July 5 Ask any motoring photographer and they will tell you that their least favourite job is a tracking shot – shooting from car to car, often hanging out of a sunroof or side window.
I’ve seen countless near disasters over the years – photographers falling out, scratching the back of their heads on branches and losing pieces of equipment on the roadside.
Car’s aren’t designed to be photographic platforms – apart from the Jeep Wrangler. It’s quite brilliant because the split opening tailgate means the photographer can sit safely in the boot with the glass screen open.
Of course, the Range Rover is equally as good but the Jeep has a larger window aperture, which snappers love. I obviously can’t advocate sitting in the boot of a moving vehicle, but you get the picture, don’t you?
