Jeff Nield

Old Bike Australasia - - UNDER THE CHEQUERED FLAG -

New Zealand-born JEFF NIELD, who came to Aus­tralia in the late 1960s, passed away in late Novem­ber. A colour pho­to­graphic pro­ces­sor by trade, Nield found work with the John Smails’ Project Group, pho­tograph­ing Toy­ota models which were the group’s main PR client. He also branched into mo­tor sport as a free­lancer, sup­ply­ing shots from NSW cir­cuits such as Oran Park and Bathurst to Rac­ing Car News mag­a­zine. In the days when most mo­tor sport pho­tog­ra­phy was still in black and white due mainly to avail­able film speeds, Nield of­ten worked in colour. In the early ‘seven­ties he cov­ered events run by Vin­cent Te­soriero’s Force­field Pro­mo­tions, in­clud­ing the Mr Mo­tocross Se­ries, road rac­ing at Ama­roo Park and the Cas­trol Six Hour Race.
