What inspired you to make this website?
Simply because I enjoy taking photographs, particularly of motorsport and I wanted to share my efforts with whoever may be interested. The internet is the fastest and most cost effective way to do this.
Did you design and build the website yourself?
Yes. Although I'm far from an expert I prefer to have full control rather than pay a person / company to do it for me. I know the design is rather plain but my main objective was to keep it simple - so I do hope you find it easy to use.
Are you on Facebook or Twitter?
Yes I'm on both! Please show your support and keep right up-to-date via either Facebook or Twitter. I will be updating regularly so just click below and "like" or "follow" to get involved:
There are a lot of photos on here, did you take all of them?
Yes, ALL photographs you see on AE-Photography.co.uk are entirely my own work. I do not publish photos from other sources. As this is my website I shall only publish photos that I have taken.
I notice the orange RSS logo on the homepage. What is it for?
RSS (often referred to as Really Simple Syndication) is a group of XML web feed formats used for web content syndication. With the use of a "feed reader" you can quickly and easily check out the latest updates to AE-Photography.co.uk.
The first thing you need to do to start receiving syndicated content is to download an RSS feed reader (also called RSS / News aggregator). These readers will download and display RSS feeds. Many readers are stand-alone programs while others are web based to be viewed in your browser. There are many free readers available, personally I use RssReader which I have found very easy to get to grips with. Once you have your reader set up, you just need to copy and paste the URL of the feed into your reader as a new feed.
The AE-Photography.co.uk update feed URL is:
The pictures seem take a while to load up?
If you are on a dial-up connection then I'm afraid so. The website is really designed for broadband use. Alternatively a smaller selection of images are normally posted to my Facebook Page.
What forms of motorsport do you cover?
Easy question to answer this one... EVERYTHING!
Here is a quick rundown of some of the formats I have attended: A1GP, Ascar, BEMSEE, Britcar, British Formula 3, British GT, British Rally, British Superbikes, BTCC, CART, Clio Cup, DTM, Formula BMW, Formula Ford, Formula One, Formula Palmer Audi, Formula Renault, Ginettas, Goodwood Festival of Speed, LMES, Minis, MRO, Porsche Cup, SEAT Leon Cupra Cup, Sidecars, Trucks, World Superbikes and WRC... to name just a few.
As you can see I have covered many club, national and international events. I enjoy all levels of motorsport whether it be on 2, 3 or 4 wheels - or more!
You mention on your homepage prints may be available. Why should I consider purchasing a print?
Digital photos in principle are great however they don't always look the same on everybodies PC - there are too many variables. What may look good on my monitor might not look as good on yours and vice-versa. This is because we all have different resolution, brightness, contrast and colour settings. The great thing about a print is that you have the most optimised image possible with no variables and no compromise in quality.
You can order prints directly from the Galleries from 2010 onwards. Or by all means please contact me me stating which photo(s) you would like, the quantity, size(s) and finish (gloss or matt). I will respond with pricing and payment details.
I'm looking for a specific photo, do you have it?
Due to webspace, bandwidth and time constraints the galleries only display a small selection of photos taken. I take far more photos than can ever be displayed on the website, so possibly yes. Please contact me outlining your requirements.
Can you cover a motorsport event / test / trackday for me?
Sure, call 0775 123 1893 or email me me with details.
Can I put your photos on my website / forum?
I would prefer you didn't as I have a very limited amount of bandwidth and hotlinking will drain my monthly allowance. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
What equipment do you use?
I use Canon Digital SLR cameras with a combination of Canon and Sigma lenses.
What camera settings do you use?
I am often asked this and to be honest it's not really a question I can answer as it completely depends on conditions and the shot I'm trying to achieve.
Have you had any photos published?
Yes. As mentioned on the homepage my photos are frequently used in both online and printed media. My photography has featured in almost all mainstream UK based motorsport publications as well as other popular magazines. Some of my work has even been published further afield including the Netherlands, Australia and South Africa.
What settings are this website optimised for?
I originally designed the website for use with an Internet Explorer browser at 1024 x 768 resolution. Obviously things have changed quite a bit over the years, especially with the evolution of "mobile". So ensuring compatibility with all types of display is not easy. If you notice anything untoward please contact me with details. Thank you.
Are there any other addresses for your website?
Yes there are. The following addresses will also display AE-Photography.co.uk:
Alternatively try "googling" Az Edwards or AE Photography should do the job!
