Even as a boy, John Ross loved motor racing. As a member of the BARC John had access to the pits and the competitors at a very early stage of his career as a photographer. At that time, John was already working for a commercial studio and some of his Goodwood photographs were lying around and caught the eye of a model, Gilliam Rowse, who was married to David Rowse, the owner of Autocourse magazine.
The outcome was an invitation to take pictures for Autocourse and soon after John became the chief photographer. We are delighted to have met John and proud to own his images.
