As the 2006 Ducati Sporting Club 2-day trackday at Cadwell Park is drawing closer, I wanted to take the opportunity to provide people with some clarification as to how I plan to provide photography services during the event.
As I am working this event on my own, there will be some differences to previous years so I felt it best to let people know in advance how things will work.
Sadly, it will be not be possible for me to supply images on the day/s. The logistics involved in taking photographs from every session means I cannot also be in the paddock sorting the images into the respective groups and then showing them to potential clients and selling them. This is the main difference to previous years where the photographer had a team of people helping him take photographs and then market them on the day, with these two activities often occurring as the same time.
My plan is to cover each and every session, attempting to capture each rider within the groups. I will take images from as many locations around the circuit as possible including the paddock. My plan is to use the first session for each group on each day to capture paddock ‘atmospheric’ shots. The reason for this is that most people will be using those early sessions to get used to the track layout more than they will be concentrating on looking good for the camera!!!!! It also means you hopefully get shots of you with your helmets off chatting to mates and preparing your bikes etc….an equally important and memorable part of the proceedings. As mentioned, I will try and capture every rider, but this can sometimes be impossible if you are in the middle of a tight group each time you pass me.
I will sort all of the track based images into the groupings (i.e. fast, inter, novice). The images will be displayed in a pre-designated area on the Cope Images website. This area will be found at www.copeimages.com/cadwelldsc.htm
I envisage that the images will start to emerge on the Cope Images website by close of play on Wednesday 23rd August.
From here you will be able to view low-res samples of the images. Images can be ordered as Jpegs on CD (per rider) or as individual prints. There will be an order form provided on the entrance page to the galleries which can be downloaded prior to image viewing. CD’s will be priced at £30 each. I will aim to provide a minimum of 15 images on the CD. If I don’t get this minimum quantity of images of a particular rider I will reduce the price accordingly for riders who still want Jpegs on CD. Prints can be provided in varying sizes up to A3 (420mm x 297mm). Some basic price/size options will be shown on the order form but as the prints are sourced from a professional photography lab, various options are available and prices can be supplied upon request. All prints are in a ‘glossy’ format and are supplied unmounted and will be despatched in cardboard back envelopes.
I hope that this clarifies things for people interested in photographs.
If you have any queries at all, please contact me.
Kind regards, Guy
