With his talent and vision for the perfect shot, Jamey Price has marked himself out as one of the leading photographers in the competitive sports car and motor racing circuits. Mobil 1 The Grid catches up with the American on how he approaches day-to-night events. During the day, Price plays with the dramatic contrast between bright and dark, and also lets the colours of the cars pop against the background. At night, it’s a different experience playing with light, glow and sparks.
Price pans at slow shutter speeds to show that a car is moving. It’s about capturing the heat of the moment. This extends to extends to the pit lane stops and driver changes – everyone has a job to do and this is what makes it so exciting. He is always prepared with wide 14mm to telephoto 500mm lenses and a raincoat for the changing weather conditions.
