It is always a pleasure to shoot the Red Bull Air Race, but Japan was kind of special because I have never been to Japan. A new culture a new location and kind of a new experience. Sleeping was pretty tricky due to a time difference of 7 hours.
The shooting schedule was pretty full, because there is not only the race action to shoot, there are way more tasks and requests to fulfill. And there is always a rush in those hours. So you need to stay awake and get the shots in as soon as possible, because there is no time between your schedule. Equipped with the shooting equipment and a radio, going from one task to the other.
Many hours of work which is all worth it.
