Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Normally around this time I’d be knee-deep in car shows and race events. Hopefully that will pick up again sooner rather than later, but in the meantime I am staving off boredom by setting my studio up and getting busy! There are models I have which I haven’t put in front of a camera for nearly ten years. Suffice it to say, my skills and equipment have improved much since then, so I am looking forward to doing some long-overdue shoots. I have done three shoots so far this week, and have at least 10 more planned.

The first shoot I did this week was my Exoto Ford GT40. Purchased in 2010, it represents the very early days of my collection, so it’s somewhat special to me. It’s not one of the “famous” GT40s, but still a great looking car, and a nice, high-detail model.

And with another icon of American engineering achievement in the 60s, a Saturn V (vinyl model, not sure the scale, but I do know it’s not 1:18)

I’ll try be hanging around more in the coming days & weeks, especially as I’m doing these shoots. It was a busy autumn & winter for me, with a few race shoots, a new job, and a new web site. I worked to get things done in time for the start of the race season, and did even manage to shoot one track event in March before everything was cancelled. Right now I’m just glad at least one of my hobbies I can do indoors.

Cheers!
