Artist Bio - mjsmotophotos

Mjsmotophtos is owned and operated by artist and adventurer Mary Rinell.

About the artist:

Mary has been a light chaser since the early 90’s when she would venture out in the Pacific Northwest with her father. She has shot subjects in motion her entire life; beginning mainly with race cars, motorcycles and bicycles, and her dad's favorite animal the eagle. In 2014 she decided to quit her job as a motorcycle technician and pursue photography full time. She feels extremely blessed, and doesn’t see herself doing anything else, God willing. She is very passionate about her career, and loves the opportunity to “tell your story” through her images.

Her portfolio includes events such as EnduroCross, Round 7 of the AMA Western Hare Scramble series, the American Flat Track AZ Mile, and 2017 King of the Motos. She has had publications in Dirt Rider Magazine, Moto Mag and AZ Off-Road; and has been mentioned on several prestigious channels such as the X-Games and ESPN. Mary has been the sole photographer for the Arizona Motorcycle Riders Association (AMRA) for 3 seasons, and has apprenticed under the well known Mark Kariya; photojournalist for such channels as Dirt Rider, Cycle News, and Dirt Bike Magazine.

Mary's current projects are the 2017 EnduroCross series, and the 2017-2018 AMRA series.  Please follow the CONTACT link on the HOME page for interest in future assignments.

A note from Mary:

Above all else I would like to thank Ron Cook at Adobewerks and Mark Kariya for their mentorship and coaching, AMRA and it's members for welcoming me in and allowing me to grow, and everyone else who has believed in me throughout the years. To the ones who told me I could, and even to the ones who told me I couldn't; because they might have been correct at the time but they aren't now. And more importantly to my other half, who has continued to encourage my desire to chase golden rays of sunshine. Through all of this I have learned that endurance truly is the key to success. And that being resourceful is more valuable than having resources. Thank you.
