Hans G. LehmannHans Georg Lehmann (born 1939, in Dessau, Germany) is a retired German photographer who is noted for his spy shots of prototype automobiles whilst they undergo testing stages, frequenting in locations where test sessions are likely to occur. These photographs regularly appear in automobile magazines.
As a result of his success, a number of photographers have followed his example. Because of this, a number of major car manufacturers developed their own testing facilities to prevent people from taking photographs of their secretive prototypes and pre-production cars.
His nickname in the industry amongst others is Handy Hans, carparazzo, car spy, prototype hunter and is widely regarded as a pioneer of the car spy photography and the best known of them all.
Since his retirement in 2008, he continued to run his photo syndication company. Provided by Wikipedia
