The Le Mans 24 hours is one of the highlights of our year. We drive a van across the channel packed with camera equipment and mopeds (the best way to get around the circuit) and set up camp four days before the race even begins, to shoot loads of build up material. We use Sony FS7s as our workhorses both trackside and in the pit lane, as well as a Sony A7S on a DJI Ronin for selected pit stops.
To be squeezed into the Porsche team garage and then shoot them winning on the last lap was a euphoric experience we’ll never forget.
The only way to get through is simply stay awake for 24 hours, but the time you are awake is more like 36 hours if we are lucky enough to get invited to the team after party. Smelling bad from being in fireproof suits longer than the drivers in race themselves, the beer never tastes so good as when we export the final edited film on Sunday evening.
