Hi Ho Savannah Lining – BTS on a CGI shoot

Hi Ho Savannah Lining – BTS on a CGI shoot

If you’ve ever thought that photography for CGI is done with a single shot my latest ‘adventure’ will show you otherwise. This week I’ve been shooting the backgrounds and HDRs for a top secret car that is not even off the production line yet! It may seem a little premature but those of you who […]

From Fame to Forsaken, the Car that Gets Everywhere

From Fame to Forsaken, the Car that Gets Everywhere

I’ve been working with Mitsubishi very recently, this time shooting the Mirage. You’ll see from the pics that it’s a chirpy looking car that comes in a rainbow of colours. The brief was to shoot it in action in the city to showcase how nippy it can be. The ideal car from getting from A […]

From City to Country with a Lake In-between – Take Two

From City to Country with a Lake In-between – Take Two

Every car I shoot has its own USP. It’s either great as a nippy city car, excellent on long winding roads “Italian Job” style or capable of climbing the most hostile landscapes in the middle of the Moors. The car usually gives me an idea of where the shoot will take place. If it’s urban, […]

Want a Bit of the White Stuff?

Want a Bit of the White Stuff?

Anyone that’s complained that our winter hasn’t been white enough needs to go to the top of a hill in the middle of the country on a windy day. I’m not going to complain too much as I’ve seen what winter’s done to the homes of my friends in the South, and we’d probably prefer […]

Back on the Road, Further North I Go

Back on the Road, Further North I Go

I must have got a taste for the wet and the cold on the North Sea as no sooner had my sea legs got used to dry land, was I off again a few days before Christmas. This time I decided to treat myself, by staying firmly on the ground. It didn’t stop me getting […]

It’s Wet Up North (and cold, and freezing and life threatening!)

It’s Wet Up North (and cold, and freezing and life threatening!)

You’ll remember quite some months ago I had a few days on a BOSIET course where I was thrown into a range of real life situations, each one involving water. That course was to prepare me for a spot of photography on the high seas, an event that took place in December, and probably the […]

Lights, Camera, Time-lapse – Hello Yellow MG3

I’ve just finished a pretty intensive gig with an MG with multiple personalities. Just to give you a scope of the project from design data to end imagery: – Shoot 5 backplates and light domes then composite CGI cars into them. – Configurator combinations comprising: 10 colours, 10 graphic packs, 4 trim levels, 3 angles, […]

The Environmental Impact of Snow in this Summer Weather

The Environmental Impact of Snow in this Summer Weather

I’ve always had a bit of a love hate relationship with snow. Just like every other driver and photographer does. It can produce some great images and give an extra challenge to a drive but it can also be a pain in the neck for everyday activity. Winter sports are obviously on my Love list […]

Size Doesn’t Matter

Size Doesn’t Matter

Since the nineties I’ve been championing the rig as it’s been the perfect accessory for creating the motion shots I want. As you probably know it takes away all human error by steadying the camera, moving ever so slowly, so the full glory of the car is captured, while the scenery blurs the way it […]

Giving Cars Some Stick Since the Nineties

Giving Cars Some Stick Since the Nineties

Since the nineties I’ve had one piece of kit that has helped me capture exactly what I need for clients such as Bentley, Peugeot and Subaru. To the passer by this kit looks like an extendable thick stick, something fire-fighters might use to rescue a cat from a tree, but to me, it’s a trusty […]
