Camaro makes Cover

This was one of the most insane cars I’ve been in… up to 1000bhp…. and we went out in what Top Gear would describe as ‘VVW’ …Very Very Wet!!! The original location for this shoot (you can read about it here) was rained off on the day so Plan B came into play… We had to get something in the bag for this car as it was the 4th location that through one thing and another that we tried. Not the most inspiring of 60’s car parks but was the best of a bad situation. Getting the standard shots for …

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 …

The location was a wash out…..”do we have a Plan B”?

Well the shoot was booked for Sunday just gone after three other locations at the end of 2013 all pulled the plug a few days before the shoot date. Forecast for rain but still went ahead as this shoot was penciled in for a previous issue, we had to get something in the bag. The location was in the heart of Manchester…an old disused railway. Any weather would have done…apart from rain. There was a clear spell forecast but in the end it never came. Plan B… I had 20mins to spare before the car turned up on a low …

Next shoot for American Car mag this weekend…

Always like to have a rece for a shoot before hand to get a feel of the place.  Try and get a few angles sorted and plan as much as possible what order of shots are needed. Went a few weeks ago to have a look at this place. … For the record the car in the spotlight is a 1971 Camaro… Finding a location that fits the car for me is just as important as the angle of shot etc…. Urban, rough, gritty feel is what I’m hoping for.  The last shoot for thismag made Febs cover (which I’ll …

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 …
