My nickname among the Reuters photographers in Tokyo is "Crasher".
They call me that because I always seem to get pictures right at the moment of a crash whenever I cover motorsports.
One colleague sometimes teases me saying "You’ve got to stop pouring oil on the track," and I answer: "I would never use oil -- I only use banana skins!"
In motorsports the most exciting moment you can capture in a picture is a crash.
That instant can be the difference between life and death, and it’s a picture that is most difficult to capture.
My technique is to pay attention to any unusual movements. Racers usually all try to keep to the same optimum path through a curve.
