Spitfire Mk2

Well nearly a year has past since shooting this restoration project for Practical Classics. As far as I remember the weather was touch and go and rain either side of this day… Again local (as in less than 20miles from my home) so happy days all round for this one. The rest opener images could be the garage shot or a tracking shot. We started as ever with the garage shot due to lights being set up and the most time consuming set up of the images. Four lights used to get the images below lit. Because of the post …

Frazer Nash Restoration

Another shoot for Classic & Sports Car, a little nearer to home and another restoration. Your off to photograph a ‘Frazer Nash’…. My first reaction once off the phone was to Google ‘Frazer Nash’, as I’d never heard of one…. A great restoration and pleasure to photograph a real classic vehicle. After shooting the Riley as neither restoration article the format was in the same vain. We started off grabbing some statics and owner shots and found a small sailing club willing to allow us access to its location on the edge of a reservoir. The slip ramp down to …

Lamborghini Countach – Epic Restoration

Its not everyday you turn up to a garage which has 4 Miura’s, 2 Countach and a few other original Lamborghini’s around the shop…. well we are only a few miles from the Lamborghini factory…. In the current issue of Classic Cars Magazine, this was another European quick trip to grab images then back again. The guy who owned the shop was the son of an ex Lamborghini employee of some 30 years. You quickly feel the passion of the people around here that it was almost a family ‘business’, not this shop as it was but working in the …

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 …

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 …
