The Awesome Classic Racing Photography of TJ Grewal
“Cars, and especially race cars, represent the perfect mix of art and function in my mind. The exterior design. The mechanicals. The sounds and smell. The sensation of speed. All of it draws me in.” – teej
Teej is a photographer after our own hearts. He has a life long love of classic cars, and is passionate about using and appreciating them in ways that do them justice, whether that’s behind the wheel, looking through a lens or walking the pits and paddock.
“It’s why I like to track my own cars whenever I get the chance to – vintage only – I like to know I can bring a car to its limits and enjoy it. But if I am at the track and not driving, then I have my camera in hand looking for something interesting.” – teej
His work reflects his passion. It’s vibrant and emotive, capturing the intricate interplay at work in race cars, balancing between power and beauty; development and aesthetic; perfect balance and raggedy-edge thrills. We love it.
He’s been kind enough to display some of his work with us here, and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with you. Enjoy, and make sure to head to his website, Facebook page and Instagram feed for more.
“Racecars are so beautifully simple in their intent: go fast. With my photography I try to keep that simplicity alive and capture cars in a way that the viewer can appreciate the details, or imagine the sounds, or what it would be like to be the driver.”
“I try to make sure that the sensation comes through in the photos – whether it’s feeling the earth drop at the corkscrew or the lateral forces going through a fast corner. I hope you enjoy!” – teej
