One of my favorite clients just made it a little more interesting for me and for all sports fans. Speed Channel, an entity of Fox Sports Media Group, has decided to directly compete with ESPN and is launching a new national, multi sport network that will give sports fans some more options and ESPN a little competition. In preparation for the launch of FS1 they spared no expense in hiring Director Joseph Kahn in filming a 90 second commercial spot to air at tomorrow nights Major League All-Star Game, which will feature NFL’s Joe Flacco & Patrick Willis, Nascars Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne, USA Soccer star Alex Morgan, and Ultimate Fighter Georges St Pierre among others. Here are just a couple of production stills I photographed for FS1 for their Public Relations purposes from the Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne shoot at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The commercial will air around the 5th inning of the All Star Game on Tuesday, July 16th if you want to check it out.
Between May21st and 31st race fans from all over the country descend on Charlotte to enjoy the Nascar experience. At the center of that experience is Speed TV, the Charlotte based broadcasting company that is the nation’s first and foremost cable television network dedicated to motor sports and the fan experience.
While hundreds of photographers covered the drivers, race teams, and events, my job was to focus on my clients needs by documenting the broadcast teams, sets, fan interaction, corporate involvement, and the overall brand that has become synonymous with all things motorsports. These are just a few but if interested you can find a larger selection under my recent projects category of my website.
