This week commercial car photographer Tim Wallace spent some time getting to grips with Audi’s new R8 Coupe V10 Plus.
No model with the four rings is closer to motorsport, none is more striking and more dynamic. This is Audi’s second generation of its high-performance R8 sports car, the V10 mid-engine and a newly developed quattro drive give breathtaking driving performance, especially in the top-of-the-range version achieving 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds.

A high-revving mid-engine with superior performance, a consistently lightweight construction concept and an extremely dynamic chassis with quattro drive system and fully variable torque control – this is what makes the R8 the sporty spearhead of Audi. The high-performance sports car has been newly developed from the ground up – it is more taut, more striking and more fascinating both on the race track and on the road.

This month saw Tim Wallace in Dubai as one of the lead instructors for GPP 2016.
The Gulf Photo Plus Event takes place each year and attracts thousands of people from across the region and also across the World to attend seminars and workshops as well as participate in live shoot events as well as enjoying the Expo that runs alongside throughout the week.

During the GPP 2016 event Tim held several classes;
The Power of Amazing Light – Class Based Talk (90mins)
The Art of Automotive (Car) Photography – Intermediate (2 day Workshop)
The Art of Automotive (Car) Photography – Advanced (2 Day Workshop)
Inspire – Innovate – Lead | A Business Seminar – Seminar

Tim “This was my first time at GPP and I was invited earlier last year to attend and take part in this great event. I have to say that GPP is one of the best events of this kind that I have ever been involved with and the whole week is super organised which is a very good thing for people like me that are teaching and training because with seminars and live car shoots over days to complete there is a lot involved!”

“Over the course of the very intensive week I held several events as well as two sets of live car shoots, each lasting two days each covering lighting and photography from the studio to out on location with two different groups of people at differing levels. I had the pleasure of meeting some truly amazing people and making some new friends along the way, when your working with a group over two days you form relationships and get to know people, this is really important to me when I’m training as I think it helps to get to know people and understand their needs and aspirations so that you can help them achieve those within that time together.”

“I would also like to thank GPP themselves for all their help in getting all the equipment that I required for these classes as well as managing to organise me over $3m worth of subject cars to shoot, epic job guys!
Finally I have to say a huge thank you to my assistant in Dubai, Feroz Khan, who was quite simply amazing each and every day and was very much the glue that held our hectic and sometimes overwhelming schedule”
All BTS images here shown are provided by Feroz Khan, thank you !

Some Great Feedback we would like to share

Guy Source – I just wanted to write and say how I much I enjoyed Tim’s class on Saturday and Sunday this week.
I’ve always loved cars and photography so putting the two together is quite something for me.
Tim had some really great stories about his life and is was fascinating to hear about his work and photography career to date.
I liked the way in which Tim worked, the way he set up the first car on each day in terms of lighting, position etc. The second car, we had to approach ourselves as a group which really helped us learn where we were going right or wrong.
I think I can truly speak for all in the class in that we have all progressed and learnt a great deal in a relatively short space of time and that it was worth every dirham!
Now I might need to turn this hobby of mine into something more serious, Tim has encouraged me and I am looking forward to his ‘Inspired Business’ seminar on Thursday.
Special thanks also goes to Feroz for being a top right hand man to Tim and us all on both days. I do hope to see Tim back in Dubai again after this years GPP event.
Thanks to all at GPP who helped organise this. What you are all doing is great.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
Photography ©TIM WALLACE
Interview by TERRY HOPE

The motor industry is notoriously secretive about its new models, so when Tim Wallace was asked to picture Peugeot’s latest dream machine it was no surprise that the job required total discretion…

Tim Wallace is used to working around the sometimes meticulous requests of the motoring industry. In his time he’s tackled full-on commissions for the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes and Morgan, as well as shooting for some of the world’s most iconic brands,
such as Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Ferrari in Europe, and Dodge, Chevrolet and Mustang in the US.
He thrives on the pressure and has the accolades to prove it: honours include being named International Commercial Advertising Photographer of the Year and UK Motor Industry Professional Car Photographer of the Year, confirming his reputation as one of the best
in the business. One of the things anyone shooting pictures for the car industry realises very quickly is that there is so much competition between the various brands, and such an insatiable demand from motoring enthusiasts to hear about fresh models as soon as possible, that there’s often a high level of secrecy required to ensure that the latest launches aren’t revealed to the world before the manufacturer intends.

So in many ways it wasn’t a huge surprise for Tim, having been approached by Peugeot last summer to produce a massive international campaign for its latest ‘Fractal’ electrically powered concept car, that he learned the latest shoot was to be carried out strictly behind closed doors. There was a slight problem with this stipulation, however: at the time France was in the middle of a heat wave, and the crew realised very quickly that this was going to become a pressure-cooker job in more ways than one. The temperature in the city was around 35°C, and behind those secretive closed doors – with huge Arri continuous studio lights pumping out still more heat – it quickly climbed to over 42°C at times. Almost unbearable on occasions.
“Everything has to be done as discreetly as possible to avoid images of the car leaking out,” says Tim. “This was why we were asked to undertake the shoot in the Peugeot’s own in-house studio, which is situated in the middle of their plant in Paris. Everything was so hush-hush that the Fractal even arrived on set under a cover so that no one living in the flats near the location would
have the chance to see it. We also had just a very short window of opportunity in which to work – only four days. The team was working for over 12 hours at a time on occasions.
“But it was all worth it from my point of view because Peugeot is a great client and its design team is very strong indeed. It has great vision for how it wants to sculpt the photography around the product and branding. It’s all very much about emotion, so when they
first approached me – through their production company – it was a very quick fit from a style point of view.”

Planning the shoot

With any type of worldwide campaign it’s crucial to ensure that everything is planned and worked out well in advance, so that during the critical days of actual shooting the team is free to concentrate fully on creating and producing the photography that’s required.
The brief was to shoot the concept car in a way that showed off its technology and its revolutionary use of sound within the interior controls. Each shot was based on its final position within a CGI sound- based scene and carefully pre-agreed using visuals.
“I was very lucky to have Paris-based Cream Production taking control for this shoot,” says Tim. “The team there is both dedicated and vastly creative. Having such a well-organised production house involved really helped to make sure that we were able to achieve the very best result possible for the client. Even with the huge amount of work to get through it was always a great atmosphere – very much a team effort with everybody pulling together for the common goal.

“I worked with my two lighting assistants, Peter and Hugo, who were both totally amazing and fully committed to making sure we got the best results possible. As with any lighting shoot you hit issues and problems that need to be resolved, and that again is where teamwork comes into play. I think we had a few moments when Hugo was literally using his own body weight to anchor the floating ceiling, while Peter ran round trying to switch lighting out that was quite literally on the point of exploding because of the heat.” Given the tight timing and high pressure it might not have been the best of times to switch over to a new camera, but Tim decided that this was an assignment perfectly suited to the strengths of the Hasselblad H5D 50c. “I’ve been a Hasselblad user for the last seven years,” he says. “I appreciate the reliability of the system but most of all I love the lenses, and over time I’ve built up quite a selection. When I looked to change my H3D it was an easy choice: I was looking for a camera that came with the advantage of a CMOS sensor and could make best use of my existing equipment on the same platform.
“I shoot a lot in the studio using powerful dedicated lighting, so low ISOs are usually fine, but the higher ISO speeds that the CMOS sensor brings meant I would be able to use the same camera for lighter, editorial type work in available light conditions. Previously I’d have had to shift back over to a DSLR platform for that. “I had been offered deals from other manufacturers to swap to their systems, but I really didn’t want to lose the lenses I feel so comfortable with. I’d tested out the H5D 50c in advance and loved it and its simplicity. So I was happy to make the switch, both from a user point of view and from a business perspective.”

Baptism of Fire

The baptism of fire – which came in the form of a boiling hot studio and intense working conditions – never worried Tim’s new camera, which came through the experience unscathed. “We had no issues whatsoever,” says Tim. “No matter how we used it – whether that be attached to a FOBA tripod head as normal or suspended upside down 15m above the car and being operated remotely. Having that sort of reliability and, more importantly, the confidence to push the equipment and crack-on at a fast pace really helped a huge amount.” Tim and his team started out producing static shots of the car’s exterior. They used the H5D camera tethered to an Apple MacBook Pro laptop with images being fed directly back to a digital retoucher. The retoucher compiled the individual frames and verified in real time that everything needed for the final image was in the bag, and it was safe to move on to the next shot. A highly efficient way of working, that enabled the
brief to be tackled as quickly as was practicably possible. “The most demanding shots were the overheads where we were looking down into the car, as the studio set-up did not allow a direct overhead viewpoint to be taken up,” Tim recalls. “Instead I had
to work from a cherry picker – I climbed into it to set up the camera so that we were totally in the right position, lit the shot, then operated the camera remotely from the ground with the Macbook Pro.”
Naturally – as with any car shoot these days – there was a certain amount of post-production required to finish off the images. But although the futuristic background was CGI generated, the car itself was relatively unaltered. “Apart from the process of cleaning up the images to get rid of any last-minute marks, the post-edit work was kept to a minimum,” says Tim. “The fact that Pascal, my digital retoucher, was working on the files as they came out of the camera meant that once we’d finished the final shot the post-production was already 90% complete. I had overall control on the final sweep, mainly to tie all the images together as a set once the CGI background had been added.” By the end of the intensive four-day shoot 45 images had been completed: an incredible achievement considering how involved and complicated some of them turned out to be. The success of the project is a testament to Tim’s considerable photography skills. His striking set of images was used to launch the Peugeot Fractal at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Tim Wallace – Getting more from light – Beginners lighting Class

They say ‘lighting’ is everything in photography and is without any doubt one of the most crucial elements to crafting and great image.
In this class Tim Wallace, a well respected and renowned commercial photographer who has shot everything from engineering parts, to huge planes and supercars, to lifestyle and watches will be talking about light. This class is firmly aimed at those that perhaps are not totally sure of how to achieve the images that they practising shooting as well as those that would just like some good advice on which equipment could be best for them for what they would like to shoot. The class will cover a whole broad range of subjects from equipment to how we can work with light and make it do what we want it to do so that we can create great images and build up on those lessons learned and grow as photographers.
All levels are welcome and no question is too silly in this class that Tim has specifically put together so that he can help share his knowledge of light and build an awareness for those attending that if we really start to ‘understand’ light then we often find that lighting, good lighting, is not really as difficult as we may have first thought.
During the class there will be a talk through many different aspects and elements to equipment and light, Tim will be sharing his views and advice as well as offering some valuable tips, as well as offering some demonstrations of lighting in the studio that we have available new to where the class will be held.
If you are seeking help with lighting and would like to understand more about how to learn to light better and progress your work then this is the class for you no matter what subjects you shoot. The advice given is not specific to any style or type of photography but more so is a journey through how we start to understand light and therefore move forward to control it.

Fujiholics Official Website
Tim Wallace – Creative Lighting Class

Tim is a well known photographer across the world for his high end commercial work, most predominately within the automotive car industry, in this class he will be approaching the very key subject of lighting. The course is not specific to any style or type of work but is very much a class for those attending to have an opportunity to get a better understanding of light and now we can work with it in many ways moving forward from basics. If we can truly ‘understand’ light and why it acts as it does in differing situations then we can start to create situations to dictated and control our lighting.
Tim has shot everything from engineering parts, to huge planes and supercars, to lifestyle and watches across his career and working within the commercial world of advertising and campaign photography he is very aware of the value of good lighting and the importance of understanding how to create light to match our requirement.
The event will take place in studio giving those attending not only a chance to see hands on how lighting can effect things drastically but also will give those attending the opportunity to also shoot their own images and experiment from the lessons learned.
Tim is very well known for his creativity and open approach with a unique strong style of work and creative approach that inspires not only his clients but also their customers, something that was reflected recently when he was awarded, ‘International Commercial Advertising Photographer of the Year’ and ‘Car Photographer of the Year’ at the Industry Awards. He is today regarded as a leading automotive photographer within the industry and a renowned creative who is extremely passionate about the ‘craft’ of photography.

Commercial Automotive Car Photographer Tim Wallace recently did a closed shoot at Junction 11 Studios for the new Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS.
The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS is a little more rounded, a little more polished than its predecessor. But it goes far toward capturing that ‘70s-era élan, and it’s more powerful, with better tuning, than was the first contemporary iteration when it came out last year.

Did you know that targa means shield in Italian?
It happens to be the name of a convertible Porsche created 50 years ago as a way to get around some potential U.S. federal regulations against open-top cars in the 1960s. The original Porsche Targa featured a steel roll bar at its center, with a removable roof panel and a removable plastic window covering the rear. It was the car you bought if you were cool and a little different from the norm—something for thinkers and creative driving enthusiasts who wanted to imbibe the sun and the wind, unimpeded by convention.

The quirky look of that Targa roof was different enough to separate it from the conventional 911s and other, more staid, roadsters. You could recognize it from streets away. It formed a literal and symbolic shield from the mundane.

If you choose to buy this car—and I’ll be jealous if you do—I suspect that the first thing attracting you to it is how the exterior looks. I don’t blame you. Let’s face it: In certain upscale suburban neighborhoods or fancy vacation spots, Porsche 911s are so ubiquitous that they’ve begun to feel clichéd. That homogeneity equals b-o-r-i-n-g. Predictable.
The worst part is that there is nothing boring about driving a 911 coupe or standard convertible. Nothing.
So it’s a relief when you stumble upon a 911 Targa. Finally, something different! The retro glass roof, bi-xenon LED headlamps, 20-inch matte black wheels, and twin dual sport exhaust tail pipes look way more interesting than a run-of-the-mill Carrera. For the first time in a while, the exterior of a 911 accurately communicates how not-normal the car is to drive.
