F1 photographer Martin Trenkler: revisited
Two wild weeks into the 2009 Formula 1 season and I anxiously await Martin Trenkler's (link) updates to his website. Not sure if it's his travel schedule or what, but none of the 2009 images have appeared on his site yet. I've been a fan of his for a while and have been saving up for a triptych of images that I have contacted him about purchasing as well. He even has a book for sale, but the link on his site is dead, so I'm off to google for it.
If you like Formula 1, his site is a must see. If you like great composition, angles, colors, and playful techniques in photography, then his site is a must see. If you just like looking at girls holding grid signs before races, then his site is also a must see. The playfulness and overall chilled mood of the images, to me, seems to reflect how happy this dude is photographing F1 all over the world.
p.s. I'm not hopping from mcclaren to brawn, but being Mercedes powered I think it's ok to root them on a little. Plus, Barrichello and Button are such good guys, they deserve it.
