Photos of 2003 CLSBN BHF Track Day

Ken and I have discussed me doing the photo shoot again of the BHF track day. As of now, I am planning on doing the shoot. I learned a lot shooting last year and have some more equipment too. So, I should be able to get some better shots this year.

I noticed last year that things didn't really get going until a few sessions had passed, so I may spend more of the morning sessions looking for different angles and getting some group photos.

If there's enough interest, I can take a couple of everybody, perhaps directly after the riders meeting. If we decide to do this we should provide an additional 10-15 minutes to get everyone situated. If not, that's cool too.

This is YOUR track day. I'll be there to watch and take pictures with, hopefully, some good results at a reasonable price for you.

I will post more about pricing as the date gets closer. Last time, I had a fun, though busy, day. I don't make a killing on this. Last time I made a few bucks after expenses.

Stay tuned for more info.

Dave

Mine would consist of me taking pics...then downloading them and emailing them to the people in the pic. Then they can do whatever they want from there. Sounds like Dave is doing a more "professional" thing...So now I can be the Unoffcial track day photo bitch.

SO I can't bring my camera and take pics
I guess I'll be too busy keeping Chris and Tony in line to care.....

It's your show......I'd like to see at least a couple guys out there taking shots.

Dave....make sure you get some good ones of me this year....
(And NO it wasn't my lack of riding ability )

Well I'm sure not gonna stop anyone from taking pics. As anyone from last year can attest, I was out there ALL DAY snapping shots.

With 50 people out there I didn't get as many of some than of others but I tried to get everyone. And NO I can't work miracles unless you bribe me to spend a lot of time in Photoshop.

It will always be your choice to purchase pics or not. I'm not being paid out of your track money, so if the pictures suck I won't get paid.

Anyway, if you want me to make your knee look closer to the ground, you're going have to at least stick it out!

Financially I'm just trying to justify bringing my stuff and the several hours it takes to shoot, process, sort, etc. If measured by the hour, the pay is poor.

Dave got some pretty good pics last year. I would only expect the same this year. By all means, bring your cameras. Get the shots. Dave cant be everywhere even though hes got some good equipment. I'm sure I'll be getting a few pics here and there.

I couldn't believe that one myself but after a couple of laps hearing a scraping noise when Ken went by I thought I would try to catch it.

I'd pay extra to see that happen.

I can't make track days because I have to coordinate work schedule, but if I make it out, on track days, I'll drag all my camera equipment, video and still, digital and 35mm and shoot all I can.
