Ravenglass Handmade Ice Cream I had an enquiry from Ravenglass Handmade Ice Cream, which at first I thought was to be a food shoot. Ice cream? Food? Seemed kinda obvious to me. As the conversation unfolded, I realised it was more along the lines of an automotive shoot. They have a trailer they can supply for weddings and events. Fully manned and ready to go,
Motorcycle Photography Carlisle Cumbria Harley Davidson Sportster 883 I've said it before, automotive work is certainly amongst my favourite genres, and I really don't mind what it is I've been asked to photograph. Huge lorries or the smallest car, it's all good. But, I do enjoy shooting interesting or challenging vehicles the most. And oddly enough, motorcycles can be every bit as challenging as a
Automotive Work With The Elinchrom One Following on from my food shoot with the Elinchrom Ones, I then had a car shoot arranged. Automotive work is a particular passion of mine, and it would certainly be an interesting test for the Elinchrom Ones. The above image is the finished bracketed image, but not the final image. And yes, I said bracketed image. I usually bracket
Photographing large vehicles on a bright day Automotive work is something I particularly enjoy. I don't mean just the exotic cars, although they certainly have their appeal.

The impact of digital on the commercial photography world still holds surprises, which I
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.
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.
This was the first real outing for the Fujifilm GFX 50s, with quite a rare incarnation of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430. The GFX turned out to be the absolutely ideal camera for the automotive or car photographer. This image was taken in Worden Park in Leyland, Lancashire.
After I’d had a run of silver cars, I was rather grateful for a black Ferrari 308GT Spider to turn up in Preston, and in rather nice nick too. The brief was for exterior and detail imagery, and the weather was rather good. I really do enjoy my automotive, or car photography.
I had the opportunity to photograph the rather beautiful Mercedes SLR McLaren at William Loughran, esteemed supplier of performance and luxury cars.
