Off season experiments.

I’m not a fan of the off season. It gets a little boring when you have not much to focus on, new, exciting material isn’t forthcoming the next event to shoot isn’t for a month or two. In the past, you would’ve probably enjoyed the downtime or shifted your focus to another pastime or opportunity,…

Radness

The End of the Road.

That is it. The end of another year of high speed photographic adventures. Only my second year too, although it feels like I’ve been doing this forever. Ha ha not really, it feels like I’ve been doing this for about two years! It’s been a wild season, with plenty of new experience and a few…

Painted Sky

All Hail Gold.

Race Tracks are pretty bland places. Tarmac, occasional greenery and now and again, a little advertising colour. I’m betting when most folks think of racetracks, they think of the F1 splendor – Neat, tidy, vibrant colour, full grandstands, famous faces and immaculate presentation. Us motorsport fans know different. They can be hostile, scrappy expanses. Cold, miserable…

Dirty Two

Standing Around.

What camera is best for motorsport photography? I think that is a daft question, and ‘one that takes pictures’, is often my chipper response. The more experience I gain, the more I witness how folks relate equipment to quality images – no, sorry – that’s the wrong term; with quality photography. But then that often…

Formula Fifth

10,000 Frames.

At this time of year, the events start to thin out a little, and the opportunities for the adventurous motorsport photographer become a little sparse. I’ve noticed this quite a bit this year, as my usual routine of an-event-each-weekend has dropped off to one every fortnight, or even longer. In the meantime, I try and…

Start

Some Light Importance.

Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light. I read that quote a long time ago somewhere. I can’t remember where, but it was a while ago. I often go back to it every now and again and try to make sense of it. For instance; what do you do if you…

Reverse

It Never Rains.

A few weeks back, I joked on twitter about it raining at the Goodwood Revival. I was pulled up by a friend who told me that it’s not nice when it rains at the Revival; I was of course joking and made my excuses that I was attempting some form of reverse psychology on the…

It Spins

Silverstone Undressed.

Silverstone is a beast of a circuit. 3.6 miles of high-speed, twisted tarmac, adorned with some of the most spectacular corners know to racer and machine. From a drivers point of view – and I can only speculate here as my experience behind the wheel at the ‘Stone is limited – it is a bucket…

Into Depth

Inside the wire.

It had to happen at some point. I have had my first opportunity to shoot pictures from inside the wire. No obstructions, new angles and access to all the picturesque goodies just throwing themselves towards the camera. It was so easy, I couldn’t believe it! Wasn’t really, was it? No. This sudden, new found perspective…

Delboy

History for a day.

I had not visited the Silverstone Classic until last week, although I have seen and heard plenty about it. A weekend of nostalgia, celebrities and racing around the international circuit in vehicles that really should be in a museum. But these machines were built to race and that what the Silverstone Classic is all about.…
