Well, first event done as a wedding photographer. Friend asked me if I could be the photographer for his bro’s wedding and waffled around the idea for two days then decided to go for it… jump right into the fire. A lot of learnings but overally, a great experience. Do have another one coming this Saturday as a second-shooter, so crossing my fingers that the weather will be nice again like today.

So took 3138 photos over the three days, and spent probably about 16-18 hours so far doing the post processing and uploading the good ones to motorsport.com. Have a selection of images from the three days on flickr here.

Here’s me at the beginning of Mario Andretti Straightaway while waiting for the Formula BMW qualifying session to begin.


So I never really had a long weekend resting or relaxing, but watching/photoing the race in front of the crowds makes it all worth while!

Well another one wrapped up, fourth year there, second year with a media pass. :) Took a LOT of photos, and so far, I probably got through about a third of the stuff, or maybe less. Even though this wasn’t a paid job, the time spent there shooting in front of everybody else (well maybe trying to find a spot that wasn’t blocking other photographers, or waiting for that one spot you want!) was well worth it. Of course, there’s the post processing that needs to be done afterwards, but it’s all good.

Rest of the SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Sunday race here. Note that other photos from another photographer will be in this set.
