" I'm really excited to be working with Clifton Cameras on this project and can't wait to head out to Dubai in January. Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or have just found your passion in creating images I know you will love this workshop.
There's definitely an adrenalin reward from shooting motorsport. The noise, crowds and petroleum-smell are a sensory fix alone, being able to get close to the action and capture it is simply incredible.
With access to areas usually reserved for press and media, I'm looking forward to working with you to help you get the most out of your pictures. The agenda I've planned is pretty packed so I can't guarantee a holiday, but if you’re after a unique experience and want to improve your sports photography, then I know you will have a great time!"
