All in the detail…

When you work for yourself you work when the work comes in… sounds daft but is true, with me shooting a lot of automotive work I tend to find in the depths of winter my work quietens off due to the weather. So when a job comes in for late December it makes a good change. Shot this defender on New Years Eve only about 10 miles from home… To say it was chilly would be an understatement, up on the tops of the moors the wind is relentless and unobstructed. We had some sun which was fortunate and only …

In the Dales Green-laning

Its always nice to get into the Dales and mix business with pleasure. The 2nd green lane shoot for Landrover Owner International. Decided to get up there the night before so we could get going with out issue first thing in the morning. I’m really liking these jobs in the sense as its just using the bare minimum of kit. I take over the top really as you never know but really its just a wide, telephoto and the old 50mm and away you go. 3 defenders for the day and three dogs 🙂 The reason why I like these …

RAF Series 1 Resto

I’ve just written another quick blog on the x5 928s and mentioned that I’m seeing a lot of Porsche recently…. Well Land Rover is the other make I seem to have had a lot of to capture lately. Shot earlier this year with a few days of the Cuthbertson Shoot. Again this was shot for Land Rover International Magazine. An ex RAF landrover restored from the ground up. As ever the first task was to find a decent road to get some tracking shots taken… The weather was majority of the time fairly flat so had to make something of …

If Bowler made a Series 1….

This shoot was for LRO and it seems I’ve shot quite a number of Land Rovers recently. All of them being of some uniqueness and this one was no different. A series 1 that went a lot deeper than skin deep… Bowler Motorsport are the creators of this unique Series 1. The same people that created the Wildcat that turned Richard Hammond into a ‘Driving god’…(video here) have created a gem.   Before I write just a few things about the car specifically…. the location was pretty good as well. A test track of about 1mile around a lake that …

Which would you pick???

This shoot was for Land Rover Owner International Magazine. This shoot will ever been ingrained in my head, not for the side wind and rain atop the Yorkshire Dales which proved interesting but for the fact that I was just getting over two days of a sick bug and was still a little green… The joys of working for yourself ; ) We started off with some statics and getting a few detailed images to go with this specific article… Not a green-lane article or an individual piece but this was asking the question which of these two would you …

Want one! ……the ultimate 101

Shot this for Land Rover Owner International last October I think back in the North East… I’m still lost for words when writing this to express what I felt when I first saw this 101. Didn’t know much about the 101 until this shoot, but remember seeing them in their native MOD format when growing up. This started out and was deployed in various conflicts for the Army as an ambulance. I think just the size of it, quality of engineering, attention to detail etc etc… so much to look at, so much thought went into it… you could just …
