Born in Llandybie, and after Art College courses in Graphics and Photography, Maurice started his career in 1972 as staff photographer for Motorsport and Motoring News magazines in London. He covered all kinds of motorsports from Formula One Grand Prix to sports cars to rallying before deciding to concentrate on the WRC. This led to a career spanning 45 years which involved travelling to events worldwide in all climates from tropical to arctic. Maurice went freelance in 1987.
