During my years as a Motorsport photographer and journalist I have been privileged to visit most of the legendary race circuits and meet many of the iconic drivers from Grand Prix and Sports Car racing, in addition to reporting on some fantastic motor races.
When I started covering Formula One and Endurance Car Racing it was possible for a journalist to have free access to both drivers and team personal, allowing the reporter to build up a very intimate picture of events. Once the action started photographers could work just a few feet from the trackside facilitating the use of short focal length lenses that gave an immediacy to those shots which is impossible to achieve today with the mandatory long telephotos.
Grand Prix and Sports Car racing has evolved over this time from a sport that was patronised by wealthy privateers and specialist car manufacturers to the multi million pound business that it is today and I am thrilled to have been able to document some of those changes.
My work has been published in many magazines, including F1 News, Classic Cars, Autosport, Virage Auto, Motoring News, Classic & Sports Car, Vintage Racecar, Red Racing Green and Automoveis Classicos, among the companies that have used my photographs are Champion Spark Plugs, John Player, STP Oil Treatment, Bonhams and Alfa Romeo.
Having also spent time working as a newspaper photographer, back in the days when we were required not only to take the photographs, but develop, print and caption them as well, I have an excellent grounding in photojournalism. Of course the digital age has made those hours in the darkroom a thing of the past and electronic transfer means that images and articles can now be sent to the other side of the world in seconds, all a huge change from when I first started to work with a camera.
I now provide not only articles and photographs covering the present day historic racing scene, but retrospective features as well, usually illustrated from my own photo archive. Of course many of my original photographs from the 1960/70’s are of cars that now run in historic events and I'm often able to included these "in period" images in my reports. All my articles, reports and features are tailored to suit the style and needs of the client. With ‘analogue’ material being converted into high-resolution scans and digital material shot in 16bit RAW format to offer the best possible quality for use in ‘top end’ publications. You can find more specific image supply information under the MEDIA heading.
