Introduction – Rhodri Lewis : Rally is My Passion

As promised, behold our new talented shooter Rhodri Lewis. When I first stumbled upon his work, I knew immediately that I need to talk to him. And boy I’m glad I did just that. Rhodri is based in the United Kingdom and he will use his expertise in photography to share his story at the event from now on. Well enough of hearing from me, let us hear from the man himself.

Dear readers, my name is Rhodri Lewis. My interest in Rallying began at a very young age, as a direct result of growing up on the doorstep of the two famous WRC stages Resolfen and Rheola.

I have vivid memories of the sights and sounds as the likes of Mcrae, Sainz, Makinen and Kankkunen sped past my front door in their Escorts, Imprezas and Celicas on their way out of the stages and into the nearby service park.

My interest in photography didn’t expand beyond small point and shoot film cameras for many years (with mixed results!); but it wasn’t until I purchased my first Pentax SLR camera that I began to improve and take things a little more seriously.

Nature + rally cars in the air, what more could you ask for?

My passion for Rallying and photography really took off with the digital revolution, my first DSLR was a Canon 350D, and the instant results and image editing options really opened my eyes to what was possible.

I quickly taught myself the basics, and through the help and advice from several well respected photographers my images drastically improved in short time.

I’ve now moved onto a Canon 7D and several ‘L’ series lenses (and an empty bank account); in order to get the best out of my images.

I’m very much looking forward to share my work and my experience at rally events, and I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy taking them.

See you out on the stages,

And stay tuned at racerevo,

Great Britain rally will come to your doors Malaysians! Watch out!

Sincerely yours,

Rhodri
