MACON, Georgia – At-home motorsports photographer Ben Rickets was worried that his business would shut down during the Coronavirus panic as real-world racing was stopped for months. Luckily for Rickets, eSports took off and so did his business. “I got the call from an eSports team and immediately grabbed my iPhone 6 Plus and pulled up the stream via youtube and got to work!” said Rickets.
“I was really worried my business and career would be over, but thank god sim racing streaming is here and they have low standards for photography. That being said, I’m ready for real racing to really kick off again so I can keep moving there. Hopefully those members in Facebook groups will still enjoy my work.”
