    Rally in Detail: shooting as a spectator.

    I don't hardly visit this forum anymore but thought this might actually interest some people who like to shoot motorsports events. I myself shoot motorsports almost exclusively in series such as ALMS, Grand-Am, and Indycar, for various web, print, and personal clients. People ask me all the...

    Cheap prime Nikon tele?

    If you can find a used 300 F/4 AF (the old version, not the newer AF-S version) I think you'd be happy with it. The AF speed is not what I call great, but if you can track the subject (kart) for a bit before you take the shot I think it should be fine. I bought mine used in 2005 and in terms of...

    Dakar 2010!

    Can anyone identify the background music thats played about a minute into the Eurosport coverage of stage 4 when it says "What you missed". It sounds like symphony type music.

    Formula Drift 2009 - Round 5

    I wasn't planning on going to this event but was told that I would have media credentials waiting for me. So I thought "what the hell" and decided to make the drive up for the practice/qualifying day. Unfortunately I wont be able to cover the actual race day because I have another event to be...

    Portland Historic Races + IMSA GTP....Lots of photos

    And here is the last set of photos from this weekend. The weather today cloudy and then it started raining. A lot of cars and drivers decided not to race in the wet. Since there was not much action on track, I found myself doing a lot more "experimental" shots wandering around the pits. 44 45...

    Yes this event is every year. There is also another vintage race event held here usually in september every year, which also features a giant British car gathering and swap meet.

    Portland Historic Races + IMSA GTP....Lots of photos

    Yeah for me, seeing the GTP cars is like a dream. I wasn't even alive during the time these cars would have been racing for real. Well I guess I would have been 4 years old in 1993, the last year of IMSA GTP. I do as much reading as I can about them, but seeing even a few on track is awesome for...

    2009 Northwest Historic Races

    I know they put on an event in Portland in September, although I'm not sure about another one at Pacific Raceways. As far as the media pass goes, you have to be working for some kind of media outlet or company, so in a way this means you have to take good photos. If this is something you are...

    2009 Northwest Historic Races

    I had a media pass so thats why I could shoot from down by the barriers. However, most of the time I found myself shooting from regular spectator areas.
