This was a shot that was done for a Subaru feature for the mag, that was unfortunately never used.
This was shot at a not so secret location, that I still wont mention, somewhere in Gauteng. It was raining a sh*tload on this day, and we barely had enough time to shot the front of the car, before we had to move under a bridge and continue the shoot there. That's where this shot is from. The clouds did us a huge favour by granting is a stunning break, and letting just the right amount of orange hue through. Again, I must thank fellow mag photographer, Tyrone Bradley for letting us use his flashes, as thats how we lit this bad boy up. A stunning shot in my opinion, and one Im really proud of. We ended up shooting until it was pitch black, and the only light that was left for what seemed like a 5 km radius, where the headlights. Very cool shoot, and a truely amazing car!

Oh so A5...

This Audi A5 is an absolute stunner in my opinion. Audi has really upped their game with this car, and is now hot on the heels of rivals BMW(if not already stomping them into the ground).
Everything about this car is magnificent. The new Audis' interiors are way above any competitior by a long shot.
We took this car the Kyalami racetrack, as we didnt have all that much time to shoot it, parked it in front of the tunnel that goes under the track. We lit it partially with flash, and let the monster that is the sun do the rest. Im really pleased with this shot, and cannot wait to get a few flashes of my own(we used fellow mag photographer Tyrone Bradley's flashes for this.
S5 Next...

The Queens Car

I was out shooting this Renault Megane CC, a while back, driving around in the sunshine, when the weather turned absolutely horrid. This did give me some very deep, angry skies, which worked very well with a car, but sadly not this one. I really wish I had had something more in your face to shoot, like a red Subaru STi, or something along those lines, but oh well.

The shot still turned out very cool in my opinion!

Subaru STi Audi S3 BMW 335i

Been a while since Ive updated the blog, so here we go...

This first one was an absolute banger of a shoot. We got to the Kyalami skidpan relatively late in the afternoon, a little pressed for time. Once there we spent quite some time wetting the skidpan down nicely, well actually, one of the journos, Stuart did.
After that it all ran pretty smoothly, except for running a little short on ambient light toward the end of the shoot. Other than that...fantastic.
And the cars...OMG!!! The STi is an absolute killer, but way too expensive, the 335i is super cool, but in my opinion it carries a bit too much of that BMW "look at me Im a dick" stigma.
The Audi S3 is definitely the pick of the bunch in my opinion, and I would kill to have one...no really I would.
