If your in-tune with our GNCC coverage, you've seen our newest East Coast photographer's work in the Darkroom galleries. Kendra DuPont is an Indiana-native with a passion for taking photos. If you haven't seen her work you can check out her GNCC Darkroom photos, and with that we introduce to you Kendra DuPont.
Who is Kendra DuPont?
Kendra DuPont is a 21 year old from Evansville, IN. I used to attend University of Southern Indiana, but I took some time off since traveling was getting in the way. I work for eScore transponders, and I used to work for Racer Productions being a full-time registration girl. Now, I just help out if they need me.
How long have you been shooting photography?
I got my first SLR when I was 16. Ever since then, I haven't put it down. So, for a good six years.
When did you start shooting action photography?
In 2007. My boyfriend at the time rode dirtbikes, so it was fun for me to shoot while he was riding.
So what do you enjoy most about action photography?
For action photography, it's the adrenaline rush. Knowing you are capturing such a face-paced sport; it makes you feel like you are in it too. What I enjoy about photography in general, is I love freezing that certain moment in time. A picture lasts a lifetime and holds so many memories.
What is your all time favorite photo?
I'm going to have to go with Justin Bogle at the 2011 World Mini's. Everyone loved it. I even think Justin still has it as his Twitter background.
Aside from racing what else do you like to shoot?
I like to shoot anything from engagement pictures to landscape. If I see something artsy, I always have my camera.
Where can we see more of your work?
I have a facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/KDuPont-Photography/103509476377510 and I also have a website: www.kendradupont.com, but I haven't been updating them much since most of my work I do now just goes up on this site.
More importantly, where do you see yourself as a photographer in the future?
I hope to still be apart of this company. I see this site getting as big as the moto side and I want to be part of the off-road family as it grows.
