From hobby snapper to official photographer for the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team, Richard Pardon has come a long way in a few short years.
There are not many photographers willing to be coaxed out from behind the camera. “Can’t you just use pictures of the cars?” he asks, shifting in his seat. With much of the world in lockdown, and all but essential travel banned, the photoshoot he’s been booked for is cancelled and instead he’s at one end of a video call being quizzed about his climb from hobby snapper to the official photographer for the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team. For a man who’s spent the last decade looking down a lens, he seems a bit surprised to be asked for a photo of himself.
