After speaking to Euan the last time I was in Edinburgh we decided on shooting when his Alpine Turbines were on. The Caddy has the standard 1.6 diesel engine with a clean and simple look giving it great character. With an engine conversion starting in the near future the pickup will be running a 1.6 turbo diesel!
It’s quite useful having a pickup while shooting as you can just lay in the back or hang over the side hoping that the driver doesn’t hit a bump that sends you flying.
Another couple of days off and I managed to get down to Edinburgh and shoot Stevie’s MK2 GTI (also Euan’s Caddy which will be followed shortly). Stevie was good to shoot with as he just left me to get on with it while he skated around on the ice. It certainly wasn’t the warmest shoot I have done but it was a joy to do! The car has character and as usual I found the best bit which was the door handles. The trigger opening is insane!
Took a trip down to Balmedie Beach and managed to get a sunrise effect from the boats. A good evening!
Shot of Aaron Gwin crashing in qualifiers at Fort William. Still comes back from this in finals to take the win!
A shot of the finals with Marc Beaumont throwing a whip in at the end of his run.
While assisting on a shoot I managed to get this shot. I quickly borrowed the hairdressers watch and came up with this.
