Default The French Photographer

Hi everyone !

My name is Thierry, I am 35, French, Photographer, newly settled in Chennai. Since I am 11 I have a real passion for cars and bikes. I have owned several of them... My favorites among all were my '89 Volvo 480 Turbo, my '96 Rover 214i SE convertible and my '92 400cc Suzuki Bandit.

I am coming to this forum because I would like to meet other cars or bikes freaks, especially customized, race prepared or oldtimer ones in order to make some photographic reports on these topics.
I would like to be introduced to any kind of community to join some race track runs, fun rides or even road trips.

Please, do let me know through the forum if anyone is interested.
Have fun and keep on enjoying your cars and bikes !!!

Welcome aboard Thierry. Theres a fair bit of motorsports and racing activity in Chennai. There's a race track on the outskirts of the city where all the racing events are held.

The next round of the racing championship is scheduled for the 30th and 31st of August. Event is open to the public free of cost. If you want a photgraphers pass I can have one organised for you.

Cheers.

Welcome to the forum Thierry! Cheenai is the place to be in India if you want to photograph cars on a track! Team up with Sideways for track access & you're all set!

Have fun!

Hello Thierry, the French Photographer,

Welcome to the site for serious car addicts. Feel free to contact me when you visit Delhi. Perhaps we could coordinate an off road trip with other members or folks from Jeep thrills.

And of course you are welcome to take as many pictures of my Jeep as you like.

Welcome Thierry! Always good to see international members on the forum, especially those settled in India.

yes, keep those photos coming (I'm sure Chennai will give you some good vehicle shooting options).

by the way, which part of France are you from?
J'ai visite la Paris et j'etait en Suisse (francophone) pour trois ans!
