Paul Carson’s 57 Chevy

Apologies for not updating the blog for a while. I have upped sticks from London and moved to Scotland. We have been completley renovating our house and that has taken up any time that would normally be spent on photography. Anyhoo over the winter a few shoots have appeared in Custom Car so let’s get you up to date. Here is Paul Carson’s 57 Chevy. Paul built this to tie in with a photo he saw of a SoCal Speed Shot ’57 from the 70s but gave it a 21st Centuary twist with the wheels. See more in the flickr set here.

Harvey Clarke’s Deliverance – Custom Car

It’s always nice to be asked to shoot a car that has been built by Burnham Autos, the quality of their work is top notch. This Model A belonging to Harvey Clarke has been designed by Mark Brazier-Jones who mostly focuses on bespoke furniture but has provided some great design cues for this gothic sedan delivery. I chose to shoot it against the classic architecture of London, early enough in the morning that the streets were empty. The Sherlock Homes seemed appropriate, I could see him behind the wheel of this Hot Rod.

Missy Malone at the Comic Strip

Back in August I went along to the Comic Strip at the Assembly George Square as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  The line up included the awesome Gipsy Wood and Kitty Bang Bang but I was there to catch up with the fantastic Missy Malone, regular at the Rhythm Riot and Hot Rod Hayride.
