>Chad Gibson x Drift Practice

>Hello all,

As a new photographer to illmotion, I’ll make this my introduction post as well as host some shots I took this evening at Race City’s drift practice that happens every other week.

My full name is Chad Gibson and I’m a recent graduate of SAIT Polytechnic’s Photojournalism program. As I continue my search for a job in my field, I am trying to shoot as much as possible before I find my time limited by a career. The illmotion crew was awesome enough to let me on board, and by being a part of the community I hope to get to know the car community in Calgary better as well as forward my experience and contacts.

For those interested, I drive a 4-door Nissan Skyline that is staying as close to stock as possible for reliability and driveability purposes. Mostly though, I have no freaking idea what I’m doing. I am trying to learn though, and maybe one day my car can hang with the rest of the crew and look like it belongs.

Anyways, as mentioned above, every other Wednesday night Race City holds an open drift practice event where anyone can bring their car and do runs on the oval and infield. Tonight was my first time shooting drifting and I’m not happy with a lot of the stuff I got, but by the end I was getting a little better. I should also mention that there were rumors they may stop this recurring event if attendance doesn’t pick up, so get out there and drive or support the sport. My condolences also go out to Rob who had a spectacular crash in his camo-painted 240SX. I’ll let the pictures do the talking from here on out.
