When you have me as your rally photographer, you’ve got an experienced hand. I grew up in rallying and rally photography. As you brief me I’ll discuss what you require and the results you expect. I’ll plan out the event in terms of timing and location.
Rallies are sometimes a challenge to photograph because of the unpredictable nature of the sport. Some locations are difficult to enter, and I’ll plan as best as possible to get to the most scenic and exciting spots on stage. I’ll arrange my timing to as many stages and service points I can. If you require more than just action shots, I’ll get to service points and aim to photograph your team too.

My Dad was a rally driver when I was born and our family car was actually a real rally car – a Datsun 1600 (510). Rallying was different back then in the late 1970’s. A rally car wasn’t too uncomfortable to drive on the daily.
As a teenager, I studied photography. As part of my Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) I took my trusty Minolta SRT-101 with me to the events for rally photography.
I’d spend my time capturing the action and emotions of the sport at grass roots up to Australian Rally Championship.
I was soon getting requests from the rally crews asking to buy my photos. It was a great thrill to be out photographing rally cars, combining two of my main passions. So, now with over two decades of photographing rally cars from grass roots club events to the World Rally Championship, I see myself as an expert. I know how to photograph cars to capture the emotion of the sport.
