A law student at Copenhagen University, when he began taking photos at Formula 1 races, Peter established the Grand Prix Photo company after he graduated and has since attended nearly 700 GPs.
Today, he not only takes photos but writes and commentates. His company covers every GP and, with contacts all over the world, can supply photos from almost any motor race.
In addition to current photography, the Grand Prix Photo archive is one of the biggest in the world, Peter having acquired the work of a number of F1 photographers, notably Italian photo-journalist Giancarlo Cevenini and France’s Dominique Leroy, plus a portion of Nigel Snowdon’s collection.
Grand Prix Photo has more than 25,000 photos on its website and millions more
in its offices, which are decorated with a Tyrrell 021, which Peter acquired from Ken Tyrrell.
Peter is a member of the FIA Media Working Group.
