The shoots with Farer are always some of the most fun of the year. For this chilly April shoot, the aim was to get an epic shot of the 1970 Aston Martin DBS driving under a viaduct with a steam train going over the top. Well, we sat for almost an hour and a half waiting for the blummin’ steam train. The road below was busy. 3 minutes before the train did come, an old chap parked his car right in shot as he wanted to get photographs of the train going over. I legged it down the hill we had been sitting on to ask him to politely move as quickly as possible, only to run back up the hill, turn around and see the train heading towards us. “TRAIN!!!!” I screamed down to the Farer lads, Paul performed an impressive Le Mans start that even the pros would have been proud of, Mackie threw his drone into the air to capture video, I grabbed my camera and began to shoot. No other cars drove past us for those few seconds. We got the shot. We were euphoric! The rest of the day was pretty much written off as this shot was such a success.
I now wear their gorgeous green Lansdell daily on my write. I can’t wait for more shoots with these guys in 2019!
