Newsletter #47 September 2013

I hope you all enjoyed a particularly fine English summer this year. Over the holiday period I created this new website which is responsive to all devices. Whilst putting the site together, I took the opportunity to reduce the number of images and categories that appeared on the old website. As a result, the new site is easier to navigate and more importantly the images are bigger. If you have a few minutes, please have a look around it.

One of the first new images to grace the site is the B&W portrait of Evie.

In July I went to Gaydon to photograph the paint being applied to the Jaguar Project 7 F-Type, a one-off car that was being sent to The Goodwood Festival of Speed. Painting a car is a fairly complex and time consuming business, with several layers of colour applied before the final coat. I took many images from inside and outside the painting booth and these two gentlemen were happy to help. The shots were to be included in a magazine that Jaguar produced for the festival.

Also in July, People Management Magazine asked me to photograph Steve Varley at the UK headquarters of Ernst & Young in London.

Of the photographs I made on my summer break, the B&W landscape is one of my favourites. It's adjacent to Barricane Beach, near Woolacombe Bay in North Devon.
