    Howdy,

    If you were to talk Classic Motoring Photographers (either static, advertising or Motor Sport), which names would spring to mind? And by Classic, I mean, those who would have done their work in the 50's, 60's and up to the 70's.

    I am starting a small project and I am interested in researching some photographers from the era.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Just off the top of my head, I would start with Jesse Alexander.

    Jesse is still active and has published books of his work.
