About the Book
For the past three years I have been studying at degree level to take advantage to develop my photographic practice. This has also come in the form of being able to attend race events and acquire trackside experience.
The purpose of this portfolio is to show to prospective employers within the motorsport industry, more specifically picture agencies.
Within this book at forty photographs that have been taken from 2008 and 2010, this is a mixture of black and white photographs and colour.
