In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we have a special guest from the Formula 1 paddock. Kym Illman, the famous Australian F1 photographer, joins us on our show to talk about his journey to becoming one of the sport’s best-known photographers, the art of clicking Formula 1 cars and drivers in action and some expert tips, in case you go snapping! Finally, if you are eager to turn your interest in Formula 1 photography into a career, Kym’s got some great advice for you. Tune in as we celebrate Formula 1’s 1000th Grand Prix this week.

I have had several listeners and readers ask me on how they can pursue a career as an F1 photographer. Kym’s advice and guidance will go a long way in answering those queries. And by the way, if you listen to us on Castbox.fm, check out their ‘featured podcasts’ section!

Talking about the 1000th Grand Prix, there are several pundits who are fueling the debate on whether the 2019 Chinese Grand Prix is the 1000th race or not. Frankly, does this relatively unnecessary statistic matter to anyone? If anything, it projects the sport to be a bit too old – especially in an age when they are working hard to attract younger audiences.
