Guest Shooter: Diego Mola
The latest PHOTO.GP Guest Shooter is Diego Mola, who writes:
I have been taking photographs since a young age and the first time I attended the Tourist Trophy in 2008, I fell in love with road racing. Bikes that fly past on a street circuit in the hands of a fantastic rider generate an indescribable feeling when you are only a few feet away.
Since my first visit I have been to the Tourist Trophy and North West 200 many more times and have also taken pictures last year at the Ulster Grand Prix, which I intend to return to again. I will attend the next North West 200 and have projects for other races in August.
I use Canon equipment, at the moment a 7D and various lenses from 8mm to 300mm.
Diego is our second Guest Shooter in a row to specialize in road racing (the previous being Stephen Mahon. Though this is a coincidence, perhaps it shows how compelling road racing is as a subject for motor sports photography. Personally I love images such as the one above of the Northwest 200, where the street landscape is part of the image.
