Spring is finally here! Along with nice weather and longer days comes the drift season. Its a nice way to dust off the camera gear and get the creative mind going again. The opening event “Opening Moves” from Club Loose takes my 2nd sentence and throws it out the window. It was cold, miserable, and wet. Regardless of the conditions, drivers still came out to rip. I didn’t stay long since I had to work, but still got some decent shots. Now before I post the images, I have to say this. The people on media have to be dedicated. It is not a fun job to do at times, especially this event. Like I stated before, it was cold and wet. Not just wet, but raining. It was horrible. At one point my 70-200 wanted to give up on life. So next time you drivers get sweet shots, just remember what we media people had to go through to get it. I would be lying if I said I had fun because I didn’t. I wasn’t going to go after waking up at 7am to a downpour. However I wanted to see my friends I don’t regularly see. It was nice seeing them, even if it was just a hi/bye moment. Anyway here are some shots from Water…I mean Opening Moves.
Now skip ahead to a month later. Sunny skies, warm(ish) weather, leaves on the trees, hell yea this is what I’m talking about. Spring Moves was more like it. Liora and I got there early so we could get some pit shots and bs with people. After the media meeting we got out on the track and got to work. After a bit of looking thru my previous shots, Sal got a lil to greedy and spun into the jersey barrier before the 2nd turn. He hit pretty hard and smashed up his e36 m3 pretty good. Luckily it wasn’t too bad and he drove off. He’ll be back soon ripping again. I had to peace early again for work and missed hop driving like a maniac into the bank. This might also be the last event I shoot photos at. I’m trying to move into video and been buying equipment to better assist me. I have no idea how to use an video editing software so we will see how it goes haha. Wish me luck.
