For me, Formula 1 is the most exciting sport to follow, and one of the very few I like watching. And if you’ve been wondering what it’s like behind the scenes, Australian F1 photographer Kym Illman will tell you all about it. He’s one of just a few dozen “permanently accredited” F1 photographers, and in this video, he will tell you how everything works in this job.
I think I like Formula 1 photos as much as I do the racing itself. And when I saw Lampert Benedek’s announcement of Formula 1 series, I knew something awesome was coming up. And I was right: Lampert has created some darn amazing F1 photos without even going to the races. He made his own track and used model cars and practical effects to create miniature, yet realistic photos. He kindly shared them with us along with some BTS shots and video.
Do you like watching Formula 1 races? I find them really exciting, and as you can imagine – it’s also exciting to photograph them. In this short but fantastic video, Formula 1 shows some love for amazing, dedicated photographers who capture the thrilling moments of races all over the world.
Game Boy camera was launched twenty years ago, and technology has advanced immensely since then. Nevertheless, experimenting with this toy camera in the modern era is still kind of fun. Photographer Tim Binnion recently brought his to 2018 Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, China. He captured the Formula 1 race with the 0.016-megapixel camera, and the results are unusual and pretty amazing.
Kurt Bradley is a former competitive driver turned motorsports photographer. He’s shot top-level international racing events such as Formula 1, MotoGP, and WEC, but also attends regional track days and car shows, plus the X-Games.
Kurt has experience with photographing the unique setting of nighttime road racing. Few races go into the night – two of the most famous are the 24 Hours of Le Mans and 24 Hours of Daytona – but the visuals are one-of-a-kind. Kurt attended Daytona this year and was able to share some his insights from the race, which he shot for Jalopnik, a popular automotive blog.
Getting credentials to any Foruma 1 event is a notable achievement. Thus, when presented with the opportunity, it’s best to act in a professional manner and not get in the way of the teams and drivers when they’re going about their business.
During this week’s pre-season testing in Barcelona, it appears one photographer didn’t abide by the unwritten rules when he defiantly stood in front of the new W07 Formula 1 vehicle of Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton while his team was making tweaks in the pit.
As you can see in the clip, he almost paid the price by becoming an unwilling sponsor on the Mercedes team’s new livery, even after he was asked twice to move out of the way (he was actually asked three times, as can be seen in the full-length video below).[Read More…]
