Jack Bauer’s Dream in My Sights

Jack Bauer’s Dream in My Sights

You’ll know already that we’ve done a lot of work with Mitsubishi. This time, we were asked to bring our skills to the new Outlander PHEV. Now, as professional as I am, with the new season of 24 and Jack Bauer being back on our screens I really couldn’t help thinking this was his dream. […]

Consider Quadrophenia, then Add a BMW i3

Consider Quadrophenia, then Add a BMW i3

A film that’s never been rehashed, Quadrophenia is one of my faves. The London mods and rockers battling it out on the Brighton streets? What’s not to love? Cars and bikes have come a long way since then, and the gangs just aren’t the same. What would it be if they made a new movie? […]

More than Meets the Eye

More than Meets the Eye

While we were away, downing cold beers at the top of a mountain in Spain and stripping off our cycling ‘mankinis’ in Guernsey (heaven knows why we didn’t wait for some warmer weather) the latest adverts for Mitsubishi started to appear all over the place. Of course I’d seen the finished product – we’d created […]

Rolls-Royce, Shooting a Divine Being, a Celestial Phantom that’s a Millionaire’s Christine

Always when shooting cars I picture a personality. I see a replica of something human that allows me to visualise in a different way. For the first time ever, in secrecy this week, I shot a car that didn’t have any human qualities to display. This is because it was quite simply, out of this […]

Night shots of the Peugeot diesel hybrid on the road outside Paris

Night shots of the Peugeot diesel hybrid on the road outside Paris

Fritz Henderson, one time boss of General Motors, once opined that making petrol hybrid cars is expensive squared – but making diesel hybrids is expensive cubed. What Henderson meant was that diesel engines combined with an electric motor were just not worth the hassle to build. They were too expensive and the exorbitant costs couldn’t […]

Monte Carlo Casino and Jaguar XF

Monte Carlo Casino and Jaguar XF

For today’s blog I thought I’d impart some interesting facts about Monaco: – The principality is less than one mile square. – Roman Abramovich’s new yacht Streets of Monaco will cost upwards of $1 billion and is a sort of floating Monaco – boasting miniature versions of the famed Monte Carlo Casino, Hotel de Paris, […]

Hyundai Grandeur in Venice, Texas

Hyundai Grandeur in Venice, Texas

In many ways the Hyundai Grandeur shoot was different from my other work because Hyundai wanted me to attach my name to the pictures and the video of their latest car. Usually I remain invisible from the product; a hired gun who shoots and moves on to the next job. Essentially they asked me to […]

Volvo – around the world in 30 days

Volvo – around the world in 30 days

The Volvo C30 shoot was a great experience – a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. It was also typical of how shoots have evolved since photography went digital. These days you often go to locations just to shoot a backplate, with the object – or vehicle in this case – added […]
