Wex Walkabouts

Wex Walkabout: Motorsport Photography at Snetterton Circuit

  • Days: 1

Wex Walkabout: Motorsport Photography at Snetterton Circuit
Monday 26th March, 9am-12pm OR 2pm-5pm.
Meeting at: Outside Tyrrells Restaurant, Snetterton Circuit, Norwich. NR16 2QX.
Tickets £15pp.

Join us as we chase down the perfect high-speed shot at the Snetterton Circuit. Our very own Wex Events leader Amanda Leeming will share her expertise, showing you the best spots to take pictures from and the sure-fast techniques that portray that need for speed every time, without being trackside. Amanda will also be able to answer any questions you have throughout the event.

Key Skills Amanda will be going over include:

  • Improving the correct use of Auto-Focus
  • Manual shooting
  • Improving panning skills to get sharp, high quality photos.

You will need:

  • Your DSLR/CSC camera
  • A monopod
  • A telephoto lens (we recommend 200mm and above)
  • Your ticket!

The Walkabout will take around 3 hours, so don't forget to dress accordingly for any potential rainy March weather. There is a café on site but as we'll be out near the track for a significant part of the Walkabout, it may be worth bringing a soft drink or flask of something warm with you. There is also free parking available. Please arrive 10 minutes before your selected Walkabout slot to ensure a prompt start!

We look forward to seeing you there.

 

What is a Walkabout?

Walkabouts offer you the opportunity to get out and about with your camera, meet up with your local photographic community and learn a few new skills whilst you’re at it. Every month, the Wex team will be at a new venue with a different lead photographer, focusing on a different subject with a unique set of challenges. Walkabouts are all about enjoying and developing your photographic hobby in a relaxed, informal environment.

Unlike our photography workshops, Wex Walkabouts are completely informal, have no minimum group size and are not dependent on your ability or gear – wherever possible, we will bring along a range of kit you can borrow. All you need is your DSLR or compact system camera and some clothing suitable for the great outdoors. There are no specific steps or learning outcomes; the walkabouts will give you the challenge of a new environment and a new subject, all supported by an experienced pro photographer.

Regardless of your skill level or kit, Wex Walkabouts are for you – whether you want to try something new or just meet other likeminded enthusiasts!

In 2018 a minimum of £5 from every ticket will be donated to our chosen charity of the year. This ticket price also covers any entry fees for the sites we visit as part of our Walkabouts. If you’d like to know more about this or our chosen charity, please don’t hesitate to email events@wex.co.uk
