Locations are key to car photography shoots, and with the Evoque convertible I wanted to cover it at a coastal location on a bright summers day, Whitstable seemed the perfect combination for a soft topped bright blue sea and skies. Just to add another element to the automotive photography I used the Evoque with Kent based Aquathlon athlete Yiannis Christodoulau, this tied in with some new portraits for his portfolio as well as adding a sporting element to the car.

I had used the harbour area in Whitstable before and with permissions ticked off the harbour and jetty area were ours for a couple of hours, the early evening sun was high up with no cloud cover, shooting in to the sun is never easy but with the addition of the Profoto B1 flash this lit the shadow areas with ease.

Range Rover have produced a four wheel drive convertible that not only looks good but drives well, roof down and some twisting bends proved that the weight of the Evoque actually enhances the driving, most convertibles suffer from body roll and buffeting at speed. The photos for the Range Rover will be used by Barretts Land Rover for promotional purposes and will provide Yiannis with another outlet for his promotional portraits. The car is available to purchase now from Barretts Kent, based in Ashford and Canterbury and starts from £47,500.
