Some folks watch and talk about Formula 1 but other try to capture the essence of the sport in frozen moments in time. Our guest tonight is F1 photographer Kym Illman and if you’ve been reading our posts this year, you’ve already seen his work. 

What’s it like to cover the sport of F1 behind the lens of a camera? We find out in this episode as Kym joined us all the way from Russia for this very special episode.

I’ll look forward to listening to the podcast, but my first thought was, Kym Ill-man? he must be part of the (in)famous North Korean dynasty?

Really enjoyed this podcast and would love to hear more like it! Maybe next time we could hear from someone in the pit crew or logistics? Always great to hear from a different perspective.

Wow… Messages on Hold is a really big company over here… advertising at the Aussie Rules all the time in Perth…


That was an interesting interview Todd, Kym is a hell of a persuasive character.
I’m looking forward to hearing more as the season progresses.
And seeing more of his photos.
