Geoff Ridder

Starting in the late '70's at Hamilton Car Club sprints, gymkhanas and club rallies, Geoff Ridder’s motorsport photography career so far spans more than 40 years. His first 'cover', which every photographer aspires to achieve, was for Motor Action in 1979, a photo of a Mini on its nose taken at Baypark. Geoff contributed to the first issue of the very popular NZ SpeedSport magazine in February 1990. His work featured in every issue of the magazine until the final edition in July 2010 and was regarded as the magazine’s Chief Photographer. In recent years he was Martin Holmes' representative photographer at WRC Rally Australia and Rally New Zealand events. His work has been recognised with the Motorsport Photographer of the Year award on four occasions and Geoff continues to photograph a wide variety of national and club level events, travelling year-round to circuits and rallies. Geoff is particularly respected for his photographs and portraits of competitors, officials, volunteers, crew members and even spectators which uniquely capture the personalities of motor sport.
