Spring time is a popular time of year for new showrooms to be completed or started upon after the March registrations, the fact that the sixteen week build was completed on time and to Mini's high standards is testament to the craftsmanship and quality of Arkay building services. The theme over the years with car dealerships is to turn them more in to a buying experience, Italian coffee machines, iPads, interactive displays where the customers can personalise everything down to the LED mood lighting in the footwells, the list goes on. The photography today chad to show all of the interior and exteriors of the build, the addition of various Mini's resplendent in the showroom added to the photography.

As with the Motorline showrooms in Maidstone earlier this week I used the 16-35mm on the lightweight Canon 6D based on a tripod for the longer exposures photographs, the 24-70mm on the 1DX helped with the detail images and other cropped exterior car dealership photographs at Arden Mini. The weather was slightly overcast which helped with the interior photos, this meant that no bright lighting from the sun would interfere with the showroom interior and paintwork on the cars. As I was using longer exposures the Mini workshop photograph had the added bonus of some motion blur from the white car entering in to the garage. Arden Mini's showroom is based on London Road, Maidstone and can be seen from afar by the yellow Mini Copper on the exterior of the showroom!
