It is time to say goodbye, to wave a fond farewell to a endeavor that has been with me for so long…

Over the last 10 years I have been working hard to hone my skills at motorsport photography to a level that means I can produce a shot that makes me go, yes, that could make it into a magazine. For nigh on 10 years, I have searched the angles, the hardware, the settings, the circuits, the compositions, the frame rates, I have searched so very hard. For 10 hungry years I have managed to go to about 4 races a year and expected myself to reach a level of competency that rivaled the elite of the motorsport genre, 4 weekends a year to rival those that do it for 9 months of the year!

This year, it was a struggle, a complete and utter soul shattering struggle. The shots were simply not there from the public enclosures; the clarity without the fences, the depth from a low angle, the purity of the car and driver without distractions…Yes, I know that there are plenty of the atmosphere shots, the ones with heads and blurred fences and cars just visible, you even see the pros casting their net for those shots during a race weekend. But those shots were not what I wanted, they were not challenging enough…I wanted the pure race car visibly bending space with the ferocity of its efforts…I WANTED THAT!!

So, at Spa, I tried one last time:

I love 1 & 4.

I'm not pro so do not give tips, all I can say is tha I wish I could capture shots like this. I have always shot on burst mode but the next time I go to a track, I'm going to shoot on one shot and try to make each picture count.

How to you shoot your shots? You seen very passionate about what you do and from your post have lots of experience. So do you shoot one shot or burst (obviously not when panning)?


I'm not as think as you confused I am..

I really like the last three,very good indeed.

Maybe some wider stuff might be worth a try ,as I really like to see a few scenic and broader compositions.

I envy anyone that can shoot F1 in Europe :(

Sad to see your quitting, but good luck with future endeavours!
