LOCATION: Farleigh Castle (Bath)


This sports-focused experience takes us to Farleigh Castle in Somerset initially for some fast-paced motocross action on the dirt track. It’s a focusing event like no other.

A day out at an extremely friendly MotoX event at one of the best tracks in the country. Veteran riders on older bikes – many from the 70s, 80s and 90s – riding superbly in lots of different heats throughout the day. We’ll have ample opportunities to shoot from all different angles and in varied conditions.

Don’t be put off by the veterans tag – these bikers really know what they are doing! So there is no lack of action for us to focus on.

You’ll have a tutor between five of you for the whole day, explaining the settings to use for each shooting position. During the day you’ll learn about focusing areas, focusing modes, the settings required to both freeze and blur the action, how to cope with ever-changing light levels and backlighting, as well as looking at the useful focusing customisations (selected models). Most races are between four and eight laps so gaps in-between will allow us to teach the best settings.

We’re excited to bring this experience to you – watch out for more throughout 2019!
