I really have been so neglectful of my website and blog entries since the end of season 1 back in June. I didn't even write a blog for the season finale, which was bonkers. Unfortunately due to my wedding photography commitments, the off season has been very very busy & I have vanished...but I'm back!
Season 2 testing was very different to season 1. With the teams having designed their own power trains, getting to the back of the cars with a camera is pretty much impossible. Since I'm well known throughout the paddock, most teams trusted I wouldn't allow pictures into the wrong hands, I just avoided shooting the internals of the cars period.
As well as shooting for Current E for all 6 test days, I did studio work and private photography for Mahindra Racing, Venturi Racing and new client Dragon Racing. A lot of the studio photography I'm not allowed to publish until the teams have made the shots public themselves...sorry about that. The weather throughout the tests was very challenging, the gorgeous sunshine from the season 1 tests was nowhere to be seen. I also made sure my track shots were not the same angles as last year...that was tough!
So with Beijing around the corner, I'm starting to get excited about the season ahead. With prior knowledge of the circuit, I should be in a better position than this time last year, except for the fact that I will expect my pictures to be a lot better...no pressure then!
So without further delay, here are my personal favourite shots from the 3 Donington tests, enjoy!
