Hearing that there will be a ceremony in Yuma MCAS for the new F-35B Sqdn. Anyone able to cover that tomorrow?


Saw a 3 ship on the flight tracker heading to Yuma. Saw on The Dew Line that they made it. Now hoping 1 or 2 make it to El Centro in March.

Jim,
You must have great friends if you can access F1 credentials just by talking to friends Anywhere I've read about becoming a photographer with F1 is as hard as getting to the moon.

I would love to meet up with everyone from here in April for the MotoGP race. Should be warmer than it was this weekend for sure. Chilly around 6 am in the parking lots and baking under the sun mid-day. The circuit still is a bit rough around the edges but should be in far better shape next year in my view.

Sometimes the influence my clients/friends have boggles my mind. I try not to grin in amazement, because one supposed to take it as the normal course of a day's events, it's not cool to chuckle, on the outside. Still, it's pretty difficult to keep a nonchalant demeanor when you're in Dallas in the morning and shooting in places like the Oval Office, the Supreme Court chambers or a Fortune 100 board room a few hours later. The abject terror and adrenaline associated with the task at hand helps to keep you grounded though. I rarely, very rarely, avail myself of my client's generosity, but I know it's always there and it means a great deal that we have the kind of relationships we do. Whether this credential thing comes to fruition or not really isn't as important as the fact that a very busy, extremely successful client dropped what he was doing and got excited about doing something for a friend.

For those in the Austin area, I sent a note to the COTA folks seeing about use of that tower when nothing is going on at the track. A friend of mine had the idea of using it for a skyline at sunrise shot, and if the distance doesn't prove too far, there might be a couple goodies there. I'll let ya know if that is something that will be open or not.

I caught a glimpse of downtown from an overpass or a hill on 130 the night I drove home. I think the distance will give you a bit of a challenge, but you never know until you try.

I love surprising my clients with what I capture, but it's especially satisfying to have a client who has the world at his fingertips, literally, break out into a big smile when he's working with you, because he's having such a good time, and knows that we've gotten jaw dropping imagery....................

Glenn, careful, the hamburger buffet in the grandstand was $20.00, but it included a glass of water, not bottled water, a glass of water.

I read the link attached to Ram's post - $15k is for a whole year, and includes at least 4 races, so its really on $3500 for the F1 race! Now its getting to be a good deal...



edit - man i hate getting caught with my pants down on a top page post!

I've been gone a few days; Marcia and I drove to Santa Fe for a long weekend. Of course, I brought the D800 along in case anything presented itself in the photographic line. Gotta love the late afternoon light in New Mexico...

Whoever wrote that MotoGP credentials are tough and limited is correct. They limit access to only 2-3 photogs from certain countries and for MotoGP at Indy this year I believe the total count was only around 33 or so photogs. They are one of the few series that also charges a fee, even for photojournalists, and it is STEEP. I tried shooting it this year and the publication didn't want to shell out the money as editorially it is not their sweet spot. Some tracks, depending on their agreement with the series or event, often have an allocation of vests they can give out. Again, depending on the series, you may have restrictions even with that vest on where you can go and what you can do. For IndyCar, if they catch you shooting video with your SLR....you be gone in a hurry. During a live race, only video guys on the start grid for certain series. It's all good though, plenty of good stuff to be had.

The best F1 photog, and perhaps just best racing photog, who truly makes art, is Darren Heath. He spends days before a race walking to discover the light and new shots versus prior years if he is going to the same facility. He is my benchmark in this game: http://www.darrenheath.com/
