Roger Lane came into photography through motor racing with sponsorship from Agfa Gevaert in the late 1960's. His images were subsequently used in magazines, books and promotional media. In 2009 a selection of his classic motor racing images are to be published in a book Out of the Shadows (Halsgrove). Photographing and writing about gardens has long been another interest, and Roger has produced a number of magazine features with a particular interest in France and the landscapes of the French Impressionists. He works from his home in Poole.
