Meet Our Automotive Photographers (and Founder)

At Limited100 we work in partnership with a carefully selected group of the most highly-skilled, award winning automotive photographers. Our curators hand-pick every artwork we offer in order to provide you with an unmatched selection of limited edition automotive prints.

 

Paul Ward - Head Photographer and Curator

Paul Ward has been a professional photographer for over twenty years now and recently won his category at the British Photography Awards 2020. Over the years his work has been published in many books and magazines both in the UK and internationally and his architectural images currently adorn the walls aboard Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2. Paul’s passion for cars started when he bought his first Austin Mini almost 30 years ago and ever since then he has been obsessed with both classic cars and modern supercars, so, as an image-maker, it’s not surprising that automobile photography has become a passion of his too.

 

Rick Noël - Contributing Photographer

An established professional automotive photographer with over 10 years' experience, Rick Noël works in and alongside motorsport and automotive brands. Based in a village on the border of Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire with good access to many circuits and motoring facilities, including Silverstone, Millbrook Proving Ground and Bedford Autodrome, Rick specialises in automotive, motorsport and motoring events coverage.

  

João Meneses - Contributing Photographer

João Meneses is a young self-taught automotive photographer who, from a tender age, developed a unique passion and a very strong connection with photography and the world of cars, influenced by his dad. Shortly after he concluded his professional qualification in the health sector (physiotherapy), suddenly the interest of dedicating his time entirely to photography emerged. João bought his first camera and embraced the challenge of self-learning the basics, leading to an evolution from an amateur to a professional freelance photographer.

Today, after 4 years of a lot of dreaming, a lot of hard work, and persistence, João has accumulated partnerships with some of the most prestigious brands in the automotive world, such as Ferrari Portugal, Aston Martin Portugal, Maserati Iberia; has participated in world-renowned events since 2014 and throughout the years, including the 4H European Le Mans Series, the International GT Open, the Algarve Classic Festival, among others. João is currently the photographer of the famous annual event Cars and Coffee, in Portugal, and is looking forward to continuing to become increasingly known internationally.

 

Simon Wright - Founder and Curator

Nottingham-based petrolhead Simon Wright launched Limited100 in March 2020 - an online store selling made-to-order limited run automotive prints, with a core purpose of supporting independent automotive photographers.
Simon added: "With just over one million of the UK’s self-employed workers (22%) at risk of being affected by lockdown, and motoring events cancelled throughout the pandemic outbreak, independent automotive photographers have been hit particularly hard and, as a result, are having to diversify and introduce digital channels to generate revenue.
"A seasoned car enthusiast, I was looking for some automotive art for my first home but struggled to find anything that I liked. It was at this point I decided to start working with automotive photographers to create our own range of bespoke, handcrafted wall art.
"In the early days of lockdown, I hatched a plan to capitalise on the UK’s six million car enthusiasts and £13.5bn homewares market, developing an e-commerce website that sells photographic art of some of the world’s most iconic cars at the latest at prestigious events.
Simon concluded: “Our aim is to capture the essence of what makes some special cars iconic. We work exclusively with highly-skilled, award-winning photographers to bring petrolheads the most striking automotive images imaginable.
"Whether enthusiasts are into modern hypercars, vintage racecars or just classic cars in general, Limited100 has the perfect picture. Our carefully selected range of limited-edition prints are handcrafted in Britain from sustainable, museum-quality materials. We work with a team of highly skilled printers and framers who create everything by hand, to exacting standards. Our prints are available in a range of formats and we guarantee that we will only ever produce one hundred of each image.”
