                                      Historic Motor Racing


Motor racing is all about a sense of speed, action and excitement. I seek to produce exceptional pictures, which capture the essence of motor sport within a still photograph. 

I have been greatly encouraged by a steady flow of positive feedback on my work, which included winning the inaugural Credit Suisse Goodwood Photography Competition. In 2016, I was awarded 'Image of the Year'  by the Guild of Photographers for the Events, Sport and Action category and was runner-up in the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Automobile Club. In 2007, I  received the 'Image of the Year' award again from the Guild of Photographers for the same category and I won the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Automobile Club. In addition, I was made a Master Craftsman by the Guild of Photographers, which is their highest qualification.

I can only show a small percentage of my images on the website, so these photos are meant primarily to provide examples of the quality of my work and show the major events covered. My efforts are concentrated primarily upon photographing historic sports and GT cars, although I do cover a growing range of motor sports activities.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos!
