Classic Cars


Footman James is one of the UK’s oldest specialist motor insurers, specialising in classic and vintage cars. Their customers are passionate about their vehicles, so the company wanted to reflect this passion in a series of advertisements with high production values. With this in mind, I decided to shoot the two vehicles in daylight on the beach at Camber Sands. While big skies can work wonders for the lighting, beaches and classic motor vehicles are not the best of bed-fellows. So I had to employ a transporter to place the vehicles exactly where I wanted them and then sweep the sand to remove any traces of tyre tracks. It was a bit of a performance to say the least but what fun and the results created a great feeling of nostalgia with these wonderful vehicles.
