BACK ON THE ROAD AGAIN Our Apprentice gets expert tuition from Canon pro motorsports photographer, Drew Gibson. Page 8 Editor What’s better than watching motorsport racing on the track? Photographing that same exciting motorsports action with your Canon gear, of course! This issue our Apprentice spends a day trackside at Brands Hatch with petrol-head pro photographer Drew Gibson.

It’s a brilliant way of showing her battling her inner demons and the execution of the idea is fantastic. The mono treatment adds loads of atmosphere and has helped him fight off the competition to win first place in this month’s Sports Day contest. Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Exposure 1/160 sec, f/8, ISO100 02 GOLDEN BOY BY AZEEZUR RAHMAN KHAN Azeezur tells us: “This was my first time shooting a boxing match and I was lucky enough to see Adli ‘GoldenBoy’ Hafidz take on his opponent – the brutal speed and accuracy of his punches was mind blowing!” Azeezur’s use…
