The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the one event I’ve been hoping to attend since I started photographing cars, and I was lucky enough to finally go this year. The bad news was the I got the invite just a few weeks before the race, well after the last day to apply for photo credentials. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get trackside, but fortunately I managed to talk my way into a photo vest for a few hours at sunset and and sunrise. Having never been to the track there was a huge learning curve – even finding where to get into the photos areas was a huge challenge – but by the end I was satisfied with my photos for being a “newbie”. I hope that I’ll be able to attend again, especially with a photo credential for the entire race.
