With 2016 drawing to a close, I thought it would be a good idea to look through all of my images from 2016 and select a few highlight points from the set. From photographing Peugeot hot hatches to a Ferrari 488 with everything else in between. So grab a coffee and take a browse through a year in pictures!
The first part of the year saw me photographing for PistonHeads, from a 400bhp Skoda Octavia to a pair of off roading heavyweights and finally the new Ford Mustang at Santa Pod, demonstrating its line lock feature brilliantly.
Next up I was at Blenheim Palace, photographing promotional images for the Bentley Drivers Club with a fantastic trio of Bentleys from all eras. Followed up by a trip to Bicester Heritage for a Sunday Scramble, I came across this gorgeous 911 basking in some spring sunshine.
I was contacted by a private owner in Yorkshire and was asked to photograph his pristine BMW M1 - a flash setup in his garage captured some lovely details. Then when the rain cleared we had to head out onto the moors for some more photos!
Personal projects are always important to try new ideas and experiment with techniques that could be used for client projects in the future. This Mini was photographed in a empty carpark and lit with flash to achieve the end result .
Some editorial work next, for CAR Magazine - The new Peugeot 308 GTi longterm test car photographed for the “Our cars” feature in the monthly magazine. Static images and some tracking photos to fill the page spread.
Next up, more PistonHeads assignments. First a Mercedes SL500 for a PH Heroes feature photographed in Nottinghamshire forest. Then next up the awesome Alfa Romeo 4C tweaked by Alfaworks and shot round the corner from their HQ. Tracking shots through a little section of forest gave some lovely results.
Another private client - a teal coloured GTR photographed in Bedfordshire. Finding new angles and working with flash to achieve some great results on a gloomy day.
Maybe the most exotic car I have photographed this year - The Ferrari F12 TDF, what an amazing car. I had a morning to shoot this F12 on location. One of my favourite shoots of the year!
Salon Privé was very wet this year - despite this people still flocked to this prestigious event. Some beautiful cars on display and well worth attending. Then another shoot for PistonHeads, the MX5 BBR GTi Super 200. A great modified MX5 with some great tweaks that improve on the already great standard car.
Another hi-light of the year was shooting the BMW i8 for CAR Magazine’s October issue. Such a cool car!
Another Magazine feature; this time, Autocar - the Ford Focus RS ann exhaust popping, 4 wheel drive 340bhp weapon. Photographed for the October issue. Now, double that horsepower figure and you have the Ferrari 488 Spider. Photographed for PistonHeads, we spent the day blasting around with the roof down. For pure enjoyment and speed you can’t beat this car!
A bit more serious now; the Skoda Superb estate photographed for CAR magazine’s November issue. Showing the size and practicality of this rather sensible car. Followed up by the cheeky, nippy Vauxhall Adam S photographed for CAR mag’s December issue.
And thats it! A busy year of cars, with a few more shoots left to be published its fair to say i’ve had a busy and varied year of shooting. 2017 projects are starting to take shape and I cannot wait to show you!
