Formula D Seattle 2011

Formula D Seattle is undoubtedly my most favorite event to photograph every year. In previous years, I shot the event for Subiesport Magazine and Driving Sports, however this was the first year I shot the event for Due to scheduling issues with another event I was going to on Saturday, I was only able to shoot Friday’s practice and qualifying sessions, but I was also able to get Kyle “KP” Pope to fly up from Arizona and shoot in my stead for the main Saturday races. We had an awesome weekend of shooting, with Friday trying to outdo the other with panning shots. At best, I was able to get a handful of decent 1/25 sec pans, however 1/30 sec pans like the photo above and 1/50 sec pans proved to be much more consistent for me. I shot exclusively with my Nikon D700 with my new Nikkor 70-200 ƒ2.8G VR2 lens and Nikkor 35mm ƒ1.4G lens that I rented from Either way, it was a great time and I feel very confident that between KP and I, we have the best Formula D Seattle coverage out of any of the other publications out there. Here are links to both our track and pit coverage for Day 1:
