Super Supercar Photography Course with Peter Hall

Posted in Uncategorized on October 15th, 2009 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

Supercar photographer Peter Hall is a very busy man, but has given us two days of his valuable time to teach car photography at Cars International, Kensington. Places are filling fast (actually since we started writing this!), so you’ll need to be quicker than a Ferrari to sign up. We are offering places at Cars International, Kensington on Friday November 6th and Saturday November 7th, and Saturdays and Sundays through December -March by popular demand. We are also in talks to sort out some Aston Martin photography on their test track, which is one of Peter’s regular haunts. If you’re interested Aston Martins please drop us a line, we’d be glad to set something up quickly.

Sorry about the lack of posts over the last couple of weeks – we’ve been teaching at Sudelely Castle, Ashton Court, Montacute, Crystal Palace – all over really, as well as photographing weddings and families for our regular job. Phil and Rachel also survived the three wedding weekend with weddings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We’ll put some more pictures up in the next few days. Peter is taking some students tomorrow to the Britcar 500 at Silverstone – can’t wait to see the photos!

Meanwhile here’s another one of Peter’s – the Bugatti Veyron:

Meanwhile we have added some new venues for next year – Pollok House in Glasgow, Culzean Castle on the Ayrshire coast and Chillingham Castle in Northumberland. More on all these later, but suffice to say we are thrilled to be teaching at all these historic and beautiful places (if a bit frightened of the ghosts at Chillingham).

On our holiday we visited (nay, stayed overnight in) the extremely creepy Chillingham castle in Nortumberland. Even for sceptics like myself, it’s a very scary place.

It’s loomed large on TV’s Most Haunted – have a look for it on You Tube. My pictures show the scratches on the inside of the dungeon door, and a few creepy things around the place. The owner, Sir Humphry Wakefield, has a bat as part of his coat of arms, so naturally has a huge bat weathervane above the place._DSC6641_DSC6648

Oh and the picture is Chillingham’s Spanish Witch. Eeek
