Fashion at Flywheel.

My third year running the ‘pop-up fashion shoots at the Bicester Heritage Flywheel Festival was blessed with good weather. I really enjoy setting up the shoots for the public, the reaction over the last three years has been great. Talking with one hobbyist photographer at this years event, he said it was an added bonus to have the models on site. To quote him. “Cars, aircraft, buildings and fashion models all in period, what more could you want!” Here’s a selection from this years event.


A Flywheel Exclusive

The weekend of June 24/25 2017 saw the third edition of the Bicester Heritage Flywheel Festival. It was also the third year of the popular “Pop Up Fashion Shoots” that I, and my team of models run over the course of the festival weekend. This year, though the good offices of Andrew Ferguson at Historit, space in hangar 3 was given over so myself and my model team had a place to work out of during the event. During the first day of the event I was in conversation with Historit’s Alistair Emson and asked if it would be possible to have “a quick ten minutes” to get some frames in the main storage area at some point during the weekend. I was asked what I had in mind and Alistair said he would ask the question. At the end of the first day I was told that there would be no problem having ten minutes on day two and just to let him know when.

So, during a break on day two of the festival I took these shots with my model Lillian Love. I like the idea of the shoot. Out of Place, but then again, not so much. A splash of colour against the steel hangar doors and uniform grey car covers. Lillian wears the Fatale Prom Dress by the Pretty Dress Company. Accessories from her own collection.

My thanks to Andrew, Charlie and Alistair at Historit, Bicester Heritage.


Bicester Heritage Drive it Day.

Sunday 23rd April saw the annual Drive it Day at Bicester Heritage. The Spring weather brought out the enthusiasts in droves in what must have been the biggest crowd to date. Bicester Heritage managing director, Daniel Geoghegan and his team yet again put on a first class event at their historic site. The grounds of the Airfield Technical site lend themselves well to showing classic cars of all types off to great effect.

Below is a selection of images from the day and will give some idea as to the diversity on show.
