Canterbury Prison was the location to photograph a very special vehicle last week, the 5 litre V8 supercharged Special Vehicle Operations Range Rover SVR...
Range Rover has tuned the chassis to deliver superior handling, cornering and a driving experience. Coupled with a uniquely tuned Dynamic Response system, this ensures Range Rover Sport SVR corners flatter and faster than any other Land Rover. 0-100kph in a mere 4.7 seconds. 550PS and 680Nm from a Supercharged V8 Petrol engine, an 8-speed transmission with super-sharp gear changes give breathtaking performance from this two tonne plus car.

I had waited a few months to photograph the SVR, their is a large demand for this performance SUV and when you sit in the sculptured sports seats and start the car up you can see why, it barks, pops and sounds angry before its even rolled a wheel. Canterbury Christ Church University now own Canterbury Prison, with special permission I was allowed to photograph the Range Rover, the rusty metallic, loud exhaust notes and overall aggressive stance of the vehicle fitted the location really well. Lighting was with a pair of Profoto B1 and B2's, the smaller B2 gave a nice fill in light and was perfect for the detailed interior photos.
