I’ve been enjoying working with the leading F1 photographer Darren Heath this season.

He has a fantastic eye and always gets an original view on a Grand Prix weekend. We are experimenting with ways we can work together on content and this is a Flickr slideshow with my captions.

For maximum impact, expand it to full screen and click on “Show info” to get the captions. (You will need the latest Flash plug-in installed and your browsers might prefer to go directly to the JAF1 Flickr pages)

Great pictures. Ironic given many thousands of pounds worth of camera equipment that some of the blurry shots are the most atmospheric but could be shot with a much cheaper camera probably? Then we wouldn’t get the track access would we? The Santander shot shows how enormous the run-off area is now hence the banzai driving. By the way I couldn’t get any captions in Internet Explorer but could blow the shots up.

The Massa crash helmet shot is fantastic

Get back in print soon James – not much for the last few days – your (ever expanding – what the hell is twitter all about?) web site is a bit like a drug!


Great, can see them new.

Very good stuff!


Well James , as a septuagenarian Silver Surfer, who knows very little about IT. I would like to report that I had no trouble getting full screen or your comments, and enjoyed it as you intended !, thanks for starting my day on a good note.


Thats some beautiful photography! Darren Heath as always 🙂


Great photo essay James and another amazing collections from Darren, can’t wait for Monaco!


As a fellow photographer, I am not only impressed with the photography, which is pretty dam good, but the editing is truly fantastic.

I know how many frames I would shoot at an event such as a Grand Prix weekend, and I think the hardest part would be to edit it all down to only the best images.


Try opening the link in a new tab/new window.


Awesome pictures but it would be great to get them in high-res so we would be able to use them as wallpapers 😉

looking forward to reading your posts from Monaco!!


that photography is nuts. the guy is master-class.


Try the direct link:

Yep having problems here too, can’t see the full screen pictures (Safari and Mac user here)..


Fails on Safari 4 Beta on Windows Vista as well. I see an empty white space where the slideshow should obviously be, but nothing ever loads.


James – I’ve been a fan of Darrens photography for a while. His website only sells certain prints for quite a large sum of money. I’m interested in large prints that are great pieces of art to display in my house.

Can you do a deal with him to sell some of his prints on your site? I can help set-up if required!?!



Nice work from both of you.
On the last photo, the group shot of Brawn GP, Nick Fry can be seen to one side.
What do we know of his position in the team now, and how come he wasnt more of a player in the takeover? It seems like he was pushed to the side after being reported as “a surprise front-runner to take over the stricken Formula One team”. Its all been about Ross and he seems to have fallen by the wayside.


I really wish I had the talent to take stunning pictures like that, they are beautiful. As someone else mentioned those the slideslow is far to quick to appreciate the photo and read the caption.


The massa picture with his helmet is the best, nice composition.


Very nice!


Hi James, My suggestion for this project would be that you create an audio summary of the race weekend to play with the pictures, not trying to connect it to the pictures.


On the 30inch Mac screen the Massa off the line picture looks like a piece of modern art – fantastic shot.

The start line looks wide.

Where exactly is the timing beam – start, middle or end of the start line?


Nice pic set, only one gripe. The slideshow is too quick to appreciate the picture and read your comments comfortably, it all gets a bit rushed. Slow it down please.


Some amazing photography there. Love the shot of the run down to the first corner, there is a real sense of speed in there.


Fails on Chrome 2 with Flash 10.

Won’t go full-screen, and there’s no option to show the captions.
