Aston Martin DB2/4 Vignale – Originally ordered for His Majesty the King of Belgium in 1954

The car was supplied in chassis form to Vignale orginally and bodied in a very elegant and beautiful fast-back design, the DB2/4 is a truly ultra-rare Aston Martin and its history stretches back to its very first conception when it was originally ordered for His Majesty the King of Belgium. It has been undergoing a full ground up restoration in the UK and is viewed as one of the rarest and most collectable Aston Martin cars ever made.
Interest in classic Vignale bodied cars has dramatically increased recently, with Ferrari examples achieving phenomenal prices at auction.
This car is understood to be the only classic Aston Martin ever bodied by Vignale, and as such it is of significant historical importance, both to Aston Martin & Vignale.
Delivered to Vignale as a DB2/4 chassis only on 28th September 1954. It was then completed in a one-off distinctive fast-back design, with a large opening rear hatch. This stunning Grand Tourer was then delivered on 10th March 1955. It was fitted with the latter, three litre engine and the 1.73:1 ratio. A totally unique & significant Aston Martin from the 50’s with fantastic styling.

Tim – “I first saw this car 5 years ago when it was little more than a pile of boxes containing the original parts and a heap of body panels, over the years that followed I have been privileged to slowly see the car come back to life with its amazing and unique design, photographing it all the way through to the present day where it is very close to completion. The car was recently shown at the Essen Car Show in Germany and has quite rightly attracted considerable attention with its very striking design from Vignale.

Journeying through Scotland

car photography

This week saw us shooting in the dramatic and evocative landscape that is Scotland. Commercial photographer Tim Wallace spent a week traveling from the very heartlands of Scotland and the fair city of Edinburgh all the way up the west coast towards the very upper regions of northern Scotland recording and photographing some of the most sweeping and beautiful landscapes and countryside that Great Britain has to offer.

car photography

Tim – “I read somewhere a few years ago that every car photographer is secretly a frustrated landscape photographer trying to get out and in many ways this does have some truth to it. As a commercial car photographer the majority of my car work is shot out on location and it could be said that I shoot a landscape of view and at the last minute I pop a car into position to complete the scene. Our trip into Scotland was one that I had planned for sometime and it was very much a case of waiting for the right time of year and clearing enough space in our busy dairy to give the trip the time and effort it justifiably required to ensure that we were able to explore the further reaches of this epically beautiful part of the country. We started our journey from Edinburgh and over the course of the next 7 days made our way up the west coast through the 5 Sisters pass near Glencoe, northward along the beautiful Loch Linnhe onward to Fort William that stands in the shadows of Ben Nevis. From there we travelled north to the Isle of Skye and taking in such areas and scenes as the infamous castle at Eileen Donan before continuing our journey through Ullapool and to tyne upper reaches of the west coast regions.”

Tim – “Its very hard to predict the weather in Scotland and its not uncommon to literally see all four seasons in a single day due to its geographical location in Great Britain. From an equipment point of view it was a situation where I wanted to utilise various camera’s to capture the scenes that we encountered and along for the journey I took both digital and film camera’s. The digital aspect was covered by the Hasselblad H3 DII using both 28mm and 35mm lenses and also my trusty Nikon D3s using the 24mm – 70mm FX lens. I also took with me the Fuji XPro1 camera that I have grown to really love over the last 2 years that I have been using it. Some of the digital work shot also used some Lee filters namely the 9 grad filter and the ‘big stopper’ which is something that I have wanted to try out for some time and I have to thank the guys at Lee Filters for helping out with coming up with a solution for me on the system to allow that to be used on the larger than normal filter diameter of the Hasselbald 28mm and 35mm lenses. I also took a Hasselblad 500 C/M with 120 back for film shooting along with the fun element of the Lomography Spinner 360° camera that takes normal 35mm film and can capture a complete 360 degree view of where your standing”

Tim -“It was a truly amazing trip with a great deal of material captured, I will not say that we didn’t get lost a few times or that we did not have a few ‘hairy’ moments on some of the single track roads in the north but it was indeed a pleasure to get that lost at times and lead us to discover some amazing places that are buried away off the main routes. I think its possible that I will still be working on and processing material from the trip for sometime but it was a very well worth photography expedition and one that will also be able to support my normal commercial work with various high end digital back plates shot across the whole trip.
A truly beautiful part of the world that remains to some extent this day still untouched and as it has for hundreds to years”

From beginners to experts, teachers to students, hobbyists to professionals, this is place where everyone is invited to share, network and engage in a welcoming community.

The Experience of PSW

Tim – “This was my very first PSW event, Scott had previously invited me a few times to take part but workload ands such like prevented me attending in previous years, this year was totally different and it was great to get involved and be a part of this amazing event. Nothing really prepared me for the sheer scale of the whole event and the location in Las Vegas was within the convention centre of the Mandalay Bay Resort and oh boy what a resort! Mandalay Bay is not only possibly one of the biggest Resorts in Las Vegas but it really is like a little town within itself with everything to hand and was truly the perfect place to host something of this nature that was on such a grand scale.

The first morning we were ushered into our seats at the front of the hall used for the Key Note Opening speech were the instructors and partners are positioned and 15 minutes later the doors opened and the crowds quite literally broke through to get the best seats that they could, it was amazing the energy and enthusiasm of the crowds. The key note itself was a real pleasure to watch and following the official opening we prepared for the first of our classes to deliver that an hour later. I have spoken in many different countries over the years on lighting, photography and business but never to a US audience on this scale and I have to say that I really enjoyed it immensely. The crowds were both polite and very enthusiastic about all the seminars that went on over that 3 days period. The lighting class that I gave on the 2nd day went really well and its not often that you get to drive a sports car through a hotel, which is something that we had to do so that we could get it into place for the live shoot event :)
Following the feedback from that live shoot lighting class it has already been announced that from the high demand that in 2015 I will be back in Las Vegas to give more classes and the live shoot event will be making up part of the ‘pre con’ day which occurs the day before the official launch of PSW allowing a select number of instructors to give major time to a reduced and select class of people over a 4 to 5 hour period, this is something that I was very pleased to have been asked to do and it will be great to be able to really get into a lot more depth on the lighting class in 2015 because of this.

car photography

In the final day I delivered my class on ‘Inspired Business’, I knew that this may well be a popular class but nothing prepared me for the scale of that, on the morning of the event we were given one of the largest halls at the convention centre and turn out for that class was the biggest of the entire event for us, it was amazing and very touching indeed for me personally. At the end of each class those attending are asked to fill out a short feedback form allowing them to give their thoughts on the class, its effectiveness, delivery and such like. From the feedback off the Business class we were later told that it had received some of the very best feedback of any class during the entire event and from all the classes given over that 2014 event, as a result Scott Kelby himself made a request that at the 2015 we not only deliver this class again but by request of those attending, we also make it a much longer class and I am currently looking at putting that back to back across a double session for 2015.

Following the excellent and very kind feedback that we received from those that attended the classes over the three day period I was asked to give a speech at the closing ceremony on the final day so once again I was on stage but this time in front of the entire volume of those that had attended the 2014 PSW event. I have to admit I was slightly nervous as the event had I was told attracted over 26,000 people this year, giving it one the highest attendance records in all its history.

On a final note I would like to really say from my heart a huge thank you to the support staff of KelbyOne, these are the guys that work very long hours behind the scenes to make sure that instructors such as myself have everything that we need as well as looking after all the video and audio for each class and event. We made some amazing new friends with the team and I was touched that indeed some KelbyOne guys actually came to attend a few classes themselves between their own duties. The event itself was both physically demanding for those involved with busy days and many after show parties each night, all of which were utterly amazing :) and also gave people like myself a real chance to talk and meet those attending PSW.
Lastly I would say a huge thank you to the other instructors themselves, we met some amazing people on this journey and made some life long friends and we are already looking forward to 2015 PSW in Las Vegas so we can do it all again !”

Jaguar UK – Campaign work for Heritage

Jag News Banner

AmbientLife Commercial Automotive Car Photographer Tim Wallace recently worked with our client Jaguar at their centre in Gaydon, UK to shoot the 2015 Jaguar Heritage Campaign. Tim has been working with Jaguar and their Marketing Agency Epsilon on the campaign utilising Tim’s strong dramatic approach to his car photography. The brief was to produce a series of high quality images that will be used in online and print media advertising over 2015 within Jaguar as well and some of the work that we produced has already been used for the Jaguar displays at the Classic Car Motor Show that was recently held at the NEC in Birmingham.

Jaguar Land Rover joined our client list back in 2009 and since then we have worked closely with them on both Land Rover related projects as well as shooting work with Jaguar, mainly on their ‘Heritage’ side of the business. We have produced and shot work at their dedicated design centre at Gaydon with Land Rover, as well as on the Gaydon test track proving ground that both Jaguar and Land Rover share along with Aston martin. We are very familiar with the protocols and processes involved in using these facilities both effectively and within the required safety parameters and have built a great rapport and mutual professional relationship up also with the facilities staff and the core business test drivers that we often work closely with.

car photography

Tim – “We did the campaign shoot with Jaguar UK for their ‘Heritage’ division of the business over a two separate shoots both over multiple days The first concentrating on the range of cars themselves in both motion and static shots and then a separate session where we were shooting lit scenes of the cars in the Jaguar Heritage workshops as well as shooting the parts photography for the campaign.
It was good to be on familiar ground working at the test track in Gaydon and at the Jaguar facilities there. I have spent a lot of time here over the years at Gaydon and the proving ground, a facility that Aston Martin also share with Jaguar as well as the Land Rover element of Jaguar Land Rover as a Company. One of my main reasons to choose to shoot the ‘dynamic motion’ work and stills / range shots at the test track facility is that away from the main high speed test circuit there is a area that is titled the ‘low emissions’ test straights and these are very similar in appearance to a normal dual carriageway and with this it meant that we had the ability to shoot from a specially modified Range Rover along both sides of that test area without being disturbed and in complete safety. Shooting the motion work and using a car to car shooting technique as I did in this instance can be a very quick and efficient way to work however there are many issues that need to be considered and all the safety aspects come into play because when you are hanging out of the back of a chase vehicle at speeds up to 65mph you very clearly need to have confidence in not only your own safety equipment but also in the person that is driving you. I am very lucky that whenever I shoot in this way at the facility I always use Jaguar, Land Rover, or Aston Martin professional drivers / instructor staff that are not only the very best but also experienced in working with photographers and film crews and thus totally appreciate what is required and what I am looking for. The speed that we shoot at is very much dependant on weather, road surface and light levels as well as the proximity of trees and shrubs in relation to the actual shoot road area, as these give us that all important sense on ‘motion’ and in the case of the Jaguar work most of it was shot at shutter speeds as low as 15th sec, this does take some time to master when you consider that not only are you in a moving vehicle but also hand holding that camera body to achieve those all important ‘hero’ style shots. ”

car photography

Tim – “Many people I speak to think that working as a photographer within the car industry simply means turning up at amazing locations with sports cars and shooting dramatic work, true this is very much a perception that I can not deny is fact based at times when we have ‘hero shoots’ of some models, however on the other side of the coin a lot of time is also spent working on other items that are just as important within the car industry such as parts and service. The main idea behind this recent shoot with Jaguar was to create some additional parts based work to run on from pervious parts work that I had shot historically for Jaguar and the images will be used both in direct advertising as well as online media. Parts to some people may be a little boring but to me its a great opportunity to push whats achievable by simply using good create flair and great lighting techniques that I have built up over the years working in the car industry.”

Sir Stirling Moss writes opening foreword to the new Aston Book from photographer Tim Wallace

sm 1

We are extremely proud and honoured to officially announce that Sir Stirling Moss has written the foreword to photographer Tim Wallace’s Aston book that journeys through the life and models of Aston Martin from the very first Bamford Martin car to the very latest super cars of today. The book project has now started its final proofing and binding design stage and it has been a mammoth piece of work over 2 years between The Aston Workshop in the UK and Automotive Car Photographer Tim Wallace.
The book is a celebration of Aston Martin through their 100 years and is a major publication of nearly 700 pages of stunning photography from Tim capturing each of their significant models over their first 100 years of building cars, from the very first Bamford Martin car all the way through to the infamous DB5 and onwards to the latest DBS and One77 models of recent years. Printing will commence in 2015 and a limited boxed edition will also be available with the possibility of a signing event taking place with Tim Wallace and Sir Stirling Moss with the book.

Over the years Sir Stirling Moss has had an amazing racing history and has enjoyed some of that through his involvement with Aston Martin so to have the book’s forward written by Stirling is truly a fitting start to that pictorial history that Tim has set out to capture across the books chapters and pages. Stirling’s first outing for David Brown’s team took place at the 1956 Sebring 12 hours in Florida. He had tested the works Aston Martin DB3S at Goodwood in the February of that year following his return from a successful two race campaign in Argentina. Having agreed to race for David Brown when his commitments to Maserati allowed him to do so, Stirling accepted a signing on fee of £50, which was modest, even by the standards of the time.
The 1956 Sebring would be the first of six races over the course of the season that Stirling would race the Aston Martin DB3S, for the race, he would be partnered with Peter Collins in one of three works Aston Martin DB3S’s entered for the 1956 Sebring 12 hours. Given that the team had calculated that the brakes would last no more than eight hours and that the tyres would last no more than two hours, Stirling did not start the race bursting with confidence. Nevertheless, he made a good getaway from the Le Mans start and managed to hold second place between Hawthorn and Fangio, running three seconds a lap quicker than he had managed in practice. It was not to last, 90 minutes after Peter Collins took over driving duties the engine broke and they retired from the race. Happily Stirling would go onto win at Goodwood in the Aston Martin DB3S at the Easter meet the following month and at the 1959 24 Hours Le Mans race, Aston Martin would enjoy an outright victory at the infamous endurance classic giving Stirling’s one of the most famous wins of his racing career.

Aston Martin over the years have created and crafted some of the Worlds most recognisable and iconic cars and in 2013 the company celebrated 100 years in the industry. As part of this celebration commercial car photographer Tim Wallace was commissioned by our UK client Aston to produce a major book looking through the 100 years to celebrate all the models in the Aston range from the very first model that David Brown created to the latest super cars from the Aston stable such as the DBS and new Vanquish. This month saw AmbientLife photographer Tim Wallace working alongside the designers to review and make final amendments to the page layouts as the book nears the final stages before going to be published. Over all the final book will feature 700 pages of full colour pages of high quality photography that captures and drives forward the spirit of Aston Martin through the last 100 years.

car photography and car photography

Tim – “Being asked to create all the photography for the Aston Workshop 100 year book is indeed a great honour and its a project that we have been working on for just over a year now. The book will primarily be a ‘coffee table’ style book of great photography looking at each of the models through the history of Aston Martin design and endeavour to create cars that instil both passion and soul. Its a massive project and currently we are very close to completing the project now.
Some of the cars that I have captured for this book such as the Zagato’s VEV1 and VEV2 that are very rare and today are in the same condition as the day that they drove out of the factory gates.
For me personally it’s a joy to shoot these cars and we have been working with Aston in the UK and Europe for just over 7 years now so I am very familiar with both the company and the vehicles themselves which is a major benefit to the project for me personally. We are having the final design meetings for the project and we anticipate that the book will launch this year globally, I can’t wait to see all that hard work come together in what I hope will be a book that young and old will enjoy a like.”

car photography and car photography

automotive car photography

The book covers all the major models produced by Aston Martin through the years from the very first early cars, through to the infamous DB5 that will possibly always be inextricably linked to James Bond and the 007 books of Ian Fleming.
It also covers the most recent years of design and development at Aston Martin with the One77, Astons first £1 million pound car, the DBS, V12 Vantage, and the new model all carbon fibre Vanquish.
Designed and produced to be a general book for the market this publication reflects the history of design and how the cars have evolved over the years but is not a technical based book as many before it have had their base, bit more a book of simply beautiful photography to celebrate a iconic and world famous British brand that is as strong today as it ever was.
