Review – Phottix Raja 30x140cm Stripbox

We tend to settle into fairly stable, long term relationships with our equipment. Light modifiers being no exception. I still have some modifiers from over ten years ago, and they’re fine for what they’re used for. But now and again, some small incident makes you reassess your gear, or forces you to replace it.

Simple Product Setup Using Two Speedlights

So, we are in the middle of CorVid-19 lockdown. The kids are running riot, and I’m all out of duct tape. The wallpaper hasn’t changed in the last hour, and my slippers are wearing thin from all the pacing up and down. Talking of wearing thin, my Mrs.’ patience is pretty much getting the same way due to the aforementioned pacing and grinding of teeth.

Motorbike Photography

  Meet Mr. Snowden. Jonny Snowden. All round good guy and thoroughly upstanding chap, but a rather reluctant model. I had offered to photograph his bike, but failed to mention I wanted to put his bike in context with him.

Classic Car Photography

Car photography is a real passion of mine. Okay, so I’m a sucker for automotive photography of any description. And yes, I know I have said I really enjoy the big stuff, such as lorries or truck, and buses for that matter. But take a lovingly restored classic, where the attention to detail is something to be marvelled at, and that makes for a really enjoyable shoot.

Product Photography for Lanzet Kitchens

Lanzet are a bespoke kitchen design and manufacturer, based in Preston. I was asked to provide updated images for their website and brochure etc., with the emphasis to be on the quality of their work, and craftsmanship.

Lorry Photography for CP Davidson, Chorley

CP Davidson are based in Chorley, and build custom lorry back ends, such as the skip hook adaptation pictured above. Therefore, the photography needed to concentrate on their work (The adaptation) rather than the cab. Obviously, the cab is the pretty bit, but the hook assembly is what they do, and what they sell.
