Motorsport photographer Jamey Price has created a rare insight into the demands of covering professional racing with a new 12-minute documentary titled FRAMES.
Made with the help of crowdfunding, the film, which is intended to serve as the pilot for a future series, follows Charlotte-based Price as he pushes through the physical and mental fatigue that goes with the territory of shooting the 24 Hours of Spa.
“FRAMES is a story of endurance, and the story behind the ‘frames’ we captured during a 24-hour race,” Price said.
“I love motorsport and have for as long as I can remember. The noise, the color, the atmosphere of a big race: there’s nothing quite like it. We wanted this film to go beyond the race and really show just how demanding a race like this is on a photographer. In fact, when my parents saw an early cut of the film, they were moved to tears – they finally understood what my job really involves.
“I’m so proud that this pilot accurately reflects what my fellow photographers and I go through race by race, month by month, year by year.”
