Just posted on YouTube: an interview with Greek photographer, George Niaounakis. Years ago George emailed me with a question about how to spend money on photography equipment, and not long ago joined me on Patreon. That led to a Skype call in which I told George everything I knew about Valencia in preparation for his first opportunity to photograph MotoGP with a credential. This interview shows many photographs from the 2017 MotoGP season finale as George talks about his experience.

One of the most frequent types of email I receive is that asking about breaking into MotoGP as a photographer. If you are interested in finding yourself in George’s shoes one day, I think you’ll find his comments informative. Listening to his experiences just might help you prepare for your own first credential, whether it’s in MotoGP, WSBK, or some other racing series.

Below, some images from the weekend and following test. All images were made by George or his partner at Apex Photography, Katia Poupaki.
