1965 Green Mustang Fastback
A few years back I put down my cameras; I was burnt out, I had enough. I was tired of the cold calls, arguing with clients about price, having other photographers undercut you, having a cousin with a camera think they could do it, having to rush the job but wait for payments, and just the malaise of the business. The dream was gone. I just got on to other things and enjoyed myself. I really didn’t touch my cameras for a couple of years; didn’t want to, didn’t feel the urge to. I found new passions and got on with my life. I remember selling my view camera, most of my studio equipment and telling friends I didn’t miss it. Every so often I would offer a print to a charity auction and people would wonder what had happened. Nothing happened, I was blocked up, burnt out and had had enough.
All was fine until last winter; for some reason I was interested again, I felt something stirring, I went out with my camera and surprisingly I liked it. Over the past summer I continued with a good number of usable exposures. Well I’m back; not like I used to be, but I am back. I have other priorities now, and that’s okay; but I do enjoy photographing, working my images and immersing myself in the photographic world during my free time. It’s different now, but I have more clarity and am enjoying myself again.
The above image of a green 1965 Mustang was taken for a client who was very pleased with the results. I’m pleased to say this print along with other reproductions are available at Fine Art America and printed on metal at Displate.com . I am also pleased to announce I will being taking a limited number of bookings for your classic car photography sessions throughout 2016. If interested please contact me by email.
