I'm going on Sunday and looking forward to a packed day during which I'm bound to miss out on something; but it won't be this:

What's on & when, from the Goodwood website

Hopefully the view from the Audi stand will be good

Is anyone else going?

I'll do what I can, but life at home is busy (to say the least) so it may take a while to sort through the photos I do take.

The following link is probably the only place I'll upload to though; it has some photos from both the Festival and the Revival on it.

https://www.flickr.c...os/22652237@N05

I do need to update it though as the newest photos are from 2013.

Seriously though dude, if you are not already you should be earning a living from photos of that quality. Pro, just pro!

Thanks for the compliment!

My photography is just a hobby. If I tried to turn pro then I think I would loose something in the enjoyment of it.

 

I had a look at your photos, getting to Grands Prix in the 80's must have been quite something! I hope they bring back good memories when you see them.

I will make sure that this, upcoming Test Drive Weekend contains all of the cars from our portfolio that are related to the FoS. Feel free to suggest, of course  ;)

In that sense, I have already had some photos published via a private arrangement which is unlikely to be repeated anytime soon. I think you'll agree, that's hardly professional (and it wasn't in keeping with the point I wanted to make) which is why I didn't mention it until I thought of asking the following question:

If you know anyone who needs some photos for a book or publicity then perhaps you could tell them about me?

That live feed was fantastic!  Too many cars to count and all beautiful looking and sounding.  Great carporn.  Why yes I will watch tomorrow and Sunday.  That looked like quite the soiree, wish I was there.  Heck I wish we were all there.

I've inserted three photos from Goodwood across three posts

The Ferrari is about as good as think I could have managed, I'm very pleased with that one

The one of John McGuinness is bad, nothing is in focus and it's one I wanted to get as well! Typical for me and the reason I'm not a pro! :)

The Plymouth Superbird is OK, but I think it coud have been better.

I will eventually add a few to the Flickr page, but probably not before Goodwood 2015 is a distant memory. I just don't have the time :mellow:

If anyone wants to take a look I recently 23 photos from the Goodwood 73rd Members Meeting and recent Festival of Speed to my Flickr page

https://www.flickr.c...os/22652237@N05

Thanks for the "likes" and comments already posted.

 

 

I think this game would greatly benefit from including a few of the cars posted there, so look out for a request or two in the near future! :)
