Ian Wright was born in southern England and with an obsession for all things on four wheels. After racing radio-controlled cars as a child, he learned to drive the real thing the moment he could see over the steering wheel. While road cars are his main love, Ian’s first vehicle was a Land Rover, and he’s still just as happy driving down dirt trails as he is on paved roads and tracks. Ian has now lived in the US for over ten years and embraced American car culture as his own.
After remarkably brief careers as a mechanic and then a driving instructor, Ian spent a decade working in media production. Then, after a break to become a firearms instructor in Southern California, the automotive world beckoned again, and he started working as a freelancer. As of 2015, he has been exclusively photographing and writing about cars from his home in California.
