Here’s one of my favourite recent shoots that’s in the latest issue of Classic and Sports car magazine.
F & W RR-1
It features an immaculate Freestone and Webb coach built pre-war Rolls Royce and Mick Walsh and I headed up to Oxfordshire to photograph the car on the private estate of the owner.
I’ve worked with Mick for almost 30 years and we tend to like the same cars and this was no exception with stunning walnut and leather interior and immaculately drawn lines.
F & W RR-3
Despite having no traffic to spoil the view the shoot wasn’t straight forward with low light conditions under the mature growth trees making action photography tricky.In that situation there is no excuse but to shoot more frames until you’ve got the shot.
After a great plug on Top Gear ,the British Auto Legends stamps I photographed for the Royal Mail last September will be launched next week. The 1st class issue cars feature a Jaguar E Type, Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and an Aston Martin DB5.The international stamps include an MGB, Morgan Plus 8 and Lotus Esprit.The cars were shot at Plough studios in South London and designed by Design agency Why Not Associates.There is a range of collector packs and first day covers available through the Royal Mail website. http://shop.royalmail.com/issue-by-issue/british-auto-legends/icat/britishautolegends.
