I’m a fan of photography first and a photographer second. We never stop learning about our art.
Shiv is the co-founder and artistic director of Spacesuit Media. He’s known as the go-to guy for artistic Formula E photographer and has been an accredited season pass holder since the sport’s inception.
Shiv is a third-generation photographer and an unabashed motor racing geek with an encyclopaedic knowledge of F1 history. He firmly believes that being a fan of sport first and foremost pays dividends, as passion for the subject seeps through every photograph.
More recently, Shiv has been spending more and more time working with moving imagery; he’s been commissioned to capture footage of engineering businesses at work, racing cars and behind-the-scenes interviews with racing drivers, engineers and mechanics.
