Hello I'm Keith a semi-professional UK based photographer with a passion for photographing vintage aircraft, classic cars and people
From an early age I was lucky to have a family who are passionate about restoring and driving vintage cars, both pre and post war Rolls-Royce's and Bentley's. Add my love of photography that has built up over the years then it seemed a natural progression to want to capture the people who own/drive or fly these classic machines. From that I've met some fantastic people and been privileged to be able to get behind the scenes
For the last 5 years I've gained more experience, and with the network of people I've met at events have started to get the behind the scenes images from smaller to major events. From such events as Imperial war museum Duxford's Flying legends weekend, Brooklands race track, Goodwood revival's event to the Victory show held each year I've been able to get closer to where I can capture the atmosphere of the times and share these with people from across not just the UK, but across the world. With the first images of mine to be published on the events list leaflet of a major historical aviation and re-enactment event, and the honour of being asked to be the official photographer for a memorial unveiling to the 490th Bombardment Group WW2 USAAF with a veteran pilot and the families of service personnel whom were deployed there during WW2.
I've also been extremely lucky with museums like the Lincolnshire aviation heritage museum ( http://www.lincsaviation.co.uk/ ), where the privately owned Avro Lancaster bomber 'Just Jane' NX611 is based, whom allow me access to capture images of the aircraft and re-enactors beyond where the public can get too.
The following kind words are from a RAF communication from the SEngO 238 Sqn | No 1 School of Technical Training | Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering "Noting how amazing the photos came out from the shoot I was wondering if you would give 238 Sqn the honour of displaying some of your photos around our buildings and in our classrooms ? "
My photograph's have been published in the Spring 2017 American Dames,Planes & Automobile's magazine.
London City council are one of my clients when I shot some images on their behalf for their Kenley airfield open day.
I've also been appproached by the Hurricane 501 project team to be their official photographer, which I was very humbled to have been asked to do and of course agreed Their main website is http://hurricane501.co.uk/ and their social media ison Facebook https://www.facebook.com/501Hurricane/
I've supplied photographs to both Bombardier Aerospace of their new business premises and work areas, and Bombardier Transportation when Prince William and the transport minister for Aviation visited amongst other work.
