My name is Dave Adams, and I am (amongst other things) a freelance automotive and motorsport photographer. Whilst I do shoot a variety of motorsport genres, I love to shoot the GT cars from the 50's & 60's, so many of the photos on this site reflect that period of racing.
I provide photography services for drivers, teams and owners, from provision of digital images to full blown canvas prints. If you have a requirement for photographs, whether for personal use or corporate marketing, please get in touch.
Some of the photographs on here and on Flickr are available to buy on SmugMug
This website was written by myself and uses the Flickr API to retrieve the last 100 photographs uploaded. Therefore the content is refreshed periodically whenever new photographs are posted to Flickr.
This site has been developed to be clean and simple to use, with a more minimalistic look than previous incarnations. The philosophy for the design is one of 'Less is More'. Further examples of my work can be found by visiting Flickr (click any of the links next to the photos on the site that say 'View on Flickr' to be taken directly there) or simply click this link.
The Photography Kit
Currently I use the full frame Nikon D610 (Jessops) that replaced an aging Nikon D200. For lenses, I use a combination of the fantastic Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Lens that is a joy to use, a Nikon 24-85mm VR Lens for those times when 50mm is just too wide, and for panning shots I use an old (and discontinued) 80-200mm f/2.8 push/pull lens (that I would like to replace with a 70-200 f/2.8).
Aside from the camera body and lenses, I tend to carry a stack of memory cards ranging from 8GB to 32GB (the D610 has two card slots, I use the second slot in backup mode so every shot is duplicated) - this means that you need twice as many cards as normal. Currently I've switched from Sandisk to these Transcend 32GB SDHC cards, mainly to get the increased write speed required for panning where burst shooting is likely to be used.
Bag wise, I use the Lowepro SlingShot 302 AW, I'm now on my second Slingshot after my camera gear outgrew the space available in the previous smaller version. Can thoroughly recommend these bags, they're well designed, well put together, and have plenty of pockets for camera accessories. They even have a waterproof cover hidden away for those British summers we love.
I think this Nikkor 200-500mm (Jessops) will be on the shopping list next.
As of September 2015, I have setup a SmugMug account where you can purchase prints of my images. This may only be available for a limited time, so if you would like to get a print made, please do so sooner rather than later (I will only extend this if it proves to be cost effective).
