PHD photo was created in 2020 as an outlet for the work I had being producing. Having captured images at events from Prescott, Goodwood, BTCC through to the 24 hours of Le Mans there was an ever growing portfolio that I wanted to share more widely.
I first picked up a 35mm camera to capture cycling shots of the Tour de France travelling across the route taking in places like; Alpe d'Huez, Mont Ventoux and Paris. Only having a limited number of exposures meant quickly learning to make every frame count, looking for the image others were ignoring and not wasting frames, a way of working I carried over into the world of digital.
I was introduced to the world of motorsport by pals who were adamant it was the best thing since sliced bread. I was instantly wowed by the experiences I was having and wanted more. The speed, intensity and unrivalled joy and passion. In 2016 the journey to capture quality motorsport images began. Experiencing four seasons in one day at Spa, the sheer size of Le Mans and through it all; the awesomeness of the motorsport family; a unique band of men and women chasing the ultimate prize.
There is nothing like being around a motorsport paddock or out on track, capturing the art, people, senses and emotions of the automotive worlds of WEC, BTCC, Goodwood, Le Mans and more. It is something very special and I appreciate every moment.
