Super Car Photography

MIKE VALENTE, a leading car photographer in the UK, held Coventry University’s 198th Coventry Conversation on the 14th of January 2010. He gave the 21st century Digital-Camera-using-folk an insight into the days of the film camera.

Mike, who became a photographer by accident, said: “I have been taking pictures for as long as I can physically remember”.
