I met owner Jamie during a photoshoot of a Mini Cooper that was being shot for Performance Mini magazine, J's company had covered work on the car at his bodyshop and performance workshops in Salisbury. When I spotted this modified MR2 and started to ask Jamie about it he said that it was his and it had been mild modified, after getting the spec list it was prime for Fast Car magazine.

After a couple of months went by we arranged a shoot date and used Thruxton motor circuits paddock and pit lane for the car magazine photography shoot. I used four Profoto lights, the red on the car is really bright and I wanted to make sure that this came across in the photos as it was a mix of sunshine and cloud cover. The setting was perfect for this Japanese modded race car, the bright red paintwork set off against the pit lane and I covered a variety of interior and exterior photos. The car will be in an issue fo Fast Car magazine, can't wait to see the article and which images will be used.
