Spacesuit Media has signed a distribution deal with e-Formel.de. The partnership will see the German specialist Formula E platform gain access to Spacesuit Media imagery for editorial purposes, in a similar way to the existing partnership with Current E.
“I am elated to be able to work together with the boys and girls at Spacesuit Media,” says Timo Pape, founder of e-Formel.de. “We first met during preseason testing in Donington 2014. While sharing the same passion for the sport, both of our websites took an extraordinary turn in the world of Formula E. All the more pleasant it is for us to continue working hand in hand with Spacesuit. I’m thrilled we now can rely on the most appealing Formula E pictures available worldwide.”
“We’re delighted to be able to support the fast-growing worldwide interest in FIA Formula E with this new partnership,” says Ross Ringham, director at Spacesuit Media. “Our photographers are some of the most artistic and imaginative in the business – and we’ve been covering Formula E since the very beginning. We’ve supplied imagery to every team on the grid in that time. The launch of our purpose-built public imagery site Spacesuit Collections (spacesuitcollections.com) in 2017 means it is now far easier for reputable media sources to browse our catalogue of inspirational imagery. We’ve always been particularly impressed with the editorial rigour of e-Formel.de – both with the team’s long-term commitment to Formula E and habit of breaking big stories – so we’re very excited to support German racing fans through this productive new partnership built on our intimate access to the sport.”
Spacesuit Media is a photographic collective, headquartered in the UK but with a network of artists stretching across the UK, USA, France and Italy. The company’s award-winning photographers are led by artistic director Shivraj Gohil. Previous clients include BMW, Volvo, McLaren, Renault, Andretti, the Daily Telegraph, GQ and Esquire magazines and many others.
In Formula E, Spacesuit has supplied imagery to every team on the grid and has been the photographic supplier of Mahindra Racing since the very first race. Thousands of images can be browsed at the company’s specialist automotive and motorsport stock imagery site, Spacesuit Collections (spacesuitcollections.com).
e.Formel.de was launched in 2014 and is based in Hamburg. The German0-language media site now boasts one million page views annually.
The new partnership will commence with the forthcoming race in Marrakesh.
