Lightweight E-Type – one of ‘The Missing Six’

The ‘Special FT’ Lightweight E-types were originally built with new-style aluminium bodies in the sixties. 18 chassis were planned, but only 12 were built. Six chassis numbers assigned to Lightweights were […]

Geneva Fiesta Fever

It was great to be invited to film the aerial sequences for the Geneva Motor Show 2016 launch film of the Ford Fiesta ST200 a couple of weeks back. We spent a slightly grey & damp February day with a great team from Gaucho Productions, shooting footage of the ST200 with the drone. It wasn’t […]

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 […]

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. I […]

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.
