Behind The Lens
The Alonso Crash
AthletesVoice and Canon Australia have partnered for a five-part video series Behind The Lens, featuring Australia’s most respected sports photographers detailing how they captured some of the most iconic sports images ever taken, and the inner workings of their craft.
Canon Master photographer Phil Hillyard (News Corp) takes us into the inner sanctum of Australian sports photography to share the images you know, and the stories you don’t with Alex Coppel (News Corp), Cameron Spencer (Getty Images), Ryan Pierse (Getty Images), David Gray (Reuters) and Craig Golding (freelance).
In episode two of Behind The Lens, prominent Australian sports photographer Hillyard and his peers discuss how the Herald Sun’s Alex Coppel was one of the only photographers who captured Fernando Alonso’s dramatic crash at the Australian GP in 2016. The photographers also describe the continual dangers of shooting motorsports and what it means to be lucky in your profession.
