Prototype Silver Cloud

This was the first shoot with Classic Cars very own Quentin Wilson. It was a pleasure to work with Quentin and to get an insight into this special Rolls which he helped to gather more info on the car and subsequently acquire for its current owner. The prototype of which only 26 were created of this lengthened Cloud. With the original brochure we couldn’t let the opportunity pass without capturing a few images. We started at Ian’s (Cloud owner) business address as it had an interesting period façade but enough greenery and space in the carpark to shoot the details …

Capri Cover

Third cover in a row for Classic Cars Magazine marking the 50th anniversary of a British favourite…. As ever the group tracking is mainly for the cover shot, maybe a DPS and also to get a closing rear shot. A few examples of some of the images sent to the mag for the cover. We shot the pairings both on the outer track and also the inner handling road…. aka ‘the snake’ The pairs were in their Mk’s pairs. Enjoyed this shoot because it challenged you to look beyond the fact it was 6 Capri’s and top try and pick …

Accelerators Group Test

At the time of shooting this group test I didn’t know that this would be the middle of three covers in a row for Classic Cars Magazine. The group tracking for the opening DPS and cover we got straight on with. These cars have plenty of details around the bodywork so plenty of options to shoot from. Can’t remember if the corvette was selected in the brief for the lead car …. either way the higher ZR logo gave a nice lead into the other cars. Fairly tight group… gave instructions before setting off each lap and then just got …

Northumberland Greenlane

Its been along summer without any posts!!! I’ve a fair few mag articles that have been published so will try and get some of them up soon and work through them. These few images are from early on in spring time up in Northumberland. Starting at Berwick then on through to Corbridge (I think!) … we took two days in travelling down the many Greenlanes. They eventually made up two Greenlane entries in two consecutive Land Rover Owner International mags. The day was warm for spring, the breeze was cool off the North Sea, I miss the sea living equal …

A Couple of Rowan Atkinson’s rides…

Before you all think I spent a day driving around in a green mini with Mr Bean unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be. Although that would be a shoot worth waiting for this was to shoot a couple of cars from the private collection from Mr Atkinson for Classic Cars. The day started of crisp and clear which boded well… However the weather had other ideas. I remember calling the mag office and they said they had clear blue skies where as we had patches of thick fog… nice :/ We set to with the details as the cars had …

Lamborghini Countach – Epic Restoration

Its not everyday you turn up to a garage which has 4 Miura’s, 2 Countach and a few other original Lamborghini’s around the shop…. well we are only a few miles from the Lamborghini factory…. In the current issue of Classic Cars Magazine, this was another European quick trip to grab images then back again. The guy who owned the shop was the son of an ex Lamborghini employee of some 30 years. You quickly feel the passion of the people around here that it was almost a family ‘business’, not this shop as it was but working in the …

Skyline GT

Its a small world… This Skyline I saw back in Feb this year at London Excel for the London Classic Car Show. A great looking car and sounded not too shabby as well… It was back to the North East for this ‘Epic Restoration’ for Classic Cars Mag. As all the other Epic Restoration shoots, (XJ220, Lea Francis Sport) its fairly image light with the main opening DPS image as a static image within the workshop / garage. A few units beside each other with this body shop unit the only space we could use… One main studio light to …

Covers in 2015 …

Well 2015 has been a good n as far as my automotive work goes. Excluding the current cover for Jan 2016 (Morris Mini) I’ve had 8 covers this year for Practical Classics, Landrover Monthly, the launch of Modern Classics and American Car Magazine. Plenty of American cars going on there… Great to look back on and see what did make the covers. All in all I shot about 17 features this year for various magazines which you can see most of them if you have a look through my blog. There’s still about 8 features which will appear in issues …

LRM – May Cover

(Little late in posting this one…. but here goes) Trip down to the Norfolk north coast was in order to shoot the 3 soft top Land Rovers to mark the start of summer… The sky was blue, the sun was out but…. while waiting for the vehicles to arrive the clouds came in slowly which was not the best to try and show the start of summer. To catch what was let of the sun and blue sky we got straight on to shoot the cover. The first bay we got moved on which didn’t help the cause. We eventually …

Spa Classic 2015

Like Nurburg 24hr last weekend Spa Classic was again for the same client. Distinguished.Company deal with ‘Travel – Rail – Motor – Sail – Events’ …. I’ve been asked to capture various motoring events around Europe in order to have a portfolio of images with a certain style and feel that will help build their brand. This was my first time at Spa Classic… (2nd visit in as many weeks to Spa!… the Ardennes Rally will be blogged about later). Anyway this was a fantastic event and didn’t fail to deliver on atmosphere, variety of cars, noise and a lot …
