Another year begins. Like the competitors there is  a pre season equipment check.

A updating of equipment. Licence and Accreditation applications sent and received

This year Cams in it's infinite wisdom and efficiency has given me a new ID number and new 

vest number, like I am a new person also at a lesser ranking. BUT....... and this is a big but

I am too afraid to bring this to their attention. Anything could happen. I may end up a 

open wheeler pilot or pit control official neither of which is a bad thing but it is not a position

from which a photographer does their best work. With CAMS near enough is sometimes as good as

it gets. And this year if more people would buy more photos instead of giving their friends the web

address so that they can look at the photos for free I would appreciate it.

Anyway on wards to a better season. Safety all the way.

And the Show goes on... https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2015/5/and-the-show-goes-on Another great weekend of great Tarmac Rallying has been had at the Quit Targa South West. With Newcomers and experienced  Rally Nuts the crowds were entertained. All the competitors were flat out at all times.  Though some interpretations of flat out were different and slower to others. If I could edit photos as fast as I take them things would be a lot easier.

Dark Weekend https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2015/5/dark-weekend The weekend that has just passed is one of the saddest in West Australian Motorsport. Firstly my heart felt condolence to the family and friends of the unfortunate family. To clarify my following words I was there at the scene. I just want to convey my observations and maybe deal with the situation in my own head. Proud to say that those who were there acted in a professional manner at all times and performed their duties such as medical, comforting, controlling people and vehicle movements as needed, as would be expected. I know that no words or gestures will ease the suffering of those concerned but may they get  comfort from all the concerned wishes. I know that from now on I will give more attention to were I stand, complacency has gone, but I will still be out there. The Sport needs our support, be that there will be more consideration towards safety. There will always be a little boys face in the back of my mind to remind me.

Forest Rally https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2015/3/forest-rally The photos are coming. I'm back from my weekend of eating dust and I'm exhausted. The weekend went so fast but editing photos  seems to take longer than the weekend. I'll get there.

The Big Sleep is over https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2015/3/the-big-sleep-is-over After a summer hibernation the "Grumpy Photographer" is back. I'm awake or it is bloody good dream. This up coming year appears to have many opportunities to get out there and capture some great moments of Auto Action starting with track racing then gravel rally for starters. The aim this year is to be there and record it as it happens. So why not come along for the ride. It will not be pretty at times, then my legs never were, but the end result will make it worth it. This is what I keep telling myself, I believe in pixies too. Not fairies they are too dainty. But Pixies are tough. See you at the track sometime this is a flash free zone unless it is dark.

The year that was...... https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/11/the-year-that-was Well I have survived a a whole year of  Home Grown Motorsports. Every round of the State Rally Championship, most of Barbagallo's Events and of course Targa West, Targa South West, Forest Rally. Next year I'm travelling overseas again mainly Japan and Europe so my photographic coverage of local events many suffer a little. But the travel photos will be great. If you see my mojo please return it co's at the moment I'm running on empty and a steady supply of filtered coffee, oh coffee the elixir of life.

Sleep is Nice https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/8/sleep-is-nice Just complete the Quit Targa West 2014 in more than one way. A two day event gives you lots of photos to edit and

upload. But a four day just exhausts you mentally and physically. My editing system sucks so it is so blahh.

Each night after standing and walking and driving your head says show me me the pillow, your eyes scream as

you turn on the computer screen, and upload another card of photos. Staring at the screen at shots that all look the same trying to find the best.  But that is behind me now or is it. Notice as you get tired your creativity goes out the window. On the last day I was just pointing and shooting. If I looked like some of my associates red eyes, red  faces, dragging feet. I would not have made a pretty sight. But then I can not wait till next year. That is what photography is about. All that glamour..............Not.

Boddington Rally https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/6/boddington-rally The Newmont Boddington Gold  Rally has come and gone and a great time was had by all.

It was great to see the familiar faces on the side line and some new ones. The weather at

times did not help my photo taking but I managed to get some shots, the conditions even

made some different images to normal. Tim Allott was my companion for some of the time.

That hill to the jumps was steep by gave some great shots. But I seemed to be in the wrong

place at each exciting happening. Brian White was in the crowd on Sunday quietly doing what

Brian does. All the crews performed well and organisation seemed to be organised so everything

ran smoothly. Will be there again next year maybe a little wiser but definitely keener.

Quit Targa Southwest https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/5/quit-targa-southwest This weekend I'm off to the Targa Southwest Rally. Its small but good rally to attend.

And for a change I have a nice warm bed and a fire makes a good change from the swag

Last week end was the V8's at Barbagello Raceway good but a horror to get a good position to take

photos. Got a few keepers they will be uploaded in the next few weeks.

Trade Hire Donnely Rally https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/5/trade-hire-donnely-rally Early tomorrow morning I head down south for the Trade Hire Donnelly Rally. It has been raining for the last few days so

it will make the conditions interesting and photo ops plenty. My son Stephen is coming with me he is a photographer too.

Sunday Afternoon the first shots should be on my site. Hopefully we will get some buyers this round. I have tons of lookers but

very few buyers. I know money is tight in some classes but my car doesn't run on air and I can not pay bills with good will.

But it is the sport, the adventure, the thrill that is the real draw card.

Return from Quit Forrest Rally https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/4/return-from-quit-targa-rally I have survived a weekend away at the Quit Forest Rally. The fun began when I

discovered that the free camp site that I had selected was in the middle of nowhere

and there was no one else around for miles, then it began to rain. I soon decided that closer

to civilisation I was the better. Ended up sleeping in my car at the first stage for Saturday.

Then the action started got some reasonable photos. Some of the cars I was not to see again

for the rest of the weekend. ( I want my money back). Meet some interstate photographers

who really knew there stuff. In all it was a great weekend. which I would do again but this time

make sure I have reasonable accommodation. Nannup is a quiet country town which closes at

10 pm. My little chariot got to wear a new badge for the weekend. Photo included.

Quit Forest Rally https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/4/quit-forest-rally Tomorrow morning early I throw throw my swag in the car and head down to Nannup for the Quit

Forest Rally. A bit of getting back to nature sleeping and photographing in the bush. Hopefully the

conditions and rallying justify the effort. The weather looks fine so that is one thing  I will not have

to worry about. So here's to good photos and a good time.

Oh Daniel what have they done. https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/3/oh-daniel-what-have-they-done Was there anything else that could have gone wrong for Daniel Ricciardo today? Hopefully that is it for this year.

He really looks like he is going to make life very competitive for his team mate.

I didn't go to Sepang this year.But from where I usually watch the race I would have been able to see it all unfold.

How could  such a professional team get it all so wrong. 

The Quit Forest Rally is coming up soon, hoping to get down for a few days of action packed photos.

It has been raining, hopefully this will add to the action.

Getting accreditation is so hard as there is very little communication. I have to drive all the way to

Bunbury to apply. As comuputer contact is useless.

A long night https://www.tizobeimages.com/blog/2014/3/a-long-night After several long nights I finally have the photos of the March 22 Night Masters ready to display. I was all day looking through the view finder oh how my eyes  hurt. The different light situation during the day made setting camera difficult, especially at night working with no flash. Got some good garage shots even tried to be a bit arty. Simon Phillips share camera settings with me all day. Some of our photos are nearly the same.
