Oh hai,

I'm random guy from Czech Republic (Europe) who does nothing else but shoot rally. My mate 'Kip' has told me few weeks ago to come here and share my rally photos as not many of you shoot it.

I've taken a quick look through the Photography section of the forum and it seems to be full of very talented people and lot's of information - seems like I have another forum to visit on a regural basis.

I don't really have any sort of 'best of' collection that I could specifically share here, so I'm gonna just pick some random photos from this season and direct you to my website for a lot more: WWW.RALLYPHOTOS.CZ

Okay, so that is about me & rally. I do also very rarely shoot some other things, which I put on my photo dump @ http://don.vn.cz/

Wow, I'm really impressed!

Now, I'm no expert, but these might be some of the best rally photos I've ever seen! Looks like you have a really nice eye for composition, and your technical skills succeeds mine by far!

Good work!

6b. (maybe this one is my favourite of all time, because it reminds me of the 80s where the crazy spectators were lining the road and this rally in Poland was similar in that aspect)

And to tell you a bit more about myself: I'm 24 years old guy working in an advertising agency, unfortunately nothing to do with photographing (just design, prepress, print and other stuff).

I visit most of the Czech rallies and usually one World Rally Championship event every year, but all of that is just on my own, not doing this as a job or something - that would be my dream job, working as a rally photographer for one of the famous agencies (McKlein)

I'm pretty sure this is the best collection of rally photos anywhere, amazing work
mopho
Great work! I really like your style.
I used to make much of my living from shooting rally until I was nearly killed in spectacular fashion. It was a lot of fun though, do miss it (well not the rainy days)

Well you must not have seen many rally photos then, there are a lot of awesome shooters in the sport around the world. I wouldn't dare say anyone is the best as everyone brings their own style to the table and what appeals to one may not to another

Just A WE SO ME!!!

Truly great stuff! As a Peugeot owner I have to say I like 10b best. wink.gif But I also like #28 a lot, he looks really troubled.

Actually, rainy days are my most favourite, because you have usually guaranteed a lot of action in the photos - splashes, mud, puddles... And you don't have to worry about sun at all. I developed a hate against sun during the last few years - you find the perfect spot and then the sun comes out and totally ruins your plan. It makes everything too contrasty and the dynamic range is too small to capture all of it.

For sure it made for interesting photos, but I just hated getting soaked to the bone, messing up my car (when I didn't have to fly), clothes, etc with mud, even with a rain suit and I ruined a camera in a rain storm once, which was a really expensive repair
Daz
Incredible shots thumbs_up.gif

Very impressed with the long shots considering your using a 70-300mm Sigma which I found quite slow at focusing.

I agree with some of the others that it's your compositions that really set you apart from all the other rally shots I've seen. Really makes me want to go shoot a rally now smile.gif
Daz
Just seen the extra photo's you've added on the 2nd page and I absolutely love that first shot. Love how the towing arrow is pointing at the blast of ice and snow being broken up biggrin.gif.

I might have found me some new wallpapers biggrin.gif
don
well i was using the sigma 70-300 from 2006 to half of the 2008, since then its mostly the fixed Canon 200/2.8... so all of the photos i linked here are with the canon...

I've managed to kill my knee or something, so I can't really walk right now, however that didn't stop me from visiting a test session of the current Czech Rally Champion - Pavel Valousek.

Snow, ice, studded tyres, Fabia S2000 + great driving =


MORE IMAGES @ http://www.rallylife.cz/test-pavla-valousk...nner-rally-2011

EDIT: now the photos are at my website in higher resolution (1280px) @ http://rallyphotos.cz/photos/test_valda_bunc/

Ah that explains why they are miles sharper than my 70-300.

Awesome shots though.

I'll make the effort to go to the WRC rally when it's next here.

I made a selection of photos of current czech rally champion Pavel Valousek from the 2010 season.

Your rally photos have made my day! Thanks for sharing, really nice stuff. Every shot is something different and interesting.

The new season is here, it started last Sunday with an amatuer Rally Slalom event, where few of my mates competed. I personally didn't like the conditions for photographing at all - no snow, everything dull, no proper scenery (as it was on airfield)... so here's just few shots im not really happy about: http://rallyphotos.cz/photos/rally_monte_s...biskupice_2011/

Next weekend there's another amauter event in the forests, fingers crossed for some snow.

We had another rally for amateur rally drivers this weekend, couple of pics here: http://rallyphotos.cz/photos/ve_stope_valasske_zimy_2011/
