F1 photography isn't exactly what I've previously imagined before the Seminar. Thanks to Canon and Sutton brothers for the remarkable experience!
Thats what i was there for, the experience sharing, the history telling...very nice. Im glad they didnt touch too much on tech stuff equipment...just the bare essentials.
but some of the questions asked is like....erm... sigh. hahahaha always the film vs digital questions, damn boring.
Im impressed but the numerous "lucky breaks" and opportunities presented to them throughout their careers, followed by plain hard work...these guys worked from ground zero, they know how everything works. Unlike freshies who get plonked into high posts without ground zero experience.
They made interested in reading the F1 news in papers, i never followed the news before, am clueless bout the drivers too. They changed my views of motorsports.
These two lads breathe motorsports through their lungs, it's in their blood and the enthusiasm shows! It is NEVER too late for anyone to go into genre - you must be VERY passionate about it and armed with the know-how as well (hence their entrance tests for newbies). What's the point of shooting if you don't know where or how to capture the excitement and the story? These guys know it all (needless to say of course)!
I believe them when they say it is a tough profession... imagine you're down with a dripping faucet, it is a down pour outside and temperature is near 0 degrees, can you really miss a race of the year?
I agree, a few of the questions are like a bit lame... but that's expected in any Q&A session right?
What really impresses me most are the attachments with the Drivers! Imaging being Arton Senna's personal photographer - that is priceless!
