That’s saved you a big headache and bill for sure mate.
I hit a large object one morning on a dark motorway slip road. It destroyed my bumper

I was recently approached by a professional photographer who wanted to shoot my van for a company he’s commissioned to. I’ve wanted to get some pro shots done for a while so I was more than happy to go for it. I can’t show the actual photos until they’ve been used by the company but I took a few snaps with my phone while the van was on set as it were :)

I was strangely happy to hear a real photographer say how difficult blackberry was to capture as I’ve always thought that myself, photos (especially phone snaps) never quite do the complexity of the pearlescent colour justice, but I put it down to my lack of knowledge, ability and equipment.

Anyway, back to my iPhone snaps......

Great pics Stu. I didn’t know you had colour changing LED lights upfront.
Gives it a very devilish look

Yeah, had them in there for years since I had the custom lights built mate, I just don’t play about with the RGB features very often. :)

Fair enough mate. They’re a great mod I have to say.
What will the pro shots be used for? Will it be a car magazine?

Not 100% sure yet mate but I imagine they’ll use them on their social media platforms. There was talk of a magazine feature but I don’t know if anything will come of that or not tbh. Either way, I’m just happy to get some proper photos of it done :)

Ahh ok mate. I think it deserves a feature in a mag or two to be honest. It has to be one of the best vans out there. Looking forward to seeing the pro shots

That’s a proper nice caddy !!

It’s amazing the difference a professional photographer makes .

A mate is pro photographer & took some photos of my car while i did some work for him .

It almost looks like a different car if you compare my best phone pics to his pro pics .

Definitely deserves a magazine feature.
The colour is so different in changing lights/angles, it's intriguing to look at it as it moves ans the colour appears to change. Really catches the eye.
I've seen a lot of blackberry Caddys but something about the depth of gloss on yours amplifies the effect to put it on a different level.
