Chaps, racing season is rapidly approaching, for those that are serious about covering some motorsport rounds this year please drop me a mail: email@example.com with:
A summary of any track photography experience, I'm not expecting you to be ace, just have at least done some motordport work before and have some reasonable kit, I'll be able to provide training and some kit to borrow.These will involve some travel (UK). I may not be able to join you at all rounds and you would be attending under my company name.
I potentially have events every weekend this year, and would work on a sales commision basis, (I allready have a very well established sales site where all the riders visit often. There are a few contractual commitments to uphold (and these get the media passes!). I will arrange trackside access for you.
I'll be working hard on this over the next week or so (i.e my holiday this week is giving me some time!), so please let me know your interest ASAP. this is full days work, sometimes full weekends, and there could be hundreds of bikes at each meeting, so it's not a jolly. But the sales can be worth it.
If I get anough interest then it might kickstart me into setting up the onsite printing facility. which would potentially be much more finacially attractive.
-If you are hoping to cover some events of your own this year and looking for gaining trackside access, and an established site for selling images, I would be happy to set up a photograhers logon on my site, and assist with trackside passes (sometimes these need to be apid for to the event organiser) you can then sell through my site.
