Photographer Shoots Formula 1® With 104-Year-Old Camera, Gets Stunning Results

If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do for a day job? Formula 1® photographer probably wouldn’t be too far down my list, but for Lollipop Magazine photographer Joshua Paul, it’s a reality. Paul recently decided to change things up a little, and rather than use a modern camera, he opted to use a Graflex 4×5 view camera from 1913. The results speak for themselves.

Paul started shooting F1 snaps at the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix, and is now on his 5th season of F1. He has since created Lollipop Magazine, which specialises in documenting Formula 1® race weekends. You can find more of his work on the Lollipop website and on his Instagram.  

The latest and greatest cameras can all shoot a fair way over 12 frames per second, however Paul is limited to taking just 20 photos per session with his 104-year-old camera. Therefore, he has to really set the scene and pick his shot. You can see for yourself how the extra time and care influences the end result. These shots are nothing short of beautiful.

More photos & information can be found on the PetaPixel website.
