From the Archives: Silverstone Retrospective

August 22, 2017  •  1 Comment
After three years, forty races and tens of thousands of photographs, my time as a full time MotoGP photographer came to an end when the chequered flag dropped at Valencia in 2016. Actually, it would be a couple of hours later but that would be less poetic. Those three years were an absolute blast and I'll cherish the memories for the rest of my da...

Isle of Man TT 2017

June 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
TT 2017 has come and gone and I’ve had plenty of time to reflect on what was an emotional, at times testing but otherwise fantastic 2 weeks on the Road Racing Capital of the World. The fickle Manx weather meant the bikes didn’t turn a wheel until Tuesday evening. That actually worked in my favour as I was at Donington Park for the World Superbikes...

Desktop Calendar: November 2016 - Marc Marquez at Assen

November 02, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
The choice of who to feature in the November desktop background was pretty easy. Which picture to pick was a little tougher. I didn't travel to any of the fly-away races so wasn't in Japan to witness Marc Marquez clinch his 3rd MotoGP title. When I sat down to decide which picture to choose I remembered this image from Assen, which I think perfec...

Desktop Calendar: October 2016 - Dani Pedrosa in Misano

October 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
For the October 2016 desktop calendar, I've decided to go with this image of Dani Pedrosa at the San Marino Grand Prix at Misano. Pedrosa rode a fantastic race in Misano to beat Valentino Rossi. In doing so he became the 8th different winner in 8 consecutive races. Photo details: Camera: Nikon D3s Lens: Nikon 300mm f/4E PF ED VR ISO: 200 Expo...

Desktop Calendar: September 2016 - Cal Crutchlow at Brno

September 15, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Septembers desktop background is rather late. I've not been home much recently to get it done. Anyway enough of the excuses. Picking the image for September was an easy choice. It had to be Cal Crutchlow. Cal has had an amazing couple of months. He and his wife Lucy had their first child in August. He claimed his first grand prix victory at Brno,...

Desktop Calendar: August 2016 - Ian Hutchinson at TT2016

August 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
My good friend and fellow MotoGP photographer Scott Jones has been offering desktop backgrounds via his Photo.GP website for some time now. It's something I've been planning on adding to my site and I've finally got round to creating my first one. I'm a couple of days late, but my desktop background for August 2016 features Ian Hutchinson at Unio...

Isle of Man TT 2016

July 07, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
The dust has long since settled on the 2016 Isle of Man TT and what a TT it was. The weather was amazing, probably the best I can remember. The pace on track was red hot with lap records being smashed out of sight. My personal highlights being Michael Dunlop's lap just short of 134mph including slowing down for a pit stop in the Senior and Ian Hut...

From the Archives: Michael Dunlop 2012 North West 200

May 13, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
With the North West 200 currently in full swing, I thought I’d share this image of Michael Dunlop from the last time I was there. Taken during Thursday morning’s practice session at the 2012 North West 200. The weather conditions were far from perfect that day. Despite the poor weather Michael still looks committed as he rides over the crest of Bl...
