Australian Formula One Grand Prix Melbourne – 2016
G’day! 2016 just keeps getting bigger and bigger, having just gotten back from the Australian Formula One Grand Prix in Melbourne.
While it wasn’t my first time at the Melbourne Grand Prix, it was my first time as a FIA Accredited Photographer, which allowed me access to photograph the Formula One cars alongside some of the best Motorsport Photographers in the world.
It lead to a busy but fun weekend, covering all the categories on track (including Porsche Carrera Cup, Australian GT and V8 Supercars) over the weekend as well as both the on and off track action from the Formula One paddock. While the weather was at best temperamental, I managed to take plenty of images I was happy with throughout the event, while also testing out some of the latest gear from both Canon and Nikon (often at the same time!).
Being able to sit in the international media center and compare my work against the other photographers was an insightful experience. While everyone has their own eye and look to their photos they like to achieve, I’m very happy with what I produced through out the event, while picking up ideas and concepts to think about for future events.
I have to say a big thanks to the team at Velocity Magazine for getting me the FIA Accreditation. I’ve been lucky enough to work with them over the last year and it’s good to see that relationship building to allow us all access to these world class events. If you want to see some of the work I produced from the weekend, make sure you pick up a subscription to Velocity Magazine, as they’ll have F1 content (and other features including my work) rolling out over the next few months – http://vmag.com.au.
Here’s a collection of some of my published work from around the internet.
