Craig Boon and Leanne Wilson are the two directors of Octane Photographic Ltd, having met back in the start of 2010, combining their passion for motor sports and photography, Octane Photographic was born. We are an independent, UK registered, motorsport photography agency supplying images, articles and event reviews to local, national and international media outlets both in print and online.
From 2010 the company has gone from strength to strength, having covered many different championships from national to international levels, we now specialise in single seater formulae through various levels from Formula Ford, Formula Two, Formula Three, GP3, GP2 to Formula One.
Away from single seater formulae, we also cover WRC, World Super Bikes, BTCC, and endurance championships.
Spotting the young up and coming talent from the feeder series into matured stars of the future is something we find particularly rewarding.
Now based out of our new HQ in Breedon-on-the-Hill, just 5 minutes from the iconic Donington Park racing circuit, Craig and Leanne (being accredited Formula One and support series photographers,) mainly concentrate on international series, whilst Octane Photographic’s associated photographers, Chris Enion and Carl Jones cover British championships on clashing weekends.
“Capture the moment, not just the image“, is the tag line for our company, we believe that this sums up what we want to do perfectly.
The entire team’s equipment is drawn from the Canon EOS Digital professional lineup and currently includes 7D, and 1D Mk.IV bodies along with a plethora of lenses from 14mm up to the 500mm prime.
