Thank you for visiting my website
I’m Pete Lawrence and my passion for photography goes back to when I was eighteen years old, I would take myself off for the day in the beautiful hills and woodlands of the Surrey countryside and lose myself taking photographs. I had a Minolta camera (film then, of course) and would spend happy hours developing and printing my film and photos.
I would go to race day meets at Brands Hatch and other venues; was commissioned and given pit passes to cover certain races; I loved every moment of it!
Later, when I joined the Ambulance Service, the shift arrangement allowed me to take up a more professional role as I was asked to take photographs of training days for the Ambulance Service and the Fire Brigade; they would set up mock major accidents which was all extremely interesting and they made great pictures too. These were published in magazines associated with both services.
Since then I have continued to take pictures but kept them to myself as I was in a career that was IT based, however, the passion was still there so I decided to make more of my photography, started my website and was accepted by Photographic Agencies. I have since been commissioned for various shoots from landscapes to industrial.
It is now that I realize just how much I have learned over the years and how relevant it is to modern day digital media, although there is always much to learn and to enjoy with every new picture taken.
