Occasionally, I come across a venue where I feel I may have a bit of a challenge with regards as to where I may do the portrait session. The Samlesbury Hotel is one of those. There is a large car park, which basically surrounds the hotel. There is a field, which I’ve used before, but it wasn’t going to work this time, as this was a November wedding, and it was dark.
This series of images were requested for a PR company that specialised in PR for companies dealing with interiors. The brief was rather vague, other than to get a variation of images, including details. The guidance would come from the builder and owner.
I had the opportunity to photograph the rather beautiful Mercedes SLR McLaren at William Loughran, esteemed supplier of performance and luxury cars.
This was the second shoot with Hazel for her client, Kenanks in Burnley.

This little pocket rocket belongs to Gail Hull, MD of Total Insignia in Blackburn. And whilst I enjoy car and automotive photography of all vehicles, the rarer vehicles definitely have more appeal.

Automotive photography can be challenging, particularly large vehicles such as lorries or buses. And equally, it can be very rewarding.
