Photographers often find themselves at at events surrounded by hundreds, sometimes thousands of people that have come to watch. More often than not though we are there to photograph whatever is happening in front of us, but what I find just as interesting is what's going on behind us. A passionate fan can offer up the same, if not better, photographic opportunities than whatever the event can.
So here they are, a few of my favorite images of fans, spectators and the general public that make each event possible by offering up their time and hard earned money. It's about time you got your moment in the spotlight.
