13 Jul Shooting motorsports with the Fuji X series – An interview with Jeff Carter

Source: Mirror Lessons

When I was seven years old, I had a passion for motorsports (Formula 1 especially) thanks to Nigel Mansell. Why him? Well, because he was driving a blue/yellow car and I loved those colors (yep, I was a kid after all!). My family, on the other hand, was all about the “rossa” Ferrari (I was living in Italy at the time).

Growing up, my main interest became photography and videography but I didn’t lose my interest in motorsports. After starting this website, I began to follow Jeff Carter’s work not only because his affiliation with Fujifilm but also because of the genre he was involved in. I thought: what a great way to combine two great passions!

Jeff has been working in the business for the past 20 years and founded MacLean Photographic in 1996. Based in Scotland, he works as a photographer for several media companies and magazines including BBC Top Gear, Autosport, The Sun and many others. He is also a FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) Media Delegate and one of four FIA World Championship Media Officials (F1, WRC, WTCC and FIAWEC). In 2015 he became an X-Photographer and started his collaboration with Fujifilm which involves testing pre-production equipment like the brand new X-T2 that he has been using for the past three months. We sat down with him to find out what it is like to shoot car races and the world surrounding them.
