A few shots here for all you bike fans. As some of you will know, i am a BIG bike fanatic. I have been since i was 7 years old when Santa Claus delivered a sparkly new Red Montesa Trials bike! 🙂
Since then i have been hooked, so combining my other love of Photography is just a dream for me. This coupled with sunshine and the odd eye candy, what more can you ask for! 😉
This is the first round of the British Superbikes race series I have been able to get to this year, but i wasn’t too worried as all the other races were in horrible cold wet weather … Snetterton proved yet again to be a cooking pot!
Enjoy the images and share share share …. 😉
This is still one of my favourite shots i have taken during the British Superbikes of 2011. Unlike a lot of the other photographers there, i try to get good behind the scenes shots of the riders…. this for me shows the clear focus and intensity of the riders. John was and is a very dedicated rider. Enjoy!

Staying with this weeks biking theme, i thought i would put this pic of the day up for my friend Leanne, who has just got the photography bug!! This was shot using a Nikon 80-200mm lens, at F2.8 and 1/350th sec at ISO200. Quite a dull day but still managed to get a fast shutter speed owing to the wide aperture. Hope this helps Leanne 🙂
Enjoy… and lets hope we see a #33 plate doing WSBK next year as well!! (Go Tommy!)
As a lot of you already know, i am and always have been a bit of a bike nut!! 😉 Yesterday was the Final round of the 2011 British Superbike Series at Brands Hatch. I have been lucky enough this year to have a full media pass, so have been trackside, pit lane, on the grid and anywhere else i could poke my head in to get a shot and photograph this amazing race series!
Its one thing loving Bikes, but when you also love photography, then this is just the dream gig!! Rubbing shoulders with my heroes has been the most awesome experience… and one that i hope will continue for many years to come!
Massive congratulations to Tommy Hill for a 110% deserved 2nd race win and overall championship. Poor old Hopper fought like an absolute demon and there was half a wheel length in it at the end to decide the champ! Both absolute Gods on two wheels!
The good people at the Mirror.co.uk have kindly enlisted me again this year to attend the British Superbike rounds and snap the action and the events as their roving Snapper! The opening round proved to be an absolute cracker! Weather in the 80’s, the course record going to Mr Shaky Byrne and only 10th’s of seconds separating the top of the field!! Check out my images here or on the mirror site … and do stop me if you are attending one of the rounds and see me…. We will be selecting people from each round to be entered into the ‘Wall of Fame’ so be original and get your mug in the Mirror!! Hope to snap you soon!! 🙂 don’t forget to join our Facebook fanpage also and tag yourself
