Best of 2017

This is the post I look forward to creating each year, the 2017 Highlights. The reason why I enjoy this so much is because it is a selection of my favourite images i’ve taken throughout the year which isn’t limited by genre. Quite often as a commercial photographer you never get to choose your favourite image from a shoot as your favourite may not meet the vision of the intended purpose.

I have selected a few images from across various photoshoots this year and hope you enjoy the alternative look at my work.

A lot has changed since last year, just over 2 months ago I launched a new company “Scorpion Media”, this was brought about by a local need of my clients for Web Design, Graphic Design and Print services. Since offering these services I am now kept very busy and will be looking at expanding next year, keeping my eye out for fresh talent. This is working out great for me as the projects also facilitate the photography which is the part I enjoy doing the most.

For next year I plan to shoot more vehicles of today as well as all the classics I shoot, I plan to combine still photography with CGI and will try my hardest to break into large advertising projects globally.

My personal goals will be to finally move into my home, I have been saving hard with my fiancee and hopefully 2018 will be the year I get the key to my own home. Once this is achieved I think it is about time I married my fiancee who I have been with for 7 years now. I wish everyone the best for 2018 and looking forward to seeing and working with you again.


Sierra 2.0GLS Sleeper – Street Machine Oct ’17

Some days you just wake up and end up doing things you didn’t expect to. On this day I had actually planned to photographed 2 Austin Devons which will appear next year in Street Machine Magazine. The Devon’s brought along Mike Perrot who owns this Sierra sleeper, after a quick look around it I knew it would be suitable for Street Machine and so gave Dave a call. He agreed it would be perfect so I photographed it straight after the Devons. This is a 1992 2.0l GLS which Mike turned into a V8 monster. Published in the October 2017 issue of Street Machine.


Tristan’s BMW 545i e60

When I was working on the filming and stills production of the first RWB Porsche 911 build I met Tristan. He owned this stunning BMW 545i e60 which had been wrapped in matt gold. Set off with the Yellow rims I knew at some point I must shoot this car. I heard that he was making a trip down this way to see family, as he is based in Scotland and I am in Kent. We agreed to meet at a location close to Gatwick Airport and created these two rig shots and the composite with the Greenwich skyline.


Period-Perfect Pop 100E – CFM Dec ’17

It was the first show of the season back in March at the Detling show ground, it was cold, wet and windy as it is every year at that show. Hidden amongst a load of other cars, which were not Sidevalves or at least Fords with Mike’s beauty sitting there ever so proud. I couldn’t find Mike at the time so went over the the Ford Sidevalve Owners Club to see if they knew who the mystery car belonged to and why it wasn’t on their stand! Eventually we tracked down Mike who told me all about his story, I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity and arranged a photoshoot with him and his car or the December 2017 issue of Classic Ford Magazine. The location we chose due to the relation of it to his family history. I hope you enjoy this beautiful Pop as much as I have.


Factory Fresh Capri 2.0S – CFM Dec ’17

It was a scorcher of a June day when I met up with Andrew to photograph his beautiful 1979 Ford Capri 2.0s. Looking factory fresh with that deep gloss black it really stood out against the softness of the landscape. I took along with me Chloe Biddis who was my assistant for the day and she did an amazing job so thank you Chloe. The shoot was for the December 2017 issue of Classic Ford Magazine. I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed capturing the character of this heritage masterpiece.
