Today's Photo of the Day comes from the 2017 Westernationals at the Perth Motorplex, and features Top Doorslammer driver Scott MacLean, seen here in a rare Sunday morning qualifying session. These sessions only occur when circumstances have forced the cancellation of a night time session and that round of qualifying has to be completed the next day. While not usually ideal for the drivers, it is the only time we get to see a Doorslammer hit the Motorplex strip with the sun on the left hand side of the car, so it provides for a unique photo opportunity.

It's not often I get to shoot concerts, but it is something I enjoy doing. There's a different set of challenges to those you encounter most of the time, and yet, a lot of the things you learn shooting motorsport still apply. There are some really weird lighting situations to deal with, usually only one chance to get a particular shot right, and quite a few restrictions on where you can actually shoot from that limit you, but at the same time force you to challenge yourself. Today's Photo of the Day comes from a gig I was lucky enough to shoot back in 2011, when ZZ Top played the Perth Motorplex, supported by Rose Tattoo, The Joy Evelation and Datura, and features the three members of ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, during their set.
