Press Release:

jaguarFollowing six months of high-level talks and painstaking planning, leading photo-retailer Calumet is set to stage an exclusive workshop event for photographers and car enthusiasts in a unique ‘industry first’ deal with prestige car maker Jaguar at the Jaguar Cars Visitors’ Centre, Birmingham.

The company has teamed up with the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust and one of the world’s top car photographers, Tim Wallace, to offer photographers and car enthusiasts a unique autumn workshop opportunity.

Explained Michele Channer, Calumet Photographic’s UK marketing director: “This is a tremendous coup for Calumet and gives our customers a superb opportunity to shoot new and classic Jaguar cars in a double studio environment as part of a day-long workshop by Tim Wallace – one of the best car photographers on the planet. We’ll be taking over the entire visitors’ centre site for the day.

She added: “In addition to the seminar and hands-on shoot, which will include inside close-ups of classic cars, we will be setting a challenge to every delegate to produce an image that could feature on the front cover of Jaguar’s Heritage Archive Magazine. And depending on the results we plan to set up a special exhibition to showcase the best work too”.

Key vendors like Bowens, Nikon, onOne and Hasselblad will be on site to dispense hints, tips and workflow advice and each delegate will drive away with a finished digital print supplied by Epson.

Topics covered by Tim Wallace will include:
  • What it takes to be a good car photographer
  • Elements of car photography
  • Shooting styles
  • Environment and how it impacts on mood
  • Car rigs and how to make the most of them
  • Shooting car to car
  • Working on a budget
  • Digital post techniques
  • Fitting your work to the client brief.
John Maries, executive director at JDHT said: “We are looking forward to seeing some really inspirational images from the day. Jaguar has always produced some of the world’s most beautiful cars and delegates will get the chance to photograph latest models like the XK and XF as well as some all-time classics from our collection.
