“While I enjoy photography, I do not consider myself a professional, I am just a trackside mum capturing memories.”

You can’t have a national series round without a photographer to capture the action and Allison Ralph from Southern City Photography is relishing at the opportunity to get the job done.

A mother of two, a dedicated BMXA official and an enthusiastic BMX admirer. Ralph got involved in the BMX scene when her youngest started competing six years ago, Ralph has been a volunteer at Southern City BMX Club ever since and has never looked back.

“My favourite parts about BMX is the club camaraderie, the friendships formed, the team spirit and the family support that brings us all together… oh and the racing of course!” Ralph explained.

Jumping into the photography side of things a couple years later, Ralph’s main reason was to help promote the club by posting the photos on the Facebook page.

“The kids (and big kids) love to see themselves on their bikes and they share the photos with their friends which in turn goes some way to raising awareness of our sport and bring in new members,” Ralph said.

Alongside getting the opportunity to capture the action, Ralph is also excited that the national series is making its way to Tasmania.

“Recognition… finally. It has been too long since Tasmania has seen national action on our tracks. By having a national round here, we can build on that and raise awareness of the sport in Tasmania and hopefully grow our member base. It also makes us feel that we are truly a part of the BMXA Family,” Ralph said.
