The Fury

Stop Trying Too Hard.

I had a good day on Sunday at the Silverstone 500. In fact, this is one of the best days I’ve had shooting from behind the fence so far. I can’t explain why, nor am I totally pleased with the results (for which I shall explain) but for the first time in a long while,…

Rush

The Blank Canvas.

Some say that a blank canvas is the way to find true creativity. A way to let your mind run free without constraint or manipulation. It allows you to utilise whatever tools and media you want, to make the most of the space and apply your ideas in any which way you see fit. It’s…

Zero Chance

Changing My Mind.

Experiments are often a good thing. They can test you in both knowledge and capability. They make you step out of your comfort zone and help you think a little more. I should try experiments more often. If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you’ll have no doubt experienced the frustrations I…

Postions Remain

Craving Variety.

Another weekend and another 12 or so hours spent wandering the gravelled, wind blasted spectator areas of the Buckhamptonshire border. The promise of a cracking weekends photographics boded well; a monster grid was on offer for the Blancpain Endurance and 55 fast moving subjects for photographic interpretation over three hours of racing, not forgetting practice,…

Too Many Frames

A Blurred Background.

Somebody once told me that blurring a background doesn’t make a motorsport image. I laughed at that statement. Some of the most inspirational motorsport images I’ve seen have been blurry. Now I may have taken it out of context; this worldly advice was passed over on the wonder that is Twitter, where context and tone…

Guessed Apex

Creative Attempts.

I try to challenge myself every time I step out with my cameras. After my first year of shooting motorsport, I’ve made a conscious decision to be a little more adventurous with my images, get a little more abstract and to try techniques that may not come off. Harder angles, slower settings, to try and…

Before Flames

The Enduring Greyness.

Silverstone is hard work. There, I said it. As the closest circuit to me, and the one with all the biggest and most frequent events, it’s ironic how bland and grey it can be. Especially when the weather doesn’t feel like playing ball. When it’s sunny, it’s great. When it’s raining, it’s great. When it’s…

Warp Speed

Painting with Lights.

And I’m back on it. After what felt like an eternity over the winter, my first opportunity for some 2017 photography cruised on into town. The Hankook 24hr. I’m not going to lie; I missed shooting the events over the winter. I turned off for three or so months, resorting to recirculating older images on…

To Close to the Fence

Novembrrrrr.

Shooting pictures of insanely expensive, fast moving machines with expensive equipment at exotic locations around the world has a certain glamour attached to it. It’s part of the appeal of Motorsport as a subject for photography; The cars, the style, the celebrity, the locations and weather are all aspects of this past-time that appeal in…

Colours of the Kerb

The First Version.

One of the final trips of the season; a journey to the plains of Snetterton and the inaugural Prototype Cup meet. It’s not often you get to watch, let alone shoot the first of what may well be a pretty big deal. I wasn’t convinced that it would be worth the drive on the Saturday;…
