That may be for racing (I know nothing about pro racing) but it's honestly not like that for surfing (at least in CA and HI). It's just not that interesting for enough people to come just for a meet and greet. The same number of folks would attend whether or not you could talk to the surfers minus a tiny %. Talking to them is just an added bonus. Much smaller community I think than racing.

I'm struggling to understand the concept of car racing being more interesting than, say, paint drying.

It's pretty huge, not my thing; but I can't deny there's a lot of people out there that love it. I also can't deny that I really enjoy driving fast on both two and four wheels myself. Watching other folks do it just makes me jealous though. :D

Really?

Car related stuff is for 'car people' but the crowds present at a race might lead one to assume it is very popular. And the amount of sponsor dollars and TV coverage says it is worth it. Definitely recommend going out to an event and bring your camera. It is one of the most exciting things to shoot.

Still really struggling.

To each their own. What do you shoot that you find more interesting?


A good motorsports photo just evokes a story.

Paint drying, clearly.

I'm not into cars or car racing but if I had a chance at shooting a car race or another car event, I'd probably go for it just for the experience points ;)

My best friend follows Formula 1 assiduously. She goes whenever she can. Camps out for days and everything. I still don't get it.

I'd go if I was offered a 5-star hotel for free but I still wouldn't actually leave the hotel to watch those brain-bendingly tedious cars go round.

You WILL like car racing, dammit!

Just kidding, you've made it pretty clear that you don't get it. I still think you need to mention it one more time, with feeling :p

There have been quotes from the IOC posted in the past few weeks that say this is simply not the case. People can post tpo FB etc. What they cannot do is use their phone as a mobile hotspot in order to upload photos.

Hmmm maybe I'm not understanding this. So:

1. Someone could take a picture with their phone.
2. But are then not allowed to post it to facebook from their phone?

If it's a restriction on running a mobile hotspot because they don't want people copying photos from their real cameras to the internet quickly at the event, couldn't one just say...take pics to a micro sd card in a cf or sd to micro sd adapter, then simply put the micro sd card into the phone and upload it, taking all of 2 seconds longer? This makes no sense to me...then again, most of the restrictions don't...I haven't watched the olympics in probably 10 years, though. Gotta laugh at all the attempts to region lock various official sites that broadcast it (and how brainless it would be to get around if one cared), and other sports, online--we want a free market and free trade, but but---only one way, if you're an end user, you can't use content from outside your own country damnit, that's stealing from the people who bought the broadcast rights!!!

It's like they try to monetize everything as much as possible, and simply don't realize everyone else is laughing at them.

You hit the nail on the head. Monetize it... and don't care.

Wrong in some sense, you need a model release if you are going to use it for commercial reasons. And if the model is under 18, a parent or guardian has to sign the release regardless if used for non-/commercial reasons


Sorry but in the UK there is just no legal requirement what so ever for model release forms.

It maybe good practise to obtain one, just in case you wish to use the image commercially overseas, this is the reason stock agencies require them so as not to limit their market, but for sole UK use not needed.

You need parent or guardian consent for paid work of a child model,but not for unpaid work, also there are no age limits on photographing children in the UK ( apart from the obvious indecency laws )

Facebook is not in question. there have been statements saying this is not a problem, and the ticket agreement says nothing about posting images to the site, only sound and video. MHO is that the hotspot means you don't take 12 gigs of photos and use your phone to upload high res images to your site or to a newspaper or tv station for media use. You are using it as a computer/wireless access point and not as a basic smartphone that can take photos.
