MORGAN AERO 8 AUTOMOTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY

Brands Hatch Morgan have been a client of mine for may years now, today was a unique opportunity to drive and photograph the new Morgan Aero 8 before the motoring press got there hands on this amazing car. The new Aero 8 is a revelation compared to the previous model, build quality is superb and the mix of traditional wood and leather in the cabin makes for a very special place. The Aero has a BMW 4.8 litre V8 engine, this car was mated to a six speed manual gearbox which was an absolute joy to drive, the torque is immense and pulls along so freely. With 367 bhp and a weight of just over 1100 kilos this is a seriously fast car, seeing that vast bonnet up ahead with the dome headlight surrounds is pure driving pleasure and for me this beats all of the electronic trickery of the supercar fraternity hands down.

The photography shoot took place around Borough Green and Brands Hatch, the rolling photos were taken hanging out of a Morgan three wheeler, surely the ultimate photography tracking car. For the static car photographs we used the Retreat which is a restaurant and spa situated just down the road from Brands Hatch Morgan, the idyllic English house fitted in with this Gentleman's GT car. The Royal Ivory paintwork set against the soft jade leather upholstery works so well, and lighting with the Profit B1 flash worked really well, against light paintwork the B1 lifts the car and detail.
