It’s been a while. I’ve been through a complete nightmare of a house move, I’ve been without a solid internet connection for nearly 4 months (1st world problems, I know) and now I have an absolute TONNE of photos to get through from the tail end of last year. I thought as a bit of a return to the internet I would give a run down of some of my favourite frames from 2013 over a couple of posts. Here are just a few of my favourite car shots from various projects. Some are personal and some are from my new found position on the SlamMedia team. We’ll start with number 1.
1 - VW Karmann Ghia - I saw this whilst I was on a trip to London for my Girlfriend’s birthday. It was parked up along a row of houses on the outskirts of Covent Garden. Its shiny black and chrome exterior revealed all of it’s little dents and scratches from years passed but it still sat looking pretty and really stood out against all of the Evoque’s and Mondeo’s.
2 - Datsun 280c - This car really stood out for me at the Modified Nationals show. Amongst all of the tricked out modern cars this had been stylishly converted into a low riding classic. As we walked past we caught this shot just as it it was putting on a little show of it’s own.
3 - Sarj’s Yaris - I co-shot shot this little Yaris with Cameron for SlamMedia back in October. Whilst searching for a location we came across the underpass that I had previously used for a band shoot, with a little bit of detouring we managed to get the car in there. Autumn was in full swing and we got some great results that made their way onto the feature where you can learn a lot more about all the effort that went into this build.
4 - Audi S3 - Another shoot for SlamMedia, this S3 was completely kitted out with air suspension and looked perfect wherever it went. We used a small quiet road for the shoot, nothing over the top, we let the car do all of the work here.
5 - Paul’s Mini - Paul’s greatest purchase of the year in my opinion. We travelled all the way down to Bognor Regis for this beauty and I followed it all the way back home again after one small breakdown and about 6 petrol stops. I cant wait to spend some more time with this little car next summer, I hear there are big plans in the works. This was shot on a quiet secluded beach not far from Skegness during our epic heat wave.
For more check out my photoblog and my site which should be receiving more regular attention. I’ll be updating them both with various shoots as and when I get to them.
