As part of our commitment to shine the spotlight on more up and coming photographers, this we week we are proud to introduce you to the work of Alexis Goure. The 26 year old from Le Mans in France recently graduated from the IAE of Toulouse with a masters in Marketing. However, Alexis is currently focused on developing his career as a motorsport photographer. As you will see from the following, he’s a dab hand at it too…
(Above) During a trackday with over 30 Ferrari on Le Mans track, this F40 was so beautiful… I couldn’t resist to shoot it in its box.
The same day, I like this point of view, a different angle to appreciate the 458.
Last year was the first time I shot the 24H of Le Mans with an accreditation. I love the pitlane atmosphere, Audi’s pitstop were stressful, you can’t see the army of photographers behind me.
The R18 arrived and departed so fast. One of my best moments of the 24H.
The famous Dunlop bridge. Motorsport photography isn’t only about the cars. The locations and lifestyle are just as important in my opinion. Le Mans wouldn’t be Le Mans without this part of the track.
The pit lane by night looks like a studio: the background is dark and we just work with the overhead lights. The blue sky just contrasted with the colour of the yellow Corvette.
Funny photo, with race cars in a bus stop. It was for the scutineering at Le Mans. Not every day you see that!
The 2012 Le Mans podium, Audi 1-2-3.
After the 24H, there was the Le Mans Classic. It’s a lovely race with a lot of vintage race cars and the traditional Le Mans style start. Whilst the cars were lined up and the drivers awaited the starter’s flag, a Porsche 910 crossed the pit lane to the fuel station.
Motorsport is a human experience. I like this moment when the driver debriefs his laps with the team manager.
The weather this year was crazy, as you can see the sky was unreal. Light was perfect even if ten minutes after it was raining.
This BMW 3.5 CSL ’74 was one of my personal favourite looking cars of the weekend.
My first McLaren MP4-12C GT3, on the grid walk during the GT Tour at Le Mans. It’s a beautiful GT car. I hope to see it again in 2013.
And when I don’t shoot race events, I shoot cars like these two Morgans. The sound of the three wheeler was outstanding!
Paddock pics can be interesting, especially when there is a Lamborghini Gallardo involved.
The 2-Eleven is a car that I hope I will have one day. Like a Radical, it’s a street legal race car. You can’t imagine how much I like this idea!
The orange looks great on the 1M. This was a good shooting day, the car is so photogenic.
I hope you will find my selection interesting. If you want, check out my website which is linked below.
