    Trackside

    A large portion of our work is done out on the track. We’ve visited circuits around the world; EuroSpeedway Lausitz, Zandvoort, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Pikes Peak. Whilst its nice to visit a new track there is no substitute for home grown knowledge, knowing where the cars skip the kerbs to which places to stand.

    Often the best shots are of the unsung heroes, those working on the side, working all night to fix the drive shafts or studying the telemetry long in to the evening hours. It is important to be able to get these individual story telling moments without interfering or getting in the way of the team trying to work during the race in often cramped conditions.

    Moments

    The story of each weekend is different, capturing that special event for your sponsors or clients may need more than just a close up of the action. Each event has its own moments, own characteristics and atmosphere. With a host of past knowledge to aid you and call upon, we can help you capture that feeling and bring it to life for all to enjoy.

    Personal

    Manufacturers and media need the best shots of them in action, we often work for the teams themselves. Often it is upcoming teams who need the best shots to promote themselves to attract new sponsors. Sponsorship is difficult to come by, so its vital to use professional imagery in all promotional material.
