2016 – My Best Year Yet


It's New Years Eve and I thought now would be a good time to look back at an amazing year of photography and experiences.  I couldn't put every shoot I did in due to embargoes and the fact there are just too many, so here are a selection of shots from throughout the year which I particularly enjoyed and which represent 2016 for me. We start off with a bit of snow. This was my trusty Mercedes Estate which later in the year I decided to sell, more on that later! First shoot was for Audi UK of an A3 Cabriolet.…

The #DullRoadtrip – Caterham to Croatia


The  #DullRoadtrip started as simply an idea with friends that we wanted to do a road trip and visit places we'd never been before. It was about exploring new areas, and creating amazing experiences. So first of all we decided that we would take the Caterham. Admittedly an awful car to do a road trip in, not much luggage space, noisy, cramped and no air conditioning. That wasn't enough to stop us though as we knew how amazing it would be when you got it on the right roads.  To make the trip as dull as possible I wanted to incorporate…

Twisting Fashion With Automotive in Scotland


I love when my clients allow me to get creative and take ideas from just a thought in my head all the way to reality.  I've worked with Twisted for a few years now and it's a really exciting company to be involved with.  Twisted take standard Land Rover Defenders and modify and upgrade them to create a much more usable, and of course much cooler vehicle. Key to this though is that the DNA of the Defender remains.   What I really love about Twisted though is that they do things differently to other people, the upgrades are often subtle…

A Big Year – Looking Back at 2015


It's New Years Eve and I'm looking back at the photos I've taken in 2015. This year has been by far the busiest year of my life and the number of amazing shoots I've done truly makes me thankful for the support of my clients, friends and followers and motivates me to push even harder in 2016! I haven't included absolutely every shoot from 2015 as this post would have been too long, but instead have tried to show as many shoots as possible while still keeping things interesting! Honda Civic Type R The first shoot of 2015 was in Malaga, shooting the yet…

A Month With A Hasselblad H5D-50


Most people don't seem to know what a "Hasselblad" is, but if you're a photographer it's something to get excited about. A Hasselblad is a Medium Format camera which produces exceptional quality photos.  This quality unfortunately doesn't come cheap with a list price having 5 figures in it.   I've got a very generous friend who owns a Hasselblad H5D-50 who kindly let me borrow the camera for just over a month to use as if it's my own and to take as many good photos with it as possible. Well I did my best and here's a little insight into what I…

Fashion Meets Automotive In Wales


I was insured on the Speedster for the first time just over a year ago, in that time I've always wanted to take the car to amazing scenery to shoot it.  This shoot was a long time coming, but I wanted it to be a bit more interesting than just a car in beautiful scenery. Being a personal shoot it was the ideal time to get a team to join me and turn it into a fashion meets automotive shoot! So the plan was to select a few locations and shoot Elle, our model, with the Speedster. The styling was done by…

Looking Back At A Year With A Hasselblad H4D-40


It's been nearly a year since Hasselblad lent me an H4D-40 with a 28mm lens and 80mm lens. I got off to a bit of a rocky start with it, it's not an easy camera to use compared to my Nikons but once I bonded with it I grew to absolutely love it. I now miss it. This is what my kit bag looked like for the year when I had it, Nikon D700 on the left, D800 in the middle and Hasselblad on the right. The Nikons were for quick shooting and action, the Hasselblad for when I have…

An Impromptu Mega Shoot In A Hangar


Just over a week ago I organised a shoot with some friends and they didn't disappoint with the cars they brought along. There were 2 Enzos, a Carrera GT, a Murciélago, a 12C, a 458, an SLS and 2 classic 911s.  The location was rather awesome, so thanks to Garaged.com for letting us into their new hangar at such last minute notice! All photos were taken with just natural light, the first three on the Hasselblad H4D-40 and the rest on my Nikon D800. I do think the Hasselblad was ahead for this shoot, giving me much more control with the shadows…

Vauxhall Astra Advert Shoot


In early October I did a shoot for Vauxhall. Today I got to see the result on a billboard!   The shoot was a bit of a challenge due to the weather. The Lake District in October meant rather unpredictable weather and the brief was to show the car in a nice setting. 3 different Astras ready for the shoot came in a rather large arctic ready to shoot.   This sums up the weather for a lot of the shoot. Amazing and dramatic views, but not what we wanted! Took us a while to nail down the final composition…
