Tim – “I would like to thank all those that attended both seminar events. The business class was a mammoth 7 hour session all about business and we had a truly inspired day with amazing feedback from all those that attended with 99% total on that, so that was very nice indeed. The following day we had a new group and took these guys on location to shoot the Porsche 911 S. It was a really great day with many opportunities to demonstrate different lighting techniques and how I use these in real life situations whilst shooting cars both inside and outside. I would like to thank Samuel from Light+Byte as always for helping to make all this happen and without him these events would simply not be the success that they are, also I would like to thank Timo and Daniel for all their assistance during the lighting seminar. Great team effort guys!”

Le Mans in its essence has always captures the imagination of so many people who enjoy racing and motorsport and commercial photographer Tim Wallace has been working closely with the RLR Msport team over the last few months providing high quality photography for both brand and marketing use online and in print. The man in charge of RLR Msport is Nick Reynolds, Nick has a wealth of experience running endurance prototype cars having twice run LMP2 cars at the Le Mans 24 hour race. The team also run LMP3 cars and have won races in this category, they are also running an LMP3 car in the Michelin Le Mans Cup which is a support race to the European Le Mans Series in which they also compete.

This is a passionate team based in the North of England. Their enthusiasm for the sport is infectious, drivers often comment that they are the hardest working and most dedicated team they have worked with. Their fan base is loyal, in fact you instantly become a fan when you meet the characters that make up the team, you get drawn into the shared goal of ultimately winning the 24 hour Le Mans race in an LMP2 car.
The car that could deliver this dream has just been delivered – the Ligier JS P217. There is a huge mountain to climb, let there be no doubt, competing against much better funded teams from around the world this is one of the most competitive races you could ever enter.

product photography and wheel photography

This week commercial photographer Tim Wallace was shooting some further commercial based work for our UK client Dymag as they prepare 2 new products for Worldwide launch as well as creating a asset library of images covering their motorcycle products including their forged Aluminium race wheels that have accomplished stunning times in racing at events across the world such as the Isle of Man TT.
Tim has been working with Dymag since early 2015 to create digital image assets that the company use to promote their brand marketing throughout the World.

Dymag are an elite British performance wheel brand with an unparalleled history of innovation and technology in motorsport which has led the way in wheel design and production for more than four decades.
They are also the first company in the world to manufacture carbon fibre wheels for both high performance cars and motorcycles certified for road as well as racing use. This was followed by the world’s first roadworthy carbon composite wheels. We are now moving ahead with a brand new carbon composite car wheel that will revolutionise the luxury and performance car wheel aftermarket, racing and OEM market.

Started in the early 1970s, Dymag quickly moved to the technology pinnacle inventing the world’s first 3-spoke Magnesium motorcycle racing wheels. It was on these very motorcycle wheels that the legendary Eddie Lawson won the AMA Superbike Championship on a Kawasaki KZ1000-S1 in 1981 and 1982, and went on to win the 1984 World Motorcycle GP Championship on a Yamaha YZR500. Building on our successes, Dymag expanded into manufacturing Forged Magnesium wheels, Forged Aluminium wheels and finally Lightweight Carbon Fibre wheels with an equally enthusiastic response from bike owners around the world.
Many Formula 1, IndyCar, Rally/RAID, Moto GP, Superbikes, Isle of Man TT champions and race winners have used Dymags, as well as several production Supercar manufacturers.
In January 2010, British businessman Chris Shelley rescued the company from oblivion and with the help of the original Dymag engineers and experts is proudly continuing the Dymag story with a focus on the custom motorcycle wheels Dymag is famous for. Their carbon fibre wheels are used by legendary World Superbike champion and British Superbike champion Troy Bayliss and we also sponsor Queen of bikers rider Maria Costello MBE. For the 2014 season and today Dymag is supplying several British and World Superbike teams.

Audi R8 V10 Coupe ,Car Photographer Professional of Ambient Life. Tim Wallace, R8, Audi R8, R8 V10

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.

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.

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.

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.”

My Journey – Talk with Tim Wallace – 9th April 2016
Described recently as one of the 10 most influential photographers operating professionally today he looks back on his extraordinary journey over the last 7 years that have taken him for the very starting point of his own business ‘AmbientLife’ to where he is operating today within the commercial industry, the iconic images that Tim has become recognised for and also looking at the decisions that he made along that path to carve out his niche within the car industry. Tim will be talking through some of his work as well as openly discussing how he started from nothing to build up a recognisable style and brand, the mistakes and successes along the journey and his own personal view on what is important to succeed within this very competitive arena today. A very frank an open presentation on what Tim sees as the key factors to success as well as getting into the right frame of mind to succeed in business as a commercial photographer and how today photographers perceive themselves and their work within the client market and perhaps how his own approach and methods differ from the more traditional approaches. A class that is not to missed for all those starting on their own journeys and also for those truly interested in being given the chance to have their opinions opened to a new way of thinking and approaching business.

Mercedes Live Shoot Workshop – 10th April 2016
Tim Wallace works internationally as a commercial photographer but is arguably best known for his work within the prestige end of the luxury car industry, shooting for such clients as Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover.
The work that he produces is both strong in its style and its appearance and Tim’s signature work is that with lighting of cars and his ability to create amazing detail shots for his high end clients of their cars for use on billboards, showrooms and brochures.

In this class Tim will be shooting a car live as part of his workshop and looking at how we can work with light to get some very dramatic photography using just a small amount of lighting equipment. He will be talking through how he approaches each shoot, identifying the problems with shooting cars and lighting them effectively as well as demonstrating different lighting techniques and how these can be adapted to shoot in different situations. The class will be very much a hands on class where those attending will also be invited to try out the lighting routines themselves and work as a team with Tim to really gain a base knowledge of not only how to light a car but also the mechanics of why and how the light properties can be changed effectively through the different ways of working with the lighting and modifiers.
