PORTRAITS…..Leena Gade at Somerset House, London

By julietlemon June 15 2016 - 03.06 PM


With the world famous Le Mans 24 hour race just a few days away I thought it very fitting to share these beautiful portrait images from a recent shoot with the motor sport legend, Audi Race Engineer, Leena Gade.


I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Leena in the World Endurance Championships at circuits in the USA, Belgium, France and Germany over the past few years so it was lovely to rendezvous with her on home soil.


Usually clad in a crisp,  white Audi shirt or red and black Audi fireproof race suit, surrounded by mechanics and racing drivers, it was a welcome pleasure to be away from the circuit without a car in sight!  Somerset House was the setting for this shoot, a location that has so many wonderful photography spots.


The brief for the shoot was for natural photos without anything motor sport related in the images, which I hope you agree we achieved.


Since my last London portrait photo shoot with her, she won Le Mans back in 2014 which added to the 2011 and 2012 victories making  her the first female race engineer to win the Le Mans 24 Hours three times.  It was wonderful to see her success recognised earlier on this year when she was presented with a trophy by the British Women Racing Drivers’ Club (BWRDC), honouring her commitment to motorsport and her consistently high achievements and dedication – congratulations Leena!


Leena is currently in Le Mans at the circuit with the rest of the team and  busy with the final preparations before Saturday’s big race which starts at 2pm BST


So if you do see any of 24 hours of incredible racing coverage on TV do keep an eye out for her and give a big cheer for her Audi car number 7.


I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Leena, her drivers Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer, along with all the mechanics and the rest of the team a safe and super-successful 24 hour race – GO CAR NUMBER 7!!!
