Content Creation “MotoGP Qatar Night” Shooting

Following an exhilarating week of photo and video production capturing the Marlboro Ducati MotoGP Team at the Lusail International Circuit amidst the breathtaking Doha/Qatar desert, I embarked on a captivating documentary-style photo shoot under the starry night sky. The night tests, leading up to the grand race day, added an extra layer of intrigue and excitement.

The first race of the year is always a momentous occasion, marking the beginning of a new race season after months of rigorous winter testing. As the sun sets and the floodlights illuminate the track, a spellbinding magic envelops the atmosphere, enchanting both the teams and the eager spectators.
