Art directed by Rodger Stanier and Holly Pallister, it was a great shoot and we found ourselves in Wales around the Devils Bridge area for the first 2 shots, then down to Sharpness Docks on the River Severn for the next shot, then finally racing down to Exmoor to shoot a dam for the background of one of the shots.
I had a lot of fun on this shoot, with some great people, and I hope the shots do the brief justice.
To make up for the silence, I have a 3 part blog going out today that brings me right back on track.
April was a quiet Month for me, but May picked up at pace and I was briefed on a nice Subaru Cosworth studio shoot, which I shot up at Junction 11 studios in Banbury ( nice studio ).
Here's the shots - hope you like the results.

In addition to this I've been selected for the finals of the AI-AP with one of the images I shot in New York back in October, its the image of the Coney Island Cyclone from the subway train.
All being well, I'll be in New York late in May for the award night, and I'm sure I'll have some pictures from the event.

I'd also like to thank Mark Bullen for his endless hours of retouching on this job, and for having the patience and vision to bring it altogether for me.

The Apricale Commune are hosting a photographic advertising festival http://www.geckofestival.it/workshop.html . The festival is to be called the Gecko festival, which ties in with the Lucertola (lizzard) association that the village has. Apricale has been a mecca for italian artists for years and houses many talented artists and exhibitions and I'm honoured to be able to present the seminar.
The seminar will be hosted over a 3 day period 5th, 6th and 7th June and will cover in detail the subject of CGI car photography. I'm hoping to make it as hands on as possible and look forward to presenting it. My presentation is the only english speaking one of the festival, but I'll have to brush up on my italian just in case.
For more information on the festival contact Susanna Perachino firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on +39 347 628 6890.
Here's the exert about my seminar.
3D Car Production (genere scatto: automobili)
I started the year shooting a Subaru Ad for CST in London, which was shot under the worst weather conditions I've worked in for a long time. We shot the car in the snow and -5 degrees c weather conditions of south London, and by the power of post production it ended up looking like spring.
Almost immediately I was off to New Zealand for a shoot for the new Yamaha Tenere, shooting a series of backgrounds, which again was hampered by terrible weather - mostly sea fog and heavy rain ( its the worst summer new Zealand has had in a long long time ), but we got some gritty abstract backgrounds all the same. From there we headed straight to Amsterdam where the bike units were to be shot, and even though the Amsterdam weather cold and snowy, we were in the studio all tucked up nice and warm.
The Post production on the campaign is nearly finished, and as soon as the press embargo is lifted off the images I'll get them straight up here for all to see.
Currently I'm waiting on confirmation for a couple of projects, but in the meantime I've been working on a few new personal images and will get those upline this coming week.

I just received these images from the agency in China that I shot the Corvette campaign for, and wanted to share them with you. Retouching was handled by T&W in Shanghai, and I think tiger (their main retoucher)has done a really good job on the images.
Its been a crazy mad time recently, I'll write another blog entry about all of that in the next few days.
In the meantime - I hope you like them
