Racers Edge Photography

My name is Chris Rael, I live in Laguna Niguel, California, and I am the owner of Racers Edge Photography.

We specialize in action sports photography, taking pictures of running events, triathlons, motor sports, bicycle racing, in-line skating, as well as the U.S.A. Olympic trials. You name it and we have photographed it. I have become successful as a minority-owned small business through the help of the Small Business Administration and my local Orange County Small Business Development Center. I took as many classes as I could and many of them were no-cost or very low cost. They informed me about securing loans and lines of credit, the different business entities, taxes and license requirements, how to plan strategically and financially, and to use available resources. The company has benefited my community by contributing to the local economy and providing a service that people enjoy, all because of the assistance provided by the SBA. The most rewarding aspect of owning Racers Edge Photography is the satisfaction in knowing I am preserving a memory of achievement for these athletes. They will always have a photographic record of their sometimes life-changing accomplishment to cherish forever.
