The Gadget Show – Cars, Cameras and a Hill Climb…

Last night Channel 5’s ‘The Gadget Show’ was on air, which we filmed a couple of weeks back with Jon Bentley and his team. A very good time was had by all, mixing up a couple of my favourite topics – cars and cameras. You probably already know ‘The Gadget Show’ – my kids never miss […]

This weekend’s 73rd Members Meeting held at Goodwood saw another spectacular visual feast for anyone with a passion for period motor racing. I took the opportunity to catch up with friends old & new over a freezing cold, but very entertaining couple of days. If you are not familiar with the event it is a pretty unique. It […]

All regular readers of this blog will know that first and foremost I’m an automotive photographer. That’s cars, trucks, motorbikes, in fact anything that has wheels and moves. So it should be no surprise then that I tend to socialise with like-minded image producers and artists who add an automotive colour to their work. Piers […]

With the New Year comes another season of historic racing events. I’ve mentioned Barrie “Whizzo” Williams and Shelsley Walsh in past blogs (even featuring Whizzo gunning up the hill on video), so this week I want to focus on another wonderful old racing car I shot last summer – the incredible 200HP V8 Darracq.

It’s nearing Christmas so I thought I’d start this week’s blog on a festive note: a visit to Santa’s grotto, or something equivalent. But while Santa’s workshop in Lapland has umpteen elves in pointy hats fussing over intricately crafted toy racing cars and wooden train sets, the one I visited has a team of engineering […]

In the clearing stands a Jaguar C-Type

Make yourself a coffee, sit back, relax. This week I’m deliberately over writing my blog because it’s about something very special – a C-Type Jaguar. Of all the cars I’ve shot over the years I have a particular soft spot for Jaguars. I’ve followed the historic Jag marque for many years and was asked to […]

Barrie “Whizzo” Williams and the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb

Much of my life has been focussed around shooting anything that has four wheels and drinks gallons of the black stuff. So as an enthusiastic petrol head I never ignore opportunities to shoot good looking cars – especially when they’re the vintage sports variety racing on my doorstep. Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb – the oldest […]
