Photography is Roger’s first discipline, consequently during his time covering grand prix and sports car racing in the 60’s and 70’s he worked solely with a camera contributing images to a number of magazines but was also fortunate enough to be commissioned by some of the then sponsors to supply them with photographs. These commissions allowed access to the teams and personnel that would be impossible today; it was a more relaxed era a where photographer could wander freely with his camera. Photographers were able to work just a foot or two away from an apex or maybe even resting against the Armco, not to mention the freedom they enjoyed on Monaco’s pavements. All now a thing of the past, like Le Mans starts, but those shots had an intimacy that is very difficult to achieve today.
After a break of over 20+ years Roger paid a visit to the Goodwood Revival, where he met up with many old friends, both human and mechanical, and decided there and then to get back into motorsport. Obviously he was going to feel more at home in the burgeoning Historic Racing scene as it contained many cars that were already very familiar to him. Realising that if, in conjunction with his own photo archive, he could develop his writing skills this would enable him to offer a complete package of articles and images drawn from first hand experience. Now Roger provides, in addition to reports from historic meetings, images, retrospective articles and features for authors, publishers and magazines throughout the world.
