Try and Keep Up!

Creativity Taken Seriously!

About JT

Brandi and JT Norton

Photographer, writer, videography, media support specialist, public relations, and artist. I personally believe in many things but do not impose those views on others. I just try and look at things without blinders on and do my best to help others using my creative skills to do it. My pages are filtered, so as not to reflect poorly on my partnerships.

I bring all necessary equipment and I do not disclose what I have or use to the public. I only discuss it with my partnerships. I come with ANYTHING we need to get the coverage we are after.

I use exclusively ADOBE editing/processing software (I have access to all software packages) and Apple technology. I do have one Windows computer but is used more for quick edits or content verification once posted. I have my hotspot, so we do not have to depend on the events for access, and the unit I have can support 15 devices.

I’m available to my partnerships 24/7, and they all have a way to call me directly if needed. I do have a privacy policy of you have an interest in that stuff. (top right)

Here are some quick facts for you. I am an old guy but a few of the younger folk can’t keep up, father of three boys {not boys anymore}, Associate Degree Commercial Art (yeah back when it was still called that), 18 years of technical field and call center service customer service, both leadership and non-leadership roles, 2011 CSX Photographer of the Year, five excellence awards as a supervisor, two as a field technician, one as a field Contractor, I traveled 21,500+miles in 2019 cover 27 events. Have supported teams, publications, and media outlets in 23 different states … just last year

Me and my teacher (my best time 11.28 128mph 1/4 mile) I don’t race a lot still new.

Have been bitten by 3 venomous snakes, 2 venomous spiders, ran over by a boar, attack by a cow, 4 run-ins with alligators in my kayak, stung by a nest of hornets. and had 1 run-in with a pair of dolphins that decided I was a play toy. Have been published 42 times (this includes Europe which is content I do not post here in the states)

Coldest temp worked -11, hottest temp 157, been married once and I still get along with my X (nope not that way – she has remarried) Florida is my birth state so there are a few of us left down here.


2020 partnerships: AFM Racing, / JT’s Auto & Cycle, Schnitz Racing, Vantine Nitro-Sports, Fast Andie Rawlings, LSR Nitro-Harley,, Balch Racing, and WhatAGraphic Please visit my Partnership page at top of the page. (two silent partnerships)

2019 partnerships: AFM Racing, / APE Race Parts, Schnitz Racing, Vantine Nitro-Sports, Fast Andie Rawlings, Balch Racing, and WhatAGraphic . (three silent partnerships)

Recap 2019 was a fantastic year, 27 events 21,500+ miles traveled supporting people, companies, and teams, with their passions. Influencing tens of thousands in the real world face to face but also 9.4 million via our social media partnerships. I also got to see great places like the Grand Canyon South rim and Zion National Forest in our travels because I fill in my down with something because it creates content for us.

9.4 this number is actually much higher than I thought but one of my silent partnerships has the ability and resources to this kind of data that I can not see. The entire JT/T&KU! Program as of 3-25-2020 reached 27.9 million across all our platforms in 2019.

My 18 years of cable and satellite-based customer service experience, which includes corporate management roles, has given me the communication skills to interact with people in the real world. This experience has taught me how to deal with people in ways most people do not get exposed to. I have over ten years in the motorsports and event media support services and have built a positive reputation for myself and my partnerships. Relationships are extremely important and ,I work hard to honor them. Creative media support services, based in Orlando, Florida, but covering events across the United States ranging from media event support, real estate photography, publications, wildlife photography, non-photographic, team support, and artistic services.

Influences on JT Norton

Arno I miss you buddy.

There are people that have been in our lives that affect us but then there are those that influence and shape us for a lifetime.

For me one of them was Arno, We would spend countless summers hanging out running and playing role playing games, working the local yearly haunted houses or just chilling out drawing or going through his endless collection of comic books. We met and he taught me how to run D&D games (game master GM) which lead to countless other great games, stories, memories and fun times with friends for many summers to follow. Sometimes this included staying up around the clock.

Arno was the reason I met my former wife and now have three wonderful boys. When I left home to be my own the first place I had was a room rented from his mom. Before Arno I hung out with some not to nice people and we were doing some things we should not have been doing. This life changing meeting and growing up with Arno took me to a better place and I’m a better man because of him.

Thank you friend you will be missed BUT NEVER forgotten because you’re a part of me!
