Grip & Slide was founded in 2017 with the aim of bringing beautiful automotive media and stories to enthusiasts the world over. There’s always something interesting happening, be it in your local neighbourhood or on the larger scale. We’re an ever-growing collective of photographers, writers and designers set to capture every inspiring moment we come across, and share it with as many people as we possibly can.

LAURIE SOUTHERN

EDITOR IN CHIEF

Laurie Southern picked up a camera for the first time as a young boy and hasn’t been more than 6 feet from one ever since. In late 2016, the desire to share the photographs he captured with a wider audience became ever stronger, and the idea of Grip & Slide became a reality. Every single photo he takes pushes him one step further to uncovering the most captivating stories to be found.

TOM WARHAM

CO-FOUNDER

Tom Warham has long mixed a passion for cars with his background in Design and Digital Media. Through his hard work behind the scenes, he continues to support Grip & Slide to improve the visual side of the brand, both on the screen and off. Without Tomm making a mess every now and again, none of what we do would ever be possible.

JOSH JUDD

PHOTOGRAPHER AND WRITER

Josh Judd has long held a passion for cars and the self expression that comes with them. Having been introduced to the joy they bring from a young age, the culture quickly enveloped him. It’s through the click of a shutter and the thump of a key that he chooses to share his findings with the world.

TOM TAYLOR

PHOTOGRAPHER AND WRITER

Hailing from the Eastern side of the Pennines, Tom Taylor heads up Grip & Slide’s first expansion to find and capture automotive stories from further afield. His passion for the car and the camera come together in perfect harmony, as he draws inspiration from all aspects of petrol-fuelled ventures.
