British Superbikes – Thruxton

Posted in Motorsport at 8:59 pm by Warren Williams

After much delay with recent travelling and having my laptop serviced, I’m able to start processing photos from the past couple of months.

I was kindly given a media pass through my friend Rich (www.swaffs.co.uk), to cover the action of the fast Thruxton circuit. There were many support series in attendance, and a few spills on the best corner to shoot at – the final chicane.

Sunrise over the O2

Posted in Landscape, Nature, Travel at 5:00 am by Warren Williams

With London having such a high latitude, sunrise/sunset in the middle of the year is rather extreme. This mornings sunrise was up before 5am, which meant leaving home at 330am to venture towards the Isle of Dogs near Canary Wharf for a view over the Thames and O2 Dome. What a beauty of a day, she turned out to be…

At this point, I also created a sequence of shots that I pieced into a video:

Posted in Motorsport at 5:57 pm by Warren Williams

Thanks to a free guest pass from Neal, I attended Sundays’ racing action at Brands Hatch. Featuring some old F1 cars, as well as some other classics, a great hot day out as the temperature topped out at over 25°C.

Borough Food Market, Camden & Tower Bridge

Posted in Architecture, Landscape, People at 10:06 pm by Warren Williams

Hosted the photography meetup group meetup again, starting at the tasty Borough Food Market near London Bridge. From there, we ventured off to Tate Modern, and the pub on the Thames. Following this, we headed off to Camden Market, and finally watched the sunset from Tower Bridge. Another highlight of the walk, was meeting Pink Floyd album cover artist/photographers, Storm Thorgerson & Rupert Truman who produce some amazing work.

Wedding – Rob & Kat

Posted in People, Travel, Wedding at 9:30 pm by Warren Williams

Rob & Kat were married at the lovely Crondon Park – Golf & Country Club in Essex. My friend Rich (Swaffs.co.uk) was the main photographer, and chose me as his assistant. We both ended up shooting a large variety of shots, with Rich focusing on the formals, whilst I grabbed some candids from various angles. Rob & Kat were a load of fun, with their passion for motorcycles evident!

A1GP Final Round – Brands Hatch

Posted in Motorsport, People, Sport at 8:01 pm by Warren Williams

With the scheduled last round of Mexico being cancelled due to the current swine flu pandemic, Brands Hatch was brought up as the final round, with three teams still in the running for the title. However Ireland’s Adam Carroll had other feelings, by storming through to clinching both wins from pole position, and the title for Team Ireland.

Here’s some highlights from the weekend, with link through to the gallery of 150 shots, featuring A1GP action, grid girls and support races.
