This is a post that I orginally did early last year, I've reposted it as I'm very proud to say that its been shortlisted for the UK Professional Commercial Photographer of the year Award run by Jessops and Archant through the 'Professional Photographer' publication.
I'm not sure if it will actually win however I'm over the moon that its been shortlisted.
The Aston was being shot for one of my commercial clients and nearing the end of the shoot we had a terrific storm base of cloud starting to appear. Rather than pack up and run for cover I couldn't help thinking that it would make a very emotive shot of the GT 7 given the cars sleek design. I made some calls and managed to organise a large sheet of near transparent white material. After a lot of fussing around to actually get the sheeting to stay down with out flying away I got the shot that you can see here. It was a testing 30 minutes but thankfully I think its a a shot that works. When presented to the client we entitled some marketing material with the slogan 'The journey begins' which I feel sits well with the overall mystery and feel of the shot."

Now there's a car photo with a difference! The white material makes it stand out so well against the dark background and gives it a totally different feel than the car would have done on its own. I like the outside-the-box thinking and the processing - and mono was the only right choice here.
