Lee Blaidsell of El Segundo, California was a photographer. He was shooting SCTA racing before Hot Rod Magazine was founded, so when Robert Petersen needed photos for his new magazine in late 1947, Blaidsell helped out by providing photos. Lee shot the first six covers for the magazine. These photos were processes at the Alan Dean Studio at 9161 Sunset Boulevard. In 1948, Lee moved away, and Robert Petersen hired Eric Rickman to take photos for him.
