retouching

Today, in automotive photography, retouching has the power to make a great image an exceptional one. GFWilliams saw this early on, using Photoshop to elevate each project beyond mere photography to a form of visual art.

But he doesn't just retouch his own work. George collaborates with agencies and photographers alike, offering a full range of retouching services. From basic cleanup to complex image construction, he crafts images that hit the mark - authentic, creative, and perfectly tailored to the brief.

Photography kit

In a fast-evolving field, GFWilliams doesn't compromise on equipment. His current arsenal features Nikon's advanced Z9 and Z7 cameras, coupled with high-quality Z lenses, ensuring each shot meets his exacting standards.

For capturing cars in action, George utilises the Movmax shock absorption rig. This eliminates the need for precarious setups, offering both safety and quality. He also has a 6-meter carbon fiber rig for those standout rig shots.

In terms of lighting, George uses Profoto flash kits, complemented by colored LED tubes for night or studio photography. This blend of tech and craftsmanship delivers images that do more than showcase vehicles - they tell stories.

A passion for cars

From an early age, GFWilliams has nurtured a profound passion for cars.

His previous ownership of a custom Caterham 7 was notable, but he is currently known for 'Hell Slow', his custom purple Lotus Exige.

In short, 'Hell Slow' serves as a tangible example of George's longstanding commitment to the automotive world, blending both personal aesthetic and mechanical enhancement. You can discover the full extent of this unique build below.
