This week we would like to welcome Gledpark to AmbientLife. Gledpark is located in the South West region of Scotland and even though the business is relatively in its early years it is already the UK’s first BDFPA/SFQC Park Assured Venison producer, a true testament to their quality and vision for the future.

Gledpark contacted AmbientLife when they started to look into their online web presence and marketing, they had a clear vision for how they wanted to present their business online and needed high quality photography of their Red Deer and Pedigree Whitebred Shorthorn Cattle. Photographer Tim Wallace worked with the business owners to ensure that not only did we meet their requirements but also drove forward to give them some key ‘branding’ images that were the essence of their industry.

Tim “It was great working with Gledpark in South West Scotland, for me it was a real change swapping four wheels for four legs. Gledpark is a relatively new business but is extremely focused and very dynamic in its own vision for the future and has already started to make great achievements such as being the UK’s first BDFPA/SFQC Park Assured Venison producer.
Gledparks Scottish Native Red Deer live as close to a wild existence as possible in vast open paddocks with plenty of cover and photographing these beautiful majestic beasts was a real pleasure. For me personally it was important not only to capture clear imagery of the animals but also to impart their wild nature, the majesty of these beautiful creatures and their very ‘presence’ A vast majority of the time I spent keeping my distance and following the Red Deer as we attempted to position them into the prime areas for shooting. On the day I choose mainly to use our Nikon 300mm f2.8, this lens is ideal for this sort of work and really delivers very crisp clean images with a very low depth of field making it ideal to get full frame captures whilst maintaining a manageable distance.

Whilst there I was also introduced to the farms rare fold of Pedigree Whitebred Shorthorn Cattle – how rare – fewer registered breeding females than the Giant Panda! With a fresh breeze off the Sea and clear views out to the Isle of Man I have to say that I envied the lot of Gledparks breeding stock as I headed back down the M6 later that day.

We look forward to working with Gledpark over coming years and it is anticipated that within the next 2 months they will officially launch their new business website with the material we captured this week, we are very proud of our association with them and believe that Gledpark has a very bright and exciting future ahead”

Automotive Photographers Association – Interview with Tim Wallace

banner

This week automotive car photographer Tim Wallace spoke to the APA, Automotive Photographers Association, where he gave an interview discussing his work, his business within the industry and a little about hid background and where his roots started.

INTERVIEW WITH TIM WALLACE

APA Website Read the full feature interview with Tim here

APA: Hello, Tim! Tell us a little bit about yourself?

Tim: I work as a professional commercial photographer and I’m based in the UK. I guess most people slap the title of ‘car photographer’ on me and I guess they are right but in my industry the two things I am most well known for is my style and my photography shooting the details of cars.

“I plan to live forever, so far so good…” I’m 40-something but apparently 40 is the new 30 so things are always good and I have never felt better!

I don’t sleep much because I’m always thinking about what I can do to create something new, on a morning I often wake up excited for the day like a kid at Christmas just wanting to get out on the road and get on with it.

People say I have a wicked sense of humour, wicked, twisted, something like that! I would say that you’d probably remember me if we met and thats good in my book.

I have the most amazing lady in my life, Angela, who has always been there for me no matter what, she is my rock when I need the World to stop the spinning for a little while and in our house we use the term ‘Team Wallace’ a lot which always makes me laugh especially when our five year old reminds us at the most unexpected times that “Team work makes the dream work…!”

We look out for each other and we pull together through the laughs as well as the not so funny stuff. Our two amazing boys are Ben And Charlie, the latter being the youngest but he’s most definitely not a push over even if he is the ‘little legs’ of the family. Lastly there is ‘Eddie’ our faithful if not slightly eccentric dog, and that makes up the gang and all that is important in my World. We work hard and we know that life is for living, I enjoy living mine and do everything I possibly can so that they can do the same “I love the whole creative visual voodoo, the journey from A to B and the chance of arriving at C…” My work is often regarded as dramatic and to me photography is a process, you’ll never hear me mutter ‘it’ll be fine’ as that’s simply not enough for me. Life is short and I aim to make mine worth while and interesting with work that I hope reflects this.

My goal in life is to be myself always, be creative, be true and most of all improve just a little part of peoples lives with images that both entertain and sometimes invoke the feelings that I had when I shot them. I’ve won awards and I’m always of the thought that maybe they got the wrong Tim Wallace, hey I’m grateful always but never take myself or any achievements too seriously, life’s too short and people will forget you quickly. I jumped off a cliff in Norway a few years ago in a BASE jump, why?, well because it felt right for me to do that for myself at that time, I truly believe that anything in life is possible, work hard, be an honest person, tell the people that you love just what they mean to you as often as you can, and most of all be out there shooting because sometimes that’s where amazing things can happen.

tim wallace 1

APA: How did you get started in automobile photography?

Tim: I’ve always had a love for cars, as a 6 yr old I used to collect the ‘matchbox’ model cars, I had around 300 I think, never used to play with them much but I used to line them all up onto of their boxes and put my beside light on them so they looked cool! I guess my destiny was set at that point, I just never realised it back them lol.

tim wallace 2

APA: What camera did you first begin photographing with? What type of camera, lens, and equipment do you use now?

Tim: My first camera was a Nikon FM with a 50mm lens, most under rated lens in history, everybody should own a 50mm!

These days I shoot Nikon with D4s and a vast collection of lenses through from my favourite 24mm-70mm to the big 300mm. I prefer fix focal length and whilst thats not always practical with the Nikon system it is pretty much where I am with the medium format gear I use. I recently swapped out my H4 for a H5D CMOS and pretty happy with that. Lenses again are a array really from 28mm my widest that is not used that often in truth through to the monster heavy 50mm-110mm that will break your toes if you drop it ??
Which system I choose to shoot a gig with really depends on what I’m shooting, and what the final output is for.

APA: Among the gadgets that you own, is there something that you wish you hadn’t bought? Why?

Tim: Years ago I bought a ring flash, Geeeez what the hell did I bother with that for, I had the thought that it could be good for car interiors if used right, never did work that one out…

My lighting style is self taught as I didn’t want to just copy somebody else’s style, to me its crucial that your style is your own and that it evolves as your work does. Clients choose a photographer a little like doing a risk assessment, its all about firstly ‘are you able to shoot the job’, ‘are you motivated and creative enough for them’ and finally ‘does your ‘style’ fit in with their brand or vision’

APA: What do you feel is the most challenging thing about photographing what you do?

Tim: Hmmmm my top five would have to be:

Weather, as I mostly work on location
Planning, some shoots take a lot more organising than most people i think realise
Clients, lol – some clients are great and a pleasure to work with, some are hard work and flit and change last minute which can seriously impact No2 but that’s life and you just have to be professional and get on with it whilst maintaining a decent level of control.

APA: Can you name some photographers that inspires you with their works and why?

Tim: In truth I don’t much look at other photographers work too much, i feel that its easy to be influenced by people without realising it sometimes. From a wider point of view I love the attitude and work of Don McCullen, he’s a big hero or mine. In my own industry there are many who I think are really exceptional in what they do and have a clear passion for their work, that is a huge point in my book.

Frederic Schlosser is a photographer that I respect and I love his view of the world and his attention to detail, its clear to see his skill but also his passion in what he does.

APA: How has the automotive photography industry changed since you started?

Tim: I only started out from scratch 8 years ago after being made redundant for the 3rd time… In that period though I think things have moved and there are a lot of people out there who mail me who are looking to get into car photography, most perhaps don’t always have a clear grasp of the realisation of just how much commitment is required to succeed. I

don’t class myself as a great photographer by any means, I’m ‘ok’ in my view but I do class myself as a very hardworking businessman and photographer. These days its sometimes all about the quick fix and that’s not what people will find as a long term path to success, you need to build and build solid.

APA: Are you an in-the-camera shooter or do you use post production a lot?

Tim: I try to shoot in camera as much as possible, with the detail work thats pretty easy as its just good lighting really and so any post work is more likely to be paint correction and dust on the body that was missed.

APA: How would you describe your photographic style and how it has developed over the years?

Tim: My style is described by others as dramatic, I’m not sure on that one really, I don’t ever feel that comfortable taking about my own work as often I’m never quite 100% happy with it but then as a ‘creative’ thats pretty common probably.

I’m not afraid to use a wide open DOF and place the car or detail where it does not always dominate the frame, less is often more in my eyes. Over the last 8 years I have gained confidence in what I do and I push things more and more, lighting is and always will be my mistress and for me its the key. Photoshop is something I do badly in my view so lighting is where I put my efforts ! lol

New Photography for UK client that leads to 100% increase in new client conversions

banner pan

We’ve been working with Panache, based in London, over the last few months to provide all the photography for their new marketing and online campaigns. This week saw the team completing the second part of the project with a full studio shoot that took place in our preferred location to shoot studio work in the UK, Junction 11 Studios. Commercial car photographer Tim Wallace has been working very closely with the London based company to bring together a shoot plan and strategy that covers their core service and branding. All the imeagry that AmbientLife create for our client will be used to help build a new corporate web presence as well as providing additonal material for marketing and advertising.

Darren James Thomas
Managing Director, Panache –
“It was with some trepidation that we booked Tim to do the photography for our new web site; not because of any doubt in his work as we had seen the high quality of this, though because it was a very large investment for a small company like ours to make and we had to be sure we were going to get a good return on our investment. We are in the process of incorporating the amazing images that Tim shot for us into our website and are also redesigning our website based around his photography to get the maximum benefit from it. We have already been using the images to send to clients whenever they make an enquiry and I have noticed almost a 100% increase in our conversion rate since doing this – that is the power of Tim’s photography! The actual shoot itself went perfectly, Tim understood what we wanted to achieve and worked with us keeping us informed and involved the whole time, he worked quickly and effectively; getting the shot straight away. The thing about Tim is he is more than just a photographer, he is an entrepreneur and understands business and how his photography can be used to great advantage to market and promote our business. We are glad to have found Tim and look forward to working with him again in the near future to strengthen the work he has already done in helping us develop our brand image..”

Tim -“It was great working with Darren over the first parts of this project, in total we shot a huge amount of work but with excellent planning and preparation from both ends we were able to maximise our time and shoot plan to allow a large volume of photography to be shot for Panache, thus giving them not only the material that they require for the new corporate website and marketing, but also for additional projects that develop and high end client queries. The news just a few weeks in that the business has already seen a 100% increase in their conversion rate is just amazing and it just goes to show the power of high quality imagery used in the right way and deployed correctly through a company with a strong brand.
I am looking forward to working on further stages of this project with Darren over the coming months and years and I’m very sure that our client relationship between our two businesses will strengthen and continue to grow”

MAN London Magazine, Launch Edition interview with Tim Wallace

banner man

Today saw the launch of the ‘MAN London Magazine’ with a feature interview on the work of AmbientLife and its founder and creator, Commercial Photographer Tim Wallace. Tim speaks to MAN London and talks about some of his work over the recent years and his passion for what he creates for his clients.

Industrial light and magic

Aston Martin is the manufacturer all men admire, a fascination that started in childhood watching 007 films with your father. With their sweeping lines and menacing aura, Aston Martins speak the language of luxury, but few reveal the soul of these cars like Tim Wallace, Britain’s full-throttle motoring photographer.

Tim Wallace is the world’s most renowned and pre- eminent Aston Martin photographer.
He has been shooting Aston Martins for over eight years, and in that time has worked with some of the world’s most iconic and rare cars, from the £1m One-77 to the classic Le Mans DBR2 of the Fifties and infamous DB5 of James Bond fame.
“For me it’s more than just capturing the car, it’s about capturing its soul, how it makes me feel when I first see that specific model,” Wallace states. “Each car is very different and has its own personality. My challenge is to create the image that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you look at it. That’s my gift and my passion. Photography for me is not a career, it’s an obsession. Being out there shooting is where exciting things can happen.”

Wallace has even driven over 460 of these luxury beasts. You could say that he is a man who knows his cars, but most of all, through his work, it’s clear that he is a man who has a passion for his craft. “Much of my work is dramatic; clients
commission me based on that style. I’m often told that my work is like ‘art’ and personally, I take that as a compliment. Photography is about light and imagination. The key is combining the two to create something memorable.”

Tim – “I first spoke to the managing director of Panache some time ago and from the outset it was clear that the company had a huge amount of provinance within their market sector with large corporate accounts and some very wealthy and respected clients. They were at the stage that they wanted to match that visually within their own corporate web presence and through their marketing and advertising, in some respects this was a ‘clean sheet’ to work from and over the coming weeks we sat down with them to look at their requirements and how we felt we could visually get across not only the quality of their service but also their prestige and presence within that market sector. London is one of the worlds busiest cities and is home to some of the largest corporations and wealthy individuals in the country so it was important to plan the work flow out for these shoots so that we could maximise our time and budgets to create a library of photography that the company can draw on to make their new website but also to start working with immediately for corporate advertising and promotion. Our first task was to start shooting the individual models that they have available, mainly working on the interiors as well as capturing some high end ‘detail’ work to show the quality of their vehicles. The first part of this shoot occurred this week at a purpose built studio near London and over the coming weeks we will be continuing to work closely with the company to capture additional full body work and also some ‘lifestyle’ based work to complete the current brief. We look forward to working with Panache for many years to come as they grow and develop further to drive their brand forward even further.”

NFT – Port of London Tilbury Shoot

NFT_logo_RGB

This week saw commercial photographer Tim Wallace working with one of our long standing clients ‘NFT’ to create new work for marketing, brochure and corporate use.
NFT are currently in the process of having a purpose built facility constructed at The Port of London, Tilbury and Tim has been working with NFT to create some photography that captures their presence and operation at the port and places their branding inline with that of the port in a dynamic style.

truck photographer HGV photography lorry professional tim wallace 1

Our background working with NFT Ltd in the UK

AmbientLife have been producing commercial and corporate photography for NFT for over 5 years and they are one of our valued clients in the UK.
Initially Tim was approached by NFT when they were looking to build on their corporate image library, making changes to their content so that it reflected a more dynamic and high end feel to their imagery for use both in corporate advertising as well as at a point where the company were going through some changes to both rebrand the vehicle livery and also launch a new commercial website. With a fresh and high quality library of commercial photography the company was able to feed their advertising and marketing with new dynamic photography that stood out as well as utilising it for such items and customer calendars and as framed art work around all their UK sites.
We have been successfully working with them through out their business growth over recent years and as well as creating vehicle photography we have also been heavily involved to projects to capture their operation. This is something that we often find goes hand in hand with the truck or commercial vehicle photography when a client is seeking to build a strong brand image library and this is something that we have great experience in. This can involve warehouse, depot or operational line work and all of these Tim approaches in the same way, first understanding the requirements and then working with the clients marketing team to formulate a ‘brief’ or shooting list of whats required and how that can be achieved. We are very aware that halting work in an operational area or taking tractor units out of the operation, even briefly, can have a cost implication for our clients so we invest time to ensure that the imagery required is achieved with the minimum impact to the business operation. In many cases this is where working with a ‘experienced’ commercial photographer with knowledge in an industry really can make a substantial difference, not only to the actual quality of the photography itself.

NFT Distribution provides Primary and Secondary Chilled Distribution services to all major retailers and manufacturers through their transport, warehousing and logistics solutions and is a specialist in both chilled and fresh food, although they also deal with ambient, frozen and grocery goods. When a food item has a short shelf life, it has to get from the factory and into the store in the shortest possible time, so that the consumer is able to enjoy it at its best.

NFT estimate that there’s a one in three chance that the fresh chilled food item you have just purchased from the supermarket will have travelled on an NFT truck at some point in its life. To illustrate the tight timescales that NFT are working to, think about that freshly made sandwich you just purchased from a leading supermarket. It’s possible that your sandwich only came off the production line around 14 hours ago, and since then has been wrapped and boxed, has been collected by NFT and brought into one of the NFT depots, where it has been consolidated with other products and delivered to a regional distribution centre. There, it was ‘picked’ for that particular store, and subsequently delivered, unpackaged, put onto the shelf.

‘When a product is fresh, NFT ensure that it is keep it that way.’

Tim – “The Tilbury project was a massive undertaking from a logistical and photographic point of view and its one of those shoots where planning and preperation are very much the key. I did a recce of the London Port of Tilbury a few weeks before the shoot meeting with the Port management team to look at possible locations that were usable for our purposes and also most importantly looking at access and the actual working area’s and how they operate. In a busy port such as Tilbury there is a vast amount of activity when a ship berths with its cargo containers and whilst having this as a backdrop is great visually it also brings its own issues from a health and safety point of view with a lot less space to operate and shoot than you might think. The shoot was planned out and we completed that this week for our client who will now be using this photography to promote their new Tilbury presence through their marketing and corporate outputs.”

The Vignale

banner

The ‘Vignale’ DB2/4 is thought to be the only Aston Martin to have ever been bodied by Vignale, and as such it is a car that is of major significant historical importance, both to Aston Martin & Vignale.
Commercial Car Photographer Tim Wallace has been following is rebuild over the past 5 years as it nears completion.

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.
