Keeping On Track
I live my life by my diary. Emails or calls come in with bookings and I put them onto the diary. My job is then simple, to follow the diary and be in the right place at the right time always making sure I keep on track sticking to the path. I enjoy my job and I enjoy photographing most of what I photograph but it's often not what I would choose to photograph if this were purely a hobby and at times it can be frustrating to not have time for personal projects or sometimes even the time just to stop and grab an opportune landscape scene!
Back when I first started my photography career, employed to work for a local newspaper company in a time before children, I would often visit Snetterton race circuit for British Touring Cars or British Super Bikes. I haven't done that for probably fifteen years now so when a shoot took me very near to Snetterton I grabbed the chance to fill a spare half hour with a quick visit and as luck would have it a range of cars were on track for pre-season testing.
It also gave me the chance to try out the Tamron SP AF150-600 F5/-6.3 Di VC USD on fast paced motorsport. I have in the past always used a Nikon AFS 300 F2.8 prime lens with a 1.4x or 2x convertor when I needed extra reach. It does obviously have the limitation of being fixed length so you are restricted to the options available at any specific point on the track where as the Tamron although requiring more light has that massive zoom range on offer.
