Pia smiles for the APL camera

The sound of revving engines and cars reaching top speeds of 300 km/h, Albert Park is full of throttle this weekend with the 2010 Formula 1 QANTAS Australian Grand Prix.

While the Grand Prix attracts a lot of action and attention on the track, the annual Formula One event is just as exciting off the track, with the Official Grand Prix Ball at Crown’s Palladium, hosting the ultimate party for the racing celebration.

Competing F1 drivers and their teams, sponsors, industry leaders and local and international celebrities attended the event on Friday night, with APL Photography capturing the arrivals, with his shutter speed competitive to take on the race drivers.

Gabriella Cilmi, who provided the entertainment on the night, was captured by Anthony, along with Paul Licuria, Eddie McGuire and Nicole Livingstone. Sam Newman and Tim Holding also posed for the APL lens, along with Kate Ceberano and Curtis Stone.

The Grand Prix has provided a weekend of sports, events and entertainment, with our photographer naturally immersed amongst the action, taking no pit stops when it comes to the major events on the social calendar.
