My name is Brett Moist. I am a photographer based in Central Illinois. My passion for photography began when I was just out of high school. I was lucky enough to win a little point and shoot camera while working for Circuit city and I decided to take it to the local race track. Taking photos of race cars changed my life. I decided to take my new found interest in photography and turn it into my major in college.
I studied photography at Columbia College of Chicago, where I got my Bachelors Degree with a concentration in Photojournalism. Soon after graduation I set off on my journey to become a professional NASCAR photographer. In 2013 I would achieve that goal when I went to work for Harrelson Photography and LAT Photographic. Since then I have photographed for a variety of clients, including Toyota, Fedex, Lucas Oil, Hendrick Motorsports, and Team Penske Racing. Not only have I gotten to cover racing for some of the biggest names in the sport, but I became very skilled at the other aspects of being a commercial motorsports photographer.
In 2013 I turned my own photography company into a joint photo venture with my wife, Joanna, where we photograph weddings and a variety of portraiture together.
