It has been sometime since I last updated my public view able work or posted to this Blog. The main reason for this is that I am taking a prolonged sabbatical from motorsport photography to concentrate on other work and projects. One of the reasons I have chosen to take this sabbatical form UK motorsport is because it is just no longer financially viable. The reason for this is because there are just too many photographers out there who are prepared to just give their work away for free or in exchange for a letter to enable them to apply for a media accreditation.
I don’t want to sound bitter about this, because frankly it’s just not worth it. I have taken this as an opportunity to push my photography into new areas and I can now say with honesty, I am now enjoying my work. There is also the additional bonus, that, I now and have more weekends’ free to concentrate on personal projects some of which will be published here. The decision to take a prolonged sabbatical does not mean that I have totally give up on motorsport photography, I have not. I hope to be seen again working at race meeting but this will be very selected UK meetings and some international meetings which will be mainly overseas, and I expect once again to be working with some of my old and well established clients.
