Car Photography

It’s always good to photograph and review new cars to find out at first hand the latest technical innovations and meet the people behind them.

I have photographed new Ford cars on their test track at Dunton in Essex right down to the last Model T Ford to come off of the production line at Dagenham.

It is fun to look back at some of the cars that once made the headlines which have now become classics, or sadly, confined to the breakers yard.

I was lucky enough to own an Aston Martin DB7 and remember a feature Jeremy Clarkson did on the company.  He finished the programme then with this most profound statement.  “Aston Martin.  The company that has produced fewer cars in it’s entire history than the city of Detroit turns out in an hour!”
