This past week has definitely been an eclectic mix of work!
Laurent Amann, the creative force behind Storik (www.storik.co.uk) brought in the Rafale motorbike (pictured above) for a photography session. Creativity simply flows when two extremely passionate people come together and this was evident from the word go on this particular session with Rupert and Laurent immediately connecting over the Rafale. This motorbike is quietly confident, it has a gentleness about it, every piece has been meticulously designed and crafted and yet it doesn't scream in your face 'look at me look at me look at me'. It is beautiful, it is art and craft all rolled into one and although I didn't hear it start up I bet it's a different beast the moment the engine turns over. I found the bike drew me in little by little and it felt loved - this is testament to Laurent's painstaking desire to create perfection no doubt. Check out Storik online (link above) to be kept abreast of their creations.
An Aston Martin DBS Vantage up next, a pretty baby blue coloured beast that roared into the cove earlier this week! All Aston Martin are one of our regular clients so this is generally a nice straightforward job. Particularly enjoyed this car, every one of them are very different and all paintwork has to be treated slightly differently in post. This colour required a careful hand, not too much contrast or clarity so as not to 'muddy' the paintwork. If you fancy owning this lovely vehicle you'll be able to find it on All Aston Martin's page shortly via this link http://www.allastonmartin.com/aston-martin-cars-for-sale.html
Not too strange a week you may be thinking but here is the final piece of the puzzle...Gun Hill Studios got their community head on and joined Anthony Lilley's team in the Laughton School Production of The Lion King. This has been a massive undertaking for a little school but Ruth and Anthony have pulled in a million favours from all the professionals in the area and it's been a pleasure to be on board. The kids have all worked super hard, final night filming for us tonight but the show continues on Saturday. Big up to the kids!
