Hey everyone, though I'd introduce myself. Name is Thomas Hobbs. I'm a photog in Tallahassee, FL. I shoot Football for FSU, but my passion is racing. I do stills too and mainly shoot for Smith Motorworks, a Panama City Beach EVOMS tuner, but for me nailing the right shot at the track takes everything. I've put a few in here, though I know they are 2yrs old. You can check out my webpage at Thomas Hobbs Photography and of course I have a Flickr page that might be better for you to see at Flickr: hobbstc's Photostream






Audi's first pit stop.


























Last one for now.

Last racing for now. Here's where the 500mm lens really shined, getting up close and personal with the drivers. Especially when I added the 1.4 teleconveter to it and made it a 700mm lens. Enjoy...

Thanks for the welcome. I do shoot stills and regular auto shots too. Here's a gallery from this past weekend at a Charity Car Show in Destin, FL. Cant beat a real GT2 and Carrera GT's!

Destin Charity Car Show - TCH Photography | Facebook

And to answer the questions about equipment, the 2006 photos were taken with a then new Canon 20D and both 70-200 2.8L and 500 F4L lenses. The 2008 photos were taken with a Canon 1D (yes the old school one) with the 70-200 and a 400 2.8L with a 1.4tc attached. Starting last fall I switched to Nikon with a D300 right now. Going to take a 300 2.8 to Petit and try a little more wide angle with a 24-70 2.8. The shots on Facebook were with the 300. And the EVOMS day shots at Smith Motorworks in my Flickr were with it as well.

And if anyone wants to tag along/talk I'd be more than happy to share some techniques, etc. with anyone.
