About us

Powerful photography, inspirational imagery

Passionate about

Spacesuit Media: an energetic photographic agency with a reputation built on powerful portraiture and captivating still and moving imagery. We’ve got a go-anywhere-do-anything attitude and a 100,000 image archive available for editorial and commercial use.

We bring photography to life. The vibrancy and visual flair of our still and and video work has attracted global car makers, world famous race teams, superstar athletes and leading publications.
Our agency was formed to focus on the emerging FIA Formula E series. We’ve covered every single race of that category, working with almost every team on the grid as well as supplying VIP and guest photography to the series promoter. (We shoot other things with wheels, too, such as WRC, WEC, Blanpain, IndyCar, drifting and F1).
Our network of artists now spans three countries, though our project schedule takes us to many more. We’re always ready to suit up for the next big trip. Think we can help? Just ask.

We’re an energetic photographic agency, born in motorsport and with a passion for crafting captivating stories through still and moving imagery. No mountain too high, no river too deep (metaphorically speaking).

Clients who want photos with more oopmh than rocket boosters.
We’ve worked for race teams (McLaren’s on the list); racing drivers (including Lucas di Grassi, Bruno Senna, Nico Prost and Nick Heidfeld); engineering and tech businesses (including HPE and TE Connectivity); global car makers (such as Renault and Citroen’s DS); and publications (BBC Focus, Spiegel, Esquire, Road&Track and Auto, to name just a few). Our stuff has even been used by Sir Richard Branson.
We’re the 2016 photographic partner for Greenpower and the exclusive 2015-16 supplier of VIP and off-track photography to Formula E.

Attention to detail, vivid colours and the knack of capturing the essence of a story in a single frame.
We cut our teeth in motorsport, which has taught us how to bank the perfect shot first time.
It’s not all about cars, however. Our photographers believe that the life and soul of every tale has a person at its heart. That’s why we’ve honed our skills to be able to deliver powerful portraiture, regardless of sector, subject or setting. (And yes, we even shoot in the rain.)

Carefully. We look out for three things:

  1. Natural flair and an eye for the unusual (talent cannot be learned)
  2. Sublime skills (we’re masters of our equipment and its possibilities)
  3. Sensitivity to surroundings (we don’t get in the way, even when we’re going for the uber close-ups – and we always mind our manners)

Yes. We have an archive of more than 100,000 photos, covering various racing series (Formula E, WRC, WEC, F1, IndyCar and others) as well as other sports and events. Many of these are available as stock imagery for editorial or commercial use and may be used under the appropriate license.

We never sell our copyright. This protects the intellectual property of our photographers and allows us to attract and retain the most talented artists.
Our licences are extremely flexible, however, and are tailored to fit your needs. When working under commission, we can include exclusivity in distribution (we’re trusted to shoot private tests, secret tech for new product launches, key personnel changes and more).
Our stuff looks amazing online and in print: we’d love to see you make full use of our photography. For more details, just ask.
