This is a Studio based class at the infamous Junction 11 Studios near Banbury, the home of many high end Pro car shoots for such people as Aston Martin, Jaguar and Land Rover and is a rare chance to spend a day working within such a studio with one of the worlds leading car photographers. You will be shooting and starting the process from scratch as Tim walks you through each step. You will be look looking at shape, form and light and how they relate to each other, the issues that we are faced with when lighting a multi-angled reflective surface at a professional level. Working with multiple lights we will learn more of how light has a direct impact on what transposes through to our final image. During this studio shoot day we will also be looking at different techniques that we can deploy to get a range of lighting effects using continuous lighting for our car photography and also how these are very different to working with traditional strobes.

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.

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.

Car photography is, as most that have tried it will testify, complex in its nature at time with many lighting issues to overcome along the journey with light falling onto highly reflective curved surfaces. The work of Tim Wallace is globally recognised to be not only of a highly creative style and flair but also Tim is very well known for achieving much of his photography ‘in camera’ with the clever and adoptive use of lighting.

This is a Studio based class at the infamous Junction 11 Studios near Banbury, the home of many high end Pro car shoots for such people as Aston Martin, Jaguar and Land Rover and is a rare chance to spend a day working within such a studio with one of the worlds leading car photographers. You will be shooting and starting the process from scratch as Tim walks you through each step. You will be look looking at shape, form and light and how they relate to each other, the issues that we are faced with when lighting a multi-angled reflective surface at a professional level. Working with multiple lights we will learn more of how light has a direct impact on what transposes through to our final image. During this studio shoot day we will also be looking at different techniques that we can deploy to get a range of lighting effects using continuous lighting for our car photography and also how these are very different to working with traditional strobes.

During this seminar Tim will be talking through and demonstarting continous lighting as an introduction, how it works, how he applies that and how we can use such lighting for creating some truly great professional standard images. Tim will also be demonstrating and talking through light modifiers, strobe flash for such work as detail shots and what can be achieved with these, as well as how to use them to best affect and creatively regardless of you having several lights at your disposal or just one.

This seminar is car based but the lessons learned and demonstrated in this session can be applied to shooting a wide range of subjects such as people and products.
This class is both and is aimed at people who would like to learn a little about lighting progressing from hand held flash guns to those that have experience in working with professional studio strobe and wish to take their lighting further.

When leading automotive photographer Tim Wallace received a top secret brief to photograph the latest Peugeot concept car in Paris he decided it was the ideal opportunity to team up with the CMOS powered Hasselblad H5D-50c.
Car manufacturers are notoriously guarded about their latest models, so when Peugeot approached Cheshire-based Tim Wallace last summer to photograph the brand new concept car he wasn’t shocked to discover the commission came with a non-negotiable proviso: the shoot had to take place behind locked doors in the company’s own in-house studio in Paris.

“The new model even arrived on the set under cover, just in case anybody in nearby flats caught a glimpse,” Tim recalls, “and despite the fact that Europe was in the middle of a heat wave at the time and it was 35c in Paris, we still had to work with the studio doors closed. That meant that when the lights were switched on and pumping out heat we were recording sweltering temperatures inside in excess of 42c. Frankly, it became almost unbearable at times.”

It was a pressure cooker of a job in more ways than one, with just four days allocated for the shoot and the team working for over 12 hours at a time on occasions.
On the face of it maybe this might not appear to be the best of times to switch over to a new camera, but Tim looked at the job and 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 states. “I love the reliability of my H3D but most of all I love the lenses and now I have quite a selection. When I was planning to upgrade I looked at the H5D-50c, which came with the benefits of a CMOS sensor, and it promised to deliver the best use of my existing equipment on the same platform.”

The confidence was well placed, and despite the soaring temperature the H5D-50c never missed a beat. “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 being suspended over the car from 15m above, upside down 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. It proved to be the perfect tool for the job and I was very impressed and happy with my choice.”
