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)

I suppose a major part of my style comes from my first job in a press agency after finishing my degree in photography. Very much so an editorial, photo-journalistic  style. Always trying to tell a story in my images be it stand alone or in a body of work.

So I try and give as much thought to the location as I do to capture the subject….which here, were the Dodge and Plymouth. So to have an indoor as well as the outdoor area all in the same location behind some big red shutter doors was a great find.

Having two cars to shoot, funnily enough nearly doubles the amount of images you capture. We only had a short amount of time on this one and just managed to get a rig shot in…. It could have made the cover shot but who knows next time.

‘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 🙂
