This Cortina GT MKI I photographed back in March 2016 for Classic Ford Magazine, unfortunately the owner became uncontactable and so it was decided that it will form a Buyers Guide in the Summer 2017 edition. It is a truly stunning example and it was a fantastic shoot. See below the rest of the images from the set:
I met Tristan (TeamShakeBake) at the RWB Build last year at Profusion Customs. His Yellow BMW certainly stood out from the other cars in attendance and I knew at some point I really should photograph it. Having been approached by BMW Russia to bid on a photoshoot I decided it was about time I gave Tristan a call.
Turns out Tristan lives in Scotland, which is a really long drive from my home in Kent, but he said he was coming down soon to help his mum move… she lives in Nottingham which is still another 3 hour drive from me! Despite this we agreed to meet near Gatwick for a quick shoot last Saturday morning. Below are 3 of the images I have completed from the shoot so far:
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!
These old Granada’s are getting harder and harder to find since they become popular in the destruction derbies. This saloon is probably the most mint example I have come across and it hasn’t even been restored. Owned by Jon Roberts it is one of the first 100 to roll of the factory line, being sat garaged for over 30 years the mileage is pretty low too. This was photographed as a buyers guide for Classic Ford Magazine Dec ’16 issue, initially I didn’t think too much about the location as it was to be cut out and put onto a white background. Now I look at the original images I realise the background I shot it was actually perfect and wish I spent a bit more time composing it a bit more centrally. However to find out more grab a copy from the shots and enjoy the details below:
