Super Saloons Cover Shoot

Its taken me too long to write a few lines about this cover shoot down in Longcross….. Back in July it was in the middle of the fantastic summer we had and we had 5 classic saloons to shoot for a cover for Classic Cars.

The image below is the small group of 4 for the cut out…. Tried a few different angles and focal …

Clever Money Cars – Modern Classics

A fairly local job for me in this months issue of Modern Classics. The shoot location based in Harrogate and near Bolton Abbey on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
