‘Behind the Camera’ – Porsche Boxster

If your like me with an inquisitive mind then my ‘Behind the Camera’ posts may be of interest…

Especially with my ‘JJP in motion’ shots I try and capture a few images with my phone showing the set up of the rig and camera. Just for the record I use a Carbon Fibre boom from (Car Camera Rig) as shown in these images.

Not just for the rig shots but anything that’s of interest while I’m on location I’ll post a few images…

The resulting image from the set up shown in the title image is below…. a cheeky Boxster at sunset…

I’ll post a few more of these ‘Behind the Camera’ shots when I’m out and about or when embargoed images from editorial shoots have been published.

Have a good weekend 🙂

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 post here shortly) but the location again played a major role in the feel of that shoot.

Another image for you from the rece for this weekend’s shoot…

I’ll try and post a few images this weekend…

Till then have a good n.

Autosport International – A few bits…

Sat 11th Jan found myself traveling early doors with a good friend down to the NEC. Not knowing what to expect as this was the first time at Autosport Int. Show.

After taking in the live event and having a laugh at the smart cars we headed off to what seemed like hall after hall of automotive life.

The best hospitality area IMO went to Caterham with its typically English feel 🙂 caterham loungeAlso on their stand is the best looking concept car I’ve seen for a while. The Aero Seven certainly grabs the attention but as ever I was looking at the details hence no image of the car its self. (If you want to see the car then follow this link

JJP_6043The other car that I wanted to see was the Bentley GT3 which I kept an eye on whilst it was in Abu Dhabi at the end of last year. It looked big in images but in ‘the flesh’ that is some car.

The last image I want to show you was PopBangColour a guy that looked like he was on the set of ‘Why Don’t You’… Great concept, great artist… great to see.
