    Excellent images!! All of them… Even with the stepped noses!! Thanks to Jamie… he made F1 look beautiful again!!

    I’m nearly used to the noses already!

    Kudos to Jamie, really added something different to the usual pictures.

    I especially love the over-saturated colours, they add an almost toyish quality to the cars and track.

    Beautfil work, and very well done, Jamey! And thanks for featuring his work here on F1Fanatic, @KeithCollantine !

    Big deal….give me $10,000 worth of camera gear and a $ 5,000 dollar pit access pass and I could do just as good.

    WOW!! These are amazing!
    Thought that I wouldn’t have any F1 wallpapers this year (except for McLarens) but these are just jaw-dropping…
    Im’ still not used to the stepped noses but at some angles the front wheels hide the step and changes the cars appearance completely.

    Some excellent pics Jamey.

    All of his shots are now rotating as my background, absolutely stunning pictures.

    Love the shots, thank you! Fantastic stuff. His style is unique and he’s a great guy, too; I’m an aspiring photographer and he’s always kind enough to answer any questions on Twitter (and is very encouraging too).

    Massa is looking more like his dad every year!

    It’s rare you see such high saturation of colour in photos without it looking really tacky, and that’s been done really well. What I’ve noticed about all of these photos as that every car is made to look really good. Which is something, considering this is 2012…

  12. Journeyer (@journeyer) said on 26th February 2012, 6:36

    Just a question for Jamey – compared to the pics from the F1 teams, the colours seem to be a bit different – maybe a higher saturation? Is this something deliberate or something that came about from the environment where you were shooting?

    • Jamey price said on 26th February 2012, 21:31

      It’s really not that saturated. A lot of other photographers lower the contrast on photos so you get more detail on the cars. But that’s not really what your eye sees.

      I don’t make anything that it isn’t. The most I do is minor cropping and color adjustment. The rest is as it is. I want you to feel like you’re there. F1 is so colorful. It’s stupid not to use those colors!

    Fantastic pictures, I especially like the short shutter speed shots. Does anyone know what kind of camera was used ??? (problably not his I-phone I’m guessing…)

  14. McFillin (@kcampos12) said on 26th February 2012, 7:45

    Great shots, but what’s with the green red bull wing

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 26th February 2012, 7:52

      @kcampos12 That’s flow-vis paint – teams apply it to wings during testing, send the car out onto the track, then bring it back in and examine how the paint has moved. It helps them understand how the airflow is moving over aerodynamic surfaces. You can see them doing it in practice sessions at race weekends sometimes too.

    Great images. Lovely warm and vibrant tone. Already stuck one of them as my phone wallpaper.

    Absolutely fantastic images. Jamey, you are a true talent. Look forward to your sharing more with us over many years.

    If you’ve got f1 photo questions or questions for me, post them to me on twitter @jameypricephoto. I’ll answer the 20 best in a post Keith and I are working on.
