Shifting Gears & Capturing the Thrills

This season covering the Formula One my ethos remains the same: how can I stay current? I never want my photos to become boring and repetitive . Stylistically, my inspiration comes from the personalities of the F1 drivers– I respect my colleagues but don’t want to copy their photographic styles or follow their leads, I’ll find my own way thanks. This year, in my opinion, the halo driver-safety device presents the biggest challenge to F1 photographers that we’ve ever seen.

The London Excel track, purpose-built for Formula E, adds an extra layer of uniqueness to the experience. Nestled within the bustling cityscape, the track presents a challenging canvas for both drivers and photographers alike. The juxtaposition of high-tech racing machines against the backdrop of urban architecture creates a visually captivating narrative, allowing me to explore innovative angles and perspectives that differ from the more traditional Formula 1 circuits. The intimate nature of Formula E races, set against the backdrop of iconic city landmarks, offers a thrilling proximity to the action. Unlike the sprawling Formula 1 tracks that wind through vast landscapes, Formula E circuits are designed to navigate tight city streets, creating an up-close-and-personal atmosphere for both fans and photographers. The challenge lies in capturing the speed and precision of these electric beasts as they navigate the twists and turns, often mere inches away from barriers. The difference between Formula E and Formula 1 becomes not just a matter of propulsion but a celebration of diversity, innovation, and a shared passion for the artistry of motorsport.
