Macau Grand Prix is well known for its tight turns, long straights and yellow and black steel barriers that have claimed many teams and drivers championship hopes. The City of Macau comes alive for a four day action packed motorsport festival.
2016 was as exciting as ever, working with Craft Bamboo and VLT, the teams major sponsor. Craft Bamboo who compete in the GT Asia series which is the regions leading GT championship featuring the best production based supercars such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley.
Over the four days we were hired as the teams official photographers capturing everything from pit lane, garage preparations, VIP's, and race day action on the track.
Here's a little insight into what went on.
The 2016 event was definitely more challenging to photograph due to tighter securities on vantage points. Nevertheless, this is one of the most exciting corners whereby the cars lift a wheel off the ground due to the angle of the turn, this makes for an exciting dynamic image.
Motorsport events are long days and nights. The excitement and exhilaration you get from working with and around professional motorsport teams is second to none. It was a pleasure to work with Craft Bamboo and VLT, we look forward to more exciting projects down the road.
