Hey All,

I was trackside shooting some pictures at the Toyota Grand Prix yesterday, and figured I would share a few..

I'LL HAVE SOME VIDEO SOON.. THESE CARS WERE SCREAMING AROUND THE TRACK...

Unfortunately, I missed the celebrity race with Patrick Dempsey...

HERE IS THE MAZDA. :)















THIS WAS COOL.... UNFORTUNATELY I DIDNT HAVE MY CAMERA READY TO GET A NICE SHOT, BUT THIS MS3 CAME ZIPPING AROUND THE CORNER WITH A LEXUS... THEY WERE LEADING ALL THE CARS AROUND THE TRACK BEFORE THE RACE STARTED! MADE ME REALLY HAPPY TO SEE MY CAR LEADING ALL THE PORSCHE, M3, FERRARI, ETC...



AND ME (LEFT) :)

Nice shots! I'm hoping to make it to some Grand-Am races this year at Lime Rock. Fortunately, last year I was able to volunteer with a ALMS team at the Northeast GP. Unfortunately that team, Farnbacher-Loles, went south during the winter when the owner was arrested for embezzlement. Oh well, still it was fun getting to work on that car up close...911 GT3-RSRs are sweet!

Nice pics! How did you get track side, and what type of camera did you use to take the pics?

You didn't miss much with the celebrity race except when tony hawk got ran off the track. but the Le Mans race was pretty tight it was the first time I have seen anything from the GT and LMP class. Did you have a press pass or something?

The primary camera we were shooting on, was a RED ONE, and when I wasn't helping with that, I snapped these on my little Canon XSI DSLR with a 100mm lens... had my little Flip camera there too.

Yea, scored some press/photo vests and passes

here is a clip from the Flip....

How did you manage to score press passes? Was it a contest or do you work in some form of media?

Nice video :)

Embedding usually only works automatically with Youtube. Others require code. It also requires that the Administrator have embedding enabled (which it may not be).

My line of work is with cinema cameras, and I have done a good handful of freelance work, so random opportunities like this are a part of the job i guess... I'm not complaining. :)

good to know... but sucks that we all know how on top of things the administrators are... vimeo owns youtube.. guess I need a youtube account now..
