Sport Event Photography is all about capturing the mixture of action & emotions for me.
I read somewhere that there are 3 main images to get when shooting Golf, The Backswing, The Follow Through & The Player’s Reaction…. Action & Emotion!
Coming from a Rallying background, I have an insight in what is going through the Driver’s head. The concentration in his eyes searching out the line through the bend. The Service crew desperately trying to rebuild the car when the driver didn’t quite pick the right one!! ….and the ‘Trying Hard’ marks where he couldn’t go any faster! …. Action & Emotion!
Abingdon CARnival Stages Rally
Held on a Military base in Oxfordshire, The Abingdon CARnival brings together a wide range of wide range of machinery over the 2 day weekend event.
These images were taken on the Sunday’s special stage rally. Tight twisting section before opening up into the high speed straights of the runways. Always guaranteed to produce some real exciting action & the odd spill or 2 on the demanding roads around the base.
