Race Retro 2012

The end of February every year sees Race Retro take over Stoneleigh Park near Coventry. The highlight for me is the live rally stage - a chance to get up close to some classic Group B rally cars as they are diven like their makers intended. No hermetically sealed...

Pit lane Skyline

Pit lane Skyline

Last weekend saw Trax come to Silverstone and another chance to be to shoot in the famous Formula 1 pit lane. No planning, no preparation - just a beautiful car and an unlocked garage. Rather that just hitting you with the eye candy, I thought I'd de-construct a few...

Shooting the JDM Drift Allstars

Shooting the JDM Drift Allstars

I've shot various types of motor sport and other fast moving subjects, but two weekends ago I got my first opportunity to shoot some drifting from the right side of the fence. For those that don't know, drifting is different to most motor sports where speed and times...
