A year of Automotive photography in review
Every new year I sit down and review my hi-lights from the previous year. 2017 has been great year, with amazing opportunities, experiences and of course some great cars. So join me as I look back through some of the best bits of my year of automotive photography.
Lets start with this image, photographed for CAR magazine. The new 308 GTi vs a Civic Type R. Photographed in a multi-storey, carpark to avoid the horrid winter conditions.
February saw a frosty morning photographing the Audi S4 Avant Long termer for PistonHeads. Perfect photographers car; big boot, loads of grunt and no compromise on comfort and ride. Gorgeous sunny conditions to photograph in.
A real highlight this one, a twin test, Panamera Turbo vs RS7 what a pair! Insane performance from two heavyweights.
Next up a trip to Prodrive HQ, so many awesome cars here, one of the highlights was this Vulcan.
Then to Central London to photograph CAR magazines new long termer; the Porsche Macan.
Slightly less glamorous, another multi-storey shooting Chris Chilton in some truly miserable weather!
This was one of those days where I had to pinch myself. V8s galore, a whole day in the Northamptonshire countryside photographing and playing with some super cool V8s with PistonHeads.
Oh and we had a mustang… would be rude not to!
Something a little different this time - A trip to West Surrey Racing with BMW Car club to photograph and interview Dick Bennetts.
Next up a trip to the seaside with this Volvo V90 to photograph it for CAR magazine.
The Silverstone Classic, straying away from the track action I focused a lot of my day in the paddock documenting the atmosphere surrounding the drivers and teams. This driver was waiting to head out for his first race of the day, keeping cool in the pre race build up.
Next up a road trip! To Scotland with the PistonHeads Skoda Superb Sportline. Lots of changeable weather conditions and some epic scenery. Scotland is a beautiful country with some amazing driving roads and stunning views. Its the perfect place to explore and to experience in a car.
Some work for Drivetribe next, documenting GTI International at Rockingham.
A private shoot for a client - his gorgeous V12 Vantage with London in the background.
Peugeot 3008 shot for CAR magazine. The glorious weather helped to make this a nice easy shoot with some lovely colours and light.
Another big highlight for me. The VXR8 photographed at sunrise for PistonHeads in the pitlane at Donnington.
And finally CAR magazine Golf GTE longtermer photographed on a freezing cold airfield in Oxfordshire. Thanks for reading, I have lots of exciting projects & shoots lined up for 2018 so stay tuned!
