On the Spot Photography Printing

Filed under: Bikes,Latest News,Phillip Island,Racing — admin @ 11:40 am

For close to 15 years now we have had photographic prints back at motorsport events for competitors to take home.

To do this we have had to get back to our photography lab in Cowes (Phillip Island) for printing then back to the track.

This obviously restricted the events where we could offer this happy new year quotes service, primarily running the photography service at Phillip Island. Weekend events at Sandown, Winton and Broadford were still possible but it involved driving back to Phillip Island, printing all night then driving back to the distant track straight away without sleep!

However with changes in technology it has recently become possible to put a mobile photography lab together and take our photography service on the road.

Check out the quick video below which gives a brief overview of the set-up.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and if there is any motorsport events that we need to be offering this service at..

Cheers,
Steve

Framed Photo Montages Take Home From Event

Filed under: Latest News,Phillip Island,Racing — admin @ 1:11 pm

Over the last year we have offered 24×36 inch photo montages at events.

To show as examples there is usually a couple of poster montages designed, printed, framed and hung on display for viewing (Sunday of event).

The montages are designed using photos from that event!  The driver / rider who happens to be on display usually can’t help but buy the framed montage of themselves to take home.

As with my standard photography service there is never any obligation for competitors to buy photos and having a framed montage poster on display is no exception!

You can see the 4 framed montage examples we had on display at Historic Sandown recently.  The framed montages serve as great examples for other competitors wanting to order one but are also a great piece of memorabilia to be taken home on the weekend!

 

We will continue to have example poster montages designed, framed and available to take home from weekend events.  If you would like to be on display at an upcoming event (remember no obligation to purchase) simply let me know CONTACT US.

Marco Simoncelli at Foto First Phillip Island

Filed under: Bikes,Phillip Island — admin @ 11:04 am

Although only really knowing ‘of’ Marco Simoncelli, it was a tremendously gut wrenching experience watching his last race.
Only just a few days before his last race I was able to catch up with him at our shop in Cowes.
