Interview: Meet the WRC Photographer

Recently New Zealand based rally website ‘A little bit Sideways‘ interviewed me on my travels as a WRC Photographer,

Here is an excerpt from that interview:

How did you get involved with WRC duo Hayden Paddon and John Kennard?
I had seen Hayden competing in Australia a few times. I think the big moment was when he won the PWRC in 2011 and I had an entire article published just on his win with my images being published in Motorsport News, and then in 2013 he competed in a Skoda. When I found out about my plans for 2014 and then found out a Kiwi was competing, he was as good as an Aussie;)I honestly just emailed his team and expressed interest, then met them in Sardinia. We chatted a bit more, and they hired me for Rally Australia. They then decided to go the full season with me and my guys for 2015. I am a big believer in persistence. Not to the point of pestering, but to a point where a potential client has to take notice. I wouldn’t be where I am today without persistence.

Big thanks to Jason for the interview, I will also be contributing to the website during the WRC rounds I am attending this year.
