*** Really looking forward to watch James Race in the 2013 British Superbike Championship with SMR Racing, Shaun Muir and being back with his superb crew chief Mick Shanley. James will be aboard the Milwaukee Yamaha competing for the 2013 championship, he will be a real popular addition to the grid. Go James!***
ME: “Of course that would be no problem at all when do you need them for James?”
Him: ” Can I come round in about ten minutes?”
ME: “Haha – OK”
So, in ten minutes I need to take images of a MotoGP rider, in his own merchandise, I needed a plan. For starters is was lashing down, proper Lake District liquid sunshine…………………so with a bit of thought, location sorted, ready for action.
James’ wife Sarah would model the female kit and James would model his own male merchandise, we had a blast, one of the quickest shoots I have ever done, arranged in ten minutes, full photo – shoot done and dusted in 20 minutes and up-loaded that afternoon. Freddie got a Tex cuddle from Sarah as well – he likes cuddles!
Fast forward a couple of weeks and a society I am a member of the International Professional Photographers Network, has a monthly image competition, I quickly met the deadline with an image of Sarah (I figured James has enough airtime)…………….and booooooom, a Silver award for Mr Wood, quite chuffed really!
Anyway, it would be great if you could have a look at some of James’ tees, maybe even buy one, keep an eye on the CRT class of MotoGP and you will see the beautiful PBM liveried machine – a Cumbrian team, with a Cumbrian rider on the world stage – superb.
Oh, before I go – there are a couple more on my Facebook page, feel free to take a look 🙂
