Today I visited Brands Hatch to practice shooting a few panning images, haven’t done this type of shot for about 6 years as I usually use a rig but have to say they aren’t too bad. On Wednesday I plan to return under a media pass so can get closer and lower, struggled a little bit today with the weather. It was a wet day and there was barely any sun, the part of the track I was able to shoot from meant that the cars were mainly backlit which wasn’t ideal. See below for a few of the images:
American Car Magazine asked me if I would take a trip up to Herfordshire to photograph a 1966 Plymouth Satellite, it is completely out of my area but this kind of request seems to be becoming more often recently, I guess my images must be getting better 😉 Anyhow my assistant Dean and I went off to meet up with Rob Wells from Lewis racing to photography his super stock car, full steel this car is big and heavy but still manages to run 11s on the strip. It was a glorious day which resulted in some interesting tan lines. Enjoy:
For the January 2017 issue of Classic Ford Magazine I photographed Alex Eliott’s Blood Orange MK2 homebuilt Escort. Not being local to Peacehaven I decided to take the missus out with me for the day so that we could visit Brighton in the afternoon. On the way we kept our eyes out for potential locations and came across the old Lido, it is currently being restored but the back wall had been left open which fit in perfectly with the character of the car. It was certainly a fun shoot and well timed as it started raining heavily after we finished. Thanks Alex!
