I’ve had the privilege to be on the track to photograph the first round of the Ligue du Centre Val de Loire karting championship sur le circuit de Sologne Karting on March 10th, 2019. The morning was quite wet, with a few mansoon style showers during the first 3 hours ! Hopefully the afternoon was much sunnier…
Always try something new was the title of one of my articles a year ago. I’m true to my words, it’s time for me to reshuffle things a bit!
I’ve always been very passionate about motorsport. Since I was a kid I’ve always watched all the races I could that were on TV. Now with internet it’s racing fest almost every week-end! So why not merging my “old” motorsport passion with my “new” photography love into one?
That’s what I will be doing in 2019. Being in Romania for 10+ years didn’t help as motorsports are quite marginal there. But here in France, it’s already something much more reachable. I’ve just become the official photographer for a local karting track. The first step to something, hopefully, big!
It doesn’t mean I’ve stopped shooting the streets and the city, far from that. On the contrary, with a fresher perspective, it can only help with creativity. Heck, I’ve even started shooting the streets in colors during my last trip to Bucharest! Much more to come later on…
