Was in Brighton today doing a shoot for promotional material for a movie flyer which is being taken to Cannes this weekend. Initially a Jenson Interceptor was to be the original choice for this, but getting the car was another story. As the movie is based around an exentric inventor I guess the XJS with its Monaco bodykit (aparently only 1 out of 10 out on the road right now) was quite fitting. The Car will be a main feature throughout the movie.
A attended the annual London to Brighton run to Maderia Drive for Wolkswagen Camper Vans, always a great sight and every year it is packed from one end of the strip to the other.
I attended the Moving Motorshow this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and had a fantastic time. It was nice to go on a quieter day where you could take everything in and just view all the cars without the overcrowding from the FOS weekend. It is crazy how much there is on show, but the whole event was so well layed out, and to top the day off with glorious weather made it a very memorable event.
Using mainly 85mm and 35mm Prime lenses, I went for more detail shots shown below
Every year the members of RTOC, Renault Turbo Owners Club get together for their national day which consists of blasting their cars around the track. This year I didnt take my 182 on track, so instead just socialised and snapped away in the scorching sun.
I`m very late uploading this selection of shots from the Goodwood Revival in 2012, but this is the second time I have attended this event and I just love it. Again felt like going back into a timewarp and my selection of images from the day are shown below…
Just a few detail shots from Brighton Breeze 2012
September the 8th was the return of the 2012 Brighton Speed Trials. An event which has been going on since 1905 and always a enjoyable motorsporting event to attend.
I spend the morning trying to capture a pan shot of every vehicle that ran up the quater mile, then in the afternoon a few shots at diffferent angles.
The 70-200 with a Polarizer was used for the whole day, and a selection of the days photos are shown below
