This is a portrait I did of Colin Chapman. Chapman was the Founder of Lotus Cars and managed the company and their Formula 1 team for many years. This image also shows Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson in the John Player Special Lotus F1 cars. The original images were shot on 35mm Kodachrome film back in the late 70’s.
This is a portrait I did of James Hunt. Hunt was the 1976 Formula 1 Champion driving for McLaren. Ron Howard’s 2013 movie “Rush” was about the F1 duel between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. I had the opportunity to photograph that duel in real life back in the mid to late 70’s. This image is one I shot originally on 35mm Kodachrome film. The new version here is a digital edit of the original and is part of a limited edition set of prints that I am producing. It will also be part of a coffee table book I am producing with a collection of my F1 images from that period.
