Course Format

UK, Europe, Worldwide - it's your choice. Based in the UK, most of the dates take place here. We often cover events in Europe and Scandinavia and you are welcome to join us trackside at any of the events we cover, or with any events that our associates hold.
After examining and discussing sample pictures in the theory sessions explaining what to look for, you will be taken to different areas around the track and shown a variety of techniques and "tricks of the trade." You then get opportunity to replicate the methods used under the close supervision of the tutor. Unlike landscape or architectural photography courses that use tripods for inanimate subjects, motorsport photography is more physical and involves "motor skill" and "muscle memory" training. Practicing newly learnt skills is very important in progressing into a competent motorsport photographer. You will have plenty of vehicles to practice on, and by the end of the day good shots will start to become second nature.

The course is available as either:

1 and a half day course

This format is suitable for intermediate or experienced photographers. It includes 2 x 1.5 hour seminars the evening before a track shoot, and then a full day trackside to practice the techniques. Continual support and feedback is provided throughout the day, as well as a final critique at the end of the day.

2 day course

This format is suitable for all levels of photographers. It includes a full day of seminars and practical demonstrations, and then a full day trackside to practice the techniques. Continual support and feedback is provided throughout the shooting day, as well as final critique at the end of the day.

3 day course

This format is suitable for all levels of photographers. It includes a full day of seminars and practical demonstrations, and then 2 full days trackside to practice the techniques. Continual support and feedback is provided throughout the shooting days, as well as final critique at the end of each day.

 

There are several different formats in which the shooting day training can take place

"1 to 1" Shadowing

This format is where you are at an event when the photographer is working for a client to supply pictures. You work with him all day long listening to how, and why, the shot is being taken, and the thought process behind the shot. You will be able to imitate and practice the same pictures receiving feedback on your technique and results.

"1 to 1" Personal Training

This format is where you and the tutor attend an event and you have the tutor’s undivided attention all day long. He will explain the theory of the shots to look out for, and demonstrate the techniques used to capture the pictures correctly. Your performance will be under constant assessment throughout the day.

"1 to 2" or "1 to 3" training

Why not bring your partner or a friend? Same as the 1 to 1, but as one photographer is shooting, the tutor is critiquing the others, and vice versa.
