Just back following another enjoyable week in the Isle of Man. Weather was hot and the action hotter. Tried out a few new places to shoot and they didn't disappoint.

Shot 1: Michael Dunlop at Creg Ny Baa on the way to victory in the opening superbike race. Taken with the 1dx with 300f2.8

Nice pics, thanks for sharing!

I was born and raised on the IOM but now living in Australia, it's great to see it again. :-)

Awesome shots. I wish some day to go there and watch, but man what a transportation circus to get there.

It is most definitely the most awesome racing spectator experience ever, you can be literally feet away from these insanely fast bikes, going insane speeds. Mind blowing!

All great pics, I wish I was there.

Having a media bib for the week is a real bonus. You are allowed extremely close to the action. On Friday evening at Ballagarey, Michael Dunlop went past us on the rear wheel about 170mph within touching distance. The rush of air almost knocks you over. Its that close. You do put your life in their hands. One mistake and you're gone.

Amazing shots. Really like #1. This is pretty much the other side of the world for me, but would love to shoot it one day.

Excellent shots.


Sony A7R IV, FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS. Plus quite a bit of Canon gear.

I like what I like.

No kidding!! ;) How easy is that to achieve?

I've watched a few times at the Sulby Glen Hotel, same there, so close and soooo fast. Unforgettable! :)

This was at the Manx GP 2008 and I was opposite the hotel but it shows how close the spectators are to a 180 odd mph bike

TT Media pass is not hard to get provided you can prove you have the necessary PL insurance, are shooting for a media company or publication and you've had photos published in the last 12 months. The benefit of getting one is that you're allowed to shoot in "restricted" areas which the general public obviously can't. I'm still very much an amateur shooting in with the pros, but it is possible to make your mark if you can provide what the media guys need and can provide it quickly.
Back home the media bib means virtually nothing as you generally have to shoot from where the public area around the track. The only obvious benefit is being allowed access to the grid.
