A large number of current and former World Rally Championship photographers gathered together last week for the funeral of former colleague, Hugh Bishop. Bishop pioneered the work of freelance rally reporting during the days when specialist media work in rallying was in its infancy, before the foundation of the World Rally Championship. His work was sought by magazines around the world. Hugh was a specialist in the old pre-digital days and was notable for his work of taking colour and black and white pictures simultaneously using separate cameras, and also helped develop the work of recceing possible photo locations. During the 1990s, he supplied RallySport Magazine with stories and photos from WRC and international events. Long-time colleague, Maurice Selden, provided this photo of some of Hugh's good mates, taken after his funeral. Hugh Bishop was 72.
