Difting in a 90…

A still winters bright morning I headed back on the way to the homeland to the North East and to Teeside Autodrome to shoot an extreme ninety for Landrover Owner International. While an open drifting session was taking place on the track we had permission to camp in an inner section of the track which wasn’t in use. Most of the shoot was done on these three corners. The sky was blue, the sun was low and seemingly more bright and intense than our fair shores see. I shot a few images on a corner and still wasn’t happy so …

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 …

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 …

Got to be seen to be believed…

This was the 2nd LRO (landrover Owner International) magazine shoot in as many days within less than a mile from each other. Not only that but less than 30mins from me…. happy days. This one certainly ticks the box for “really!”, “That’s mental!”…. you can add your own as well. All I was told was that it was a landrover on tracks… didn’t surprise me to hear that but to see it, you’d expect Fred Dibner behind the wheel stoking up the steam engine in order to reach its full top speed. After saying that a steam engine would probably …

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 …

Series 1 Landrover Resto

A quick article for Landrover Owner International which we documented that saw a 1st time restoration project. This was at the time I shot it the nearest magazine shoot to me…which was a nice change. We ended up doing the tracking shots about 2 miles from my house, as that was the only roads I knew well enough that would be quiet enough to hopefully get some images. For me I was happy with the results from these tracking shots. A bit of post work to give them something as the day was damp, foggy and really flat. I can’t …
