ProStarPics.com – Motorsport Photographer
I’m an accredited F1 photo journalist focusing on the behind-the-scenes side of Formula 1.
By posting images along with engaging captions to Instagram moments after taking them, I’ve amassed more than 350,000 followers. On top of that, another 450,000 people follow me on YouTube, Tiktok, Facebook and Twitter. These are avid F1 fans keen to know everything about this fascinating sport and as long as they’re interested, I’ll continue to share my experiences with them.
Do you have a good photo tip you can share with us?
For isolating Formula 1 drivers as they walk throughout the paddock, crouch low so you can get them with the sky behind, instead of crowds of people.
What’s a memorable moment you can share?
I had 10 minutes with Pierre Gasly outside the Alpha Tauri Formula 1 garage to do a personal photo shoot with him, using a Hasselblad camera.
