Brooklands Museum has been the host for my car photography workshops now for eight years, in that time I have had a great variety of cars for the photographers to capture against the stunning historic landscape, with the temperature at 30 degrees it was going to set the cars off perfectly against some uninterrupted blue skies...
Today their was a really diverse mixture of cars on display for the attendees to photograph, these included a three Porsche's, a pair of Dodge Viper's, 8 litre Camaro, Lotus Elan9, 1968 Mustang Convertible alongside a pair of new Mustang's and a Hemi and SRT American pick up trucks.

The format for the day is to start off in the airfield, this is where a variety of aircraft are parked up for the public to view, Concorde heads up the display and makes for some great wide angled images, plus underneath the carriage it works for some more interesting compositions. Before lunch we then set off to the banking, always an amazing setting as back in the day the likes of the Napier were flying around at speeds of 200 mph, hard to believe when you drive around it now. The day concluded with all of the cars being separated around the museum site, the backdrop of the classic garages works really well for some group images. One of my favourite photos of the day was a lowdown one taken of the yellow SRT truck in the long grass, it almost looked like it was ready to charge. Their are also some amazing detail images to find on the cars, especially with the chrome and bright colours spread across the range of cars.

On the day the people who attended ranged from novices to experienced photographers, with such a mix of cars on offer it gives everyone a chance to capture a nice mix of portfolio images, plus we can place the vehicles exactly where we want to for some atmospheric and individual photographs. The next course is on Sunday 9th September spaces still available, any questions please contact me.
