The man at the cen­tre of at­ten­tion

F1 Racing (UK) - - CHAMPION’S PARADE -

Ev­ery year the new world champion poses with his team, then af­ter­wards there is a scrum where pho­tog­ra­phers and TV crews sur­round them to cap­ture more in­ti­mate mo­ments of joy.

For those main team cel­e­bra­tions I was shoot­ing on a longer lens and fo­cus­ing on Hamilton, but then I had to swap cam­eras, so I came to the scrum late and be­hind a num­ber of other pho­tog­ra­phers.

I used a wide lens to show the ex­tent of the group sur­round­ing him, but that also en­abled me to cap­ture the crowd in the grand­stand above the pits.

As the skies are dark­en­ing, Hamilton stands out in this one frame as he’s lit by an­other cam­era’s flash.
