The Monticello Motor Club is an exclusive private club for Members Only – so exclusive that no member’s names are mentioned. This workshop will be for a small elite group of intermediate to advanced photographers only. We will have access to three corners, a hairpin turn and a straightaway to make photographs. On this very special & exciting action packed workshop you will be photographing cars at high speeds. Some of the things we will cover are how tracking works on your cameras, what are the best shutter speeds to use to capture motion as the cars come toward and as they go past you, as well as learning how to make great plans to capture the fluid motion. You will also learn how to work with monopods, which when shooting action with long lenses, which really come in handy.
Note – We will not have access to the private club or clubhouse and lunch will not be included in the cost of the workshop.
Both Joe DiMaggio and JoAnne Kalish are internationally known photographers who have illustrious careers photographing automobile racing from Formula One to Dirt Cars and back again. DiMaggio’s photo was recently selected as the third greatest photo in the last 100 years of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway by Sports Illustrated. Kalish was the only photographer to get the famous jump shot (or shunt) at the Long Beach Grand Prix which has been reproduced all over the world. It is also used as a double page spread in driver Mario Andretti’s coffee table book. During this workshop, we will not only cover how to photograph race cars but we will also help you hone your skills in other sports action photography as well.
Please note this workshop is for intermediate and advanced photographers and is at your own risk. Automobile racing can be dangerous and you need to be vigilant and aware of what’s happening around you at all times.
Recommended equipment; one or two cameras and lenses to bring would be the 70-200mm, 70-300mm,100-400mm, and a variable wide-angle zooms. If you have long glass, this would be a good time to bring it. The cost of the workshop is $300.
