Before he was a fixture in the MotoGP paddock, our main-man Scott Jones had to swing a lens just like everyone else: sans a GP photo credential. Luckily for our Nikon-clad photo warrior, his home track, Laguna Seca, provides some of the best vantage points on the GP calendar for non-credential holding photographer s — a fact Scott exploited during his first forays into photographing the premier-class.

Ready to share his hard-learned lessons related to shooting around armco, trees, and chain-linked fences, Scott will be down at the San Francisco D-Store on Sunday, July 15th, leading a seminar for would-be motor sport photographers, with the Red Bull US GP round at Laguna Seca specifically in mind.

Up to 15 individuals will learn how to shoot like a pro, and the experience will be complete as those attending the class will get the chance to have their photos published right here on Asphalt & Rubber. For full details about Scott’s MotoGP photography clinic, head over to his personal blog for all the info. We hope to see you at the D-Store on the July 15th and at Laguna Seca on July 29th.
