This year's weather, although not liked by many, is a real help in creating moments to capture. I personally love having clouds in my shots, it really helps create a good composition especially when you're pointing the camera up at an amazing sculpture in front of the house. It was then a matter of finding a good angle, something slightly different – and I found mine while crossing the footbridge to the other side of the track. A bit of sculpture, a bit of house, a bit of branding and a great sky. One shot in the bag, and on we go to the next location on my brief.
I wanted to capture some of the people you see around, many just walking through the crowds enjoying the day (although I didn't spot Nico Rosberg in his hoody and sunglasses or a tonne of other people for that matter). I did find a few goodies and so have included them in my selection.
For me, the stars of the show are always the modern racing cars – simply awesome to watch and listen too! This year I mostly listened to them as I was working on other shots at the time, and it is very hard to be in two places at the same time at Goodwood! However, I did manage to see some cars on track and I've included some of my favourite shots. I did miss the one car I wanted to see, the winner of the Le Man's 24 Hours, the Ford GT, a really amazing car – so fast and powerful and those lines are just gorgeous. Perhaps next year.
