Darren Heath - F1 Photographer
Like mechanics, F1 photographers are a breed apart. They are both artists and artisans; they live in the motor sport background, blending into a scenery that they themselves create; and, most of the time, they must be so passionate about their world that they are prepared to work for nothing. One such is Darren Heath, a genius I was fortunate to meet in the late 1990s, when we were all working at Haymarket's new monthly magazine, F1 Racing. It was easy, teaming with Darren - just as I'd always had a smooth time with such snappers as Nigel Snowdon, David Phipps, Peter Cramer, Keith Sutton, Michael Cooper and Maurice Rowe: my mediocre copy, I knew, would inevitably be carried by the creativity of Darren Heath. Today a freelance, with both editorial and commercial clients, Darren is roundly acknowledged as the....Fernando....of his industry. Or, perhaps, the Lewis. We shall see when we meet him in Episode 57. Fresh from his head-turning exhibition in London, Darren will be talking us through some of his best works, his life, his loves and his taste for what is right in the world of Formula One - and, yes, for what is not so right.
