Morris prepares for the spotlight

After his ‘Best in Show’ win at the London to Brighton Mini Run a couple of weeks ago Morris took centre stage again today. Soon after the run Kevin heard that Mini Magazine would like to publish an article all about Morris so the first step was to get some great photos of him. Today we met up with Matt Richardson, a photographer who shoots cars for lots of magazines and we headed over to Henham Church, our chosen location.

Matt was very generous and let me take some behind the scenes shots as he worked. It was fascinating to see how he worked and gratifying to see a pro shooting the same sort of angles that I would instinctively go for. I didn’t have the benefit of the lights Matt was using but the weather held for us and I was still able to catch some shots I was happy with.

To finish the session, we took some action shots, with Kevin driving through the village as we both panned with him. I was especially pleased with my slow shutter speed shot. Given that Morris only has 34 horsepower I think this makes him look really quite fast!

Well done Kevin.  Fame at last!  Very well done Morris, and I should say congratulations to Helen for these shots of Morris too.
