Meeting and working with Tim was a fantastic experience; he’s a terrifically down to earth guy who just so happens to be gifted with an amazing eye for detail and lighting control. Without going into too much detail, Tim shot for us in a rather unique way, choosing high speed flash in the studio (rather than more traditional continuous lighting methods) and 100% natural light outdoors (he didn’t even use any reflectors for the outdoor work!). Furthermore, what amazed us even more was that every single shot was taken handheld as opposed to from a tripod – this even includes the shots taken at 50 mph out of the back of my C2! This goes against the grain of how we tend to shoot the cars we detail ourselves, and just goes to show how much we still have to learn about basic photographic techniques! Anyway, best we let the images above do the talking; to say that we are absolutely delighted with the final results of the shoot would be an understatement, and we are already looking forward to working with Tim again soon.
Images taken during this photo shoot have already been featured in an article in The Press & Journal, which is Scotland’s best selling daily newspaper. To view a pdf version of the article please see this link – ‘Simply Stunning’ by Colene McKessick, The Press & Journal, 26/05/10
