We had a challenge, capture the images of Landrover’s show room in Perth and not do it when it’s raining or snowing. That was the instruction. Little did we think that we would have stunning sunshine and very warm temperatures as it had been snowing the previous week (it was early March) – nothing heavy but enough to remind all that snow can fall in Scotland at anytime – even August! The shoot for Zinc Digital was simple: to capture the interior, use of the space and the flow of people in and out of the show room – this despite Range Rovers and the like being a prestige item, which doesn’t normally result in a steady stream of public buying them. As it was, the show room was reasonably busy, so we were set for a shoot!

It’s not just about the cars but the people that make the brand what it is.
It’s always challenging capturing people at work…. most simply hate the idea, it’s also made worse by GDPR rules for the client and yes, the photographer! Commercial Interior Photography, Landrover, Perth (Perthshire).
Being discrete, combining workflow with business premises.
It’s always a challenge shooting a show room as a piece of architecture from the inside… it’s always full of cars! YRSCommercial, Interiors Photographer, Perth (Perthshire).
A photo shoot Landrover, Perth (Perthshire).
The problem with many a car show room photo shoot is the cram it in mentality of the owner. If they’re not saturating every inch of the forecourt outside with steel, they do it on the inside. Then of course with Range Rivers and landrovers… well they’re big, what ever angle you take and whereever your stand, they’re still big!
So shooting a show room to show balance, symmetry, architecture and a pleasant work space can be a challenge. It’s a matter of working out the gaps in the saturated steel and effectively using any space left to express the architecture.
Using high powered flash units is generally not on, as there is so much glass -normally everywhere and this will reflect the flash. The shoot needs to shoot the outside nicely from inside. There is of course the issues of flash glare on the vehicles – it’s not a good look.
So no flash. Your can try using a tripod to some effect, but to be honest as the show room is cram packed of expensive vehicles – it can simply get int he way – it’s value limited in cramped space. So it’s a case of hand held cameras, shot at the lowest ISO possible. Modern digital with such high rates can be ‘somewhat abused’ like this more than the older ones which anything about 1800 produced terrible grainy images.

Then of course we have to be careful about customers walking in and out – so it’s a ‘haul a camera bag’ time around the show room. We swap between a wide-ish angle lens when we can to a 70-300 which we capture staff working or engaging customers (from a distance!!).
All that’s left then is to capture the marque as much as possible from the vehicles to the signs.
