Published Work – Gatebil Magazine

Leave a reply

2016 has been a year of polar opposites, work wise I have been incredibly busy, photographically I have been very quiet. I have shot much less but what I have shot has gone much further. Because I have been shooting for clients and not myself a lot of my work has remained on hard drives until they have been published. In July I attended an event called GATEBIL at Rudskogen Motorsenter in Norway. If that name rings a bell, it is because I went last year which you can see here. This is hands down my favourite motorsport event I have ever had the pleasure of attending and this year I got the extreme honour of shooting for their own magazine, predictably called GATEBIL MAGAZINE. I was tasked to shoot several feature cars, one of which is this super rare, Steatlh B7 which is one of one! What I didn’t know until this month was that I made the front cover. And I don’t mean I got a small picture on the front cover…I GOT THE MAIN IMAGE! Thanks guys! Anyway, here is a few images that didn’t make the cut. Thanks to Jan Øivind Ruud and Team RR for being so helpful during the shoot and thanks to Kaj Alver for getting me the gig.

Canon 300mm f/4 L IS USM – Review

Leave a reply

Yes that’s correct. It has been a while since I last did a review. There is a very good reason for this too, instead of doing them on my site, I have been offered the opportunity to reach a bigger audience and do them for Cafetography. An online photography magazine that features lens reviews and tutorials as well as showcasing any photographic news. They work with my preferred place to rent camera gear, Lens Locker. So when Lens Locker asked if I would do a review for them, I jumped at the chance.

Now, I used to own a 70-200mm f/4 L USM which I used on my now sold Canon 50D for motorsport, it seemed to be a match made for someone just starting out. However when I went full frame, the 70-200 became a little too short for me. And because I am not made of money, I started renting lenses from the guys at Lens Locker and the 300mm f/4 L IS USM became my new weapon of choice. Anyway, enough of that here’s the video. Let me know what you think, it is my first one so no doubt I won’t sound a smooth as butter.

AXUK

AXUK or ArenaCross UK finished up it’s Grand Finale at the Wembley Arena back in February. And I was there to witness it in it’s full glory! Now rather than just regurgitate the same images you have seen before, here is a selection of images that didn’t make the report. If you want to check out my report on FUELTOPIA, it can be found here. If not then just enjoy the images.

Go Fast, Turn Left…

Leave a reply

Let’s talk about discovery for a second. I don’t mean the documentary channel on sky, I mean actually discovery something. My latest discovery is Sideburn Magazine. A magazine that brings you some of the coolest dirt track related news and features from around the world. Their world, a world I previously hadn’t been privy too. They were having a launch party for the upcoming season of Dirt Track Racing. Something which I now have to attend.

Anyway, back to this discovery. It is no secret that I am petrolhead, I love cars specifically and always have. I grew up on RallyCross, Touring Cars and Formula 1, my family had a love affair with fast Fords and I could identify any car down the street on what exhaust pipe it had alone. Motorbikes weren’t really within my remit. You normally fall into the car OR the bike category, rarely both.

What I am try to get across to you is that I had my eyes opened (widely) to a whole other type of racing that I never knew existed. Sure I’d heard of speedway racing but this is different. This seems, and I am sure I will get told off for this, a lot cooler. The bikes are more akin to cafe racers which in my eyes are works of art. This was all new to me. New faces, new machines, new circuits, new rules, new style. I am literally on my first step down this path and I cannot wait to show you more. For now, enjoy some photos from the launch party.

Hyde Park

Leave a reply

On the weekend my good friend Ben came down. Having not seen him for a while we had a lot to catch up on. What better way to do that than stomping around Hyde Park with cameras in hand interrupting conversation only to order another coffee. Once the best of the light started to fade we went and chased down a few beers because walking is a bit overrated.  It was nice to take a load of photos just for the sake of taking photos. I honestly wasn’t expecting to come away with anything decent but I got a few that I am happy with it. All shot on a Canon 5D MkIII with a Canon 135mm f/2 L if you were wondering.
