Enjoyed shooting this for American Car magazine back in the end of last summer, mainly cos the location made it for me. An old unit that was previously used as a garage which was sat vacant while the new tenants moved in….happy days. (below are a few rece photos I took before the shoot)
(Reflections…a great way of making a subject ‘belong’ in its surroundings. It dried out before the shoot so that idea went by the wayside)
(couldn’t ask for a better ‘urban’ location)
(looking all around for different angles)
I suppose a major part of my style comes from my first job in a press agency after finishing my degree in photography. Very much so an editorial, photo-journalistic style. Always trying to tell a story in my images be it stand alone or in a body of work.
So I try and give as much thought to the location as I do to capture the subject….which here, were the Dodge and Plymouth. So to have an indoor as well as the outdoor area all in the same location behind some big red shutter doors was a great find.
Having two cars to shoot, funnily enough nearly doubles the amount of images you capture. We only had a short amount of time on this one and just managed to get a rig shot in…. It could have made the cover shot but who knows next time.
Hope you have a good weekend.
