    After a huge photo slump, I hit the road for a few days to follow this event, here are a couple of the grabs I got:

    Had a huge amount of fun snapping these, but always open to comments and critique. I'm wanting to do more motorsport stuff, so tips are welcome.

    Rest are here:

    I would love to go shoot an event like this. Great job on snapping the photos. I especially like the one of the WRX.

    I'm so jealous. I used to race in time trials and haven't had the funds to do it for the past few years. Competing in a targa rally would be amazing.

    Cheers for the replies guys, got a bit caught up so didn't have a chance to swing by.

    Thanks, the Targa is my favourite event of the year. Next year the WRC has some NZ stages, so I can't wait to cash in on some time off and swing by those!

    Yeah, I'd love to sometime. I have a project in the garage I'm hoping to get into some hill climbs, but yeah - money slows it down a lot.

    Haha I couldn't see it comming from where I was, I just heard a lot of excitement then saw that!

    That guy was going nutso the whole time!

    The first one is my fav.
    You can do so much with that.

    Try making black and white and doing a dramatic dodge and burn, maybe a little vignette.

    And a couple of others I didn't get around to:

    ^ This is the BMW I have shots of crashing after they got it back on the road to finish the event. Good effort, and check out the 'camber' on that rear left wheel.

    I like the airbore GT3 as well. All great shots though. Motorsports photography is where my heart is so I like them all!
