A Legend Lives On

As ever a great to have a subject thats near to home …. this one is closer than the first cover shoot we did for Street Machine. This time was the 1967 Silhouette Camaro with the same paint work from the 60s, found by the current owner down in Wimbledon and brought to Yorkshire where it resides. With these shoots its predominately a rig shot that could be the only motion shot you get. Thankfully the owner found a great outbuilding near a local farm whose owners were typical Yorkshire folk and said carry on 🙂 …… happy days. The …

Camaro – ACM July Cover Shoot

Shot back in Sept 2014, I’m pleased it has made it to a cover. Looking for a suitable location in the middle of North Yorkshire was as ever the first stage for an ACM shoot. This particular location was an old Army camp with those buildings that can be described as oil barrels cut in half length ways and on its side. The air-field has long since gone and these buildings are the last remaining visual evidence of army activity within the area. Currently the buildings are used as pigsties…interesting to say the least. The owner was very accommodating but …

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 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 …
