2018 Summernats 31

Over the weekend I was sent out to photograph Summernats 31. Always great fun being at this event, photographing all the excitement of people and their cars. Here are a few of my fav images.

Over all I had an amazing year at the Summernats, been attending for 18 years and it gets better every year. Was also amazing photographing for the Sunday Telegraph - these are all MY photos printed in the newspaper. Hope everyone had a great time and enjoy all my images.

Summernats 30, 2017 - Sunday

Summernats 30

Finals day, My Favourite day. All year long spending hours and days preparing the Go to Whoa and Burnout cars comes down to one day. What a year to win a title Summernats 30. The Drivers left it all on the line for ultimate glory and it shows in the images. 

Winner of Burnout Master was Killa-B (Yellow Camero)

I can't wait until Summernats 31 - 364 Days to go!!

Summernats 30, 2017 - Saturday

2 Days Till Summernats 30

2 Days till Summernats 30

2 days to go! Well two days for me. Summernats has already started but the best days are when the weekend kicks in. It's almost here the party has almost begun! This brings up image 9 in KCP's 10 image special in the lead up to the big Summernats 30. 

Image 9 is one of my favourite of the 18 years I have attended Summernats car festival. 18 years??? Yes 18 but your 28?? Yep been attending this festival since I was in year 5. Long time! Seen it all and photographed it all. Had many great memories. I hope this year is when I take my best images. Why this image is one of my favourites well. When I started photography I learnt this technique "panning" simple technique but when done right you get this image. 

Stay tuned still many more days of fantastic images to come!!!

3 days Till Summernats 30

3 Days till Summernats 30

3 days to go! What's that smell?? I think it's rubber & car fumes!!! That means Summernats is close! That must mean it's the 8th image in KCP's 10 image special in the lead up to the big Summernats 30. 

Image 8 features the same car that was in image 3. Why have two images of the same car? Well this image shows why. It's always exciting photographing "fear" and this is why! FIRE!!!

4 days to go! The excitement is building! I can hear the engines rumbling. Well we continue our count to Saturdays Summernats 30 bringing up image 7 in KCP's 10 image special in the lead up to the big Summernats 30. 

Image 7 its very close to image 5 but on this image the driver needs no help with his street burnout and has a few more spectators cheering him on. With the license plate "come on" and the trusty go pro on the pole he obviously knows what he is doing.

Stay tuned still many more days of fantastic images to come!!!
