've grown older, I have received cameras for Christmas as newer ones were released, which eventually brought a Nikon d3200 into my hands - the camera which I shot my Mildenhall 2019 photos with. - I sold it, and miss it greatly.
Since shooting that meeting, I have upgraded to a Nikon d5600 and a Nikon d500 which are the cameras you will find me holding at most meetings.
I have been attending banger racing meetings ever since the moment I was born.
Fortunately I was born into a family of mechanics and racers, so I had the opportunity to experience the thrill of racing for all my life.
I distinctively remember photographing meetings at Henham Raceway (now called Stansted) and Mildenhall with an old phone with 2MP - the quality was absolutely horrendous and the photos are now god knows where, but I enjoyed it and that it was mattered most.
I stopped attending banger racing in 2012 and as I was too young to attend meetings on my own, and my family's interest drifted over to drifting - resulting in my unraced car being sold. But I knew for so long that my heart was set on bangers and I needed to eventually go back to that.
In 2019, I had a 'screw it' moment and decided to drag my mum along to Mildenhall on a very cold yet beautiful day in November for the gala meeting - this was where my passion for photography and racing came back together again. These photos are still my favourite to this very day.
Since then, I attended the Christmas Cracker at Kings Lynn in 2019 which was the first time I ever stepped foot in the Adrian Flux Arena, and they haven't been able to get rid of me since.
2020 was a challenging year to get out and photograph all meetings due to physical health being restrictive and a pandemic which unfortunately hit, however 2021 brought me my ORCi license and some spectacular meetings.
2022 will be a year of many, many more meetings from the infield of the Adrian Flux Arena & Stansted Raceway.
You may also see me at some other local(ish) tracks too!
