Primarily a photography contributor for leading classic car magazine Octane and occasionally part of Jakob Ebrey’s photography team covering national championships such as BTCC and British GT, Michael has extensive knowledge and experience covering numerous events from local club meetings to international events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Formula 1 British Grand Prix – and just about everything in-between!

Back in 2018 Michael was awarded the accolade for the Motorsport UK Young Photographer of the Year, in which his portfolio was praised for “the breadth of his skillset, covering action, atmosphere and portrait shots."
