Lara Platman – A Mission With A Vision

Lara Platman
Lara’s very own 1964 Series 2A Land Rover, called ‘Big Red’

Lara Platman is a trail blazing woman who founded two fascinating sites called Photofeature and Gearstick & Clutchbag.

This entrepreneurial lady has more strings to her bow than Errol Flynn, including a motor racing licence, bike licence and even restored her very own 1964 Series 2A Land Rover, called ‘Big Red’.

In her own words
“I am happy shooting in pit lanes, theatre stages and behind the scenes on film sets.”

The feed below is from two great sites, where the high speed shutter never stops chattering, causing everyone to raise both smiles and eyebrows in synergy.
