‘Reader Resto’ shoot makes Cover

My first shoot for Practical Classic magazine was a little MG Midget restoration based only 20 mins away… #Happydays! The day was booked were all three parties involved were available… With the weather being the best day of a bad looking bunch on the weather sites. At best we were looking for no rain and true enough it was dry. Unfortunately we were left with a flat white sky… the kind that I don’t like… the kind I don’t like to shoot. I much prefer rain clouds that have some definition in them… Anyway we set off to capturing the …

WEC @ Silverstone

Silverstone held the WEC over the weekend just gone. I’ve got to admit I’m not that clued up on all the different classes that compete in the World Endurance Champoinship but I like the atmosphere and ‘goings on’ behind the scenes. The weather was on the chilly side but dry…which was a good start. We had a walked past ‘The Loop’ and took a few of the cars that were already out on the track before heading to the main area just behind the International Pit Straight. For me all the engines sounded similar until the Aston Martins came around. …

Morgan Motor Company … Factory life in 1999

Think this formed part of my photography degree work…back in the day. Don’t think these images have ever gone out of date due to the nature of the Malvern factory and Morgan Moror Co. I was there for a couple of days with my old medium format film camera with B&W film (plus I took about 20 images on colour film) just capturing the life and goings on in the factory as I saw it. I love the power of photography and capturing a moment that is then recorded for history. The older the images get the more captivating they …

The Dodge & Plymouth make it to the cover…

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 …

Have you ever driven blindfolded?

I’m sure the most of us have not driven blind folded but for a recent shoot, I was asked to document a world record for a blind driver. Miles-Hilton Barber lost his sight in his 20’s but for this Zimbabwean it has not held him back. He is a motivational speaker and international adventurer with a list of achievements and records that a sighted person could only dream of. This record was to set the fastest speed whilst driving a Morgan three wheeler. Aided by his sighted co-pilot Colin Terry of ‘3 Wheel Drive’ Miles reached a speed of over …
