Half a Grid.

Inappropriate Choices.

I’ve taken images at Silverstone several times this season, and invariably, with the limited access I have, some images are occasionally similar. So for my trip to the BTCC at my ‘local’ circuit, I decided to try something a little different. A challenge if you will. The week before, I had an conversation with a…

Champagne Gurn

Just a Quick Dash.

The final visit to the British GT for the season and my second trip up to Donington Park this year. I was unsure if I should go to this event, as there were plenty of alternative offerings over the weekend, and I’d already spent most of Friday at the Goodwood Revival, or on the M25.…

Kinara Sundown.

A doff of the cap.

This year was my second visit to the Goodwood Revival. It’s a brilliant event, not just for the atmosphere, nor for the unique approach of just about everyone that attends, but for the huge sense of appreciation you get watching what is effectively priceless machinery do what it was originally designed for. Race. The weekend…

The Mirror

Working the Wing.

It’s not often that you get to explore the angles and architecture of the Silverstone wing. That monolith of a building, spectacular and proud, is the stuff of important people; sponsor types, media operatives and corporate luvvies. It’s looked upon by us mear mortals as a grail, an aim; One day, I might get to…

Splitter

The dust of Norfolk.

Another visit to the British GT, but my first visit to Snetterton and the tranquil turns of this central Norfolk circuit. Alright, so they were not so tranquil especially due to the 30 or so cars that were lined up on the grid for this the pen-ultimate round of the 2016 British GT Championship. I…

Drag Strip

Formel Eins ist Zurück.

Formula One was back. That was the line in the German media used to entice interest in F1’s return to the country and the Hockenheimring. I was fortunate enough to be taken along as a bit of a treat. My first visit to an event outside of the UK, and my first Grand Prix hosted…

Fruity highlights

One hour and forty.

That was all the time I had. One hour and forty minutes. A 30 minute qualifying session and then a 70 minute race. The International GT Open is short, sharp and sweet. This warm and sunny weekend at Silverstone meant some quick fire planning was in order. A far cry from a fortnight ago, when…

Valve

It was a test, right?

So the British Grand Prix came and went, and it was good. Luckily, us Formula One enthusiasts were also treated to the lesser spotted in-season test the week after the Grand Prix, and a second opportunity to catch the cars lapping the plateau. With action all-day Tuesday and Wednesday and tickets cheap, it was a…

Crosswind

A great picture is…

A great picture is knowing where to stand. But what if you know where to stand and your not allowed? Welcome to the challenge of shooting my third Grand Prix. Attempting to evolve your photography and technique, whilst battling against the random nature of the crowds and the obstacles that are present is a tough…

The one behind

The ones that get away.

During most of the events I get out to, there are usually several grids of glory hungry racers to take advantage of. To not take advantage of them would be a waste of laps and camera handling practice. For sure, there are occasions where I’ll use the support races to review a few images, take…
