The Reluctant Mechanic Shoot

06th August 2015
There is a wonderful vintage car sales and repairs garage / museum not far from where I live at Hepworth, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, with the unlikely name of The Carding Shed as it is based in an old woollen mill. I had the idea that I wanted to shoot there and the owner kindly allowed me a couple of hours when it was closed to the public. Now I needed a subject and after seeing Pip Atkins profile on Facebook I knew he would be ideal for The Reluctant Mechanic.
I sourced a couple of props, a girlie mag and calendar from the 50's and arranged a shoot date with Pip.
Had a brilliant shoot Pip was really friendly and a great model, where else can you find a 50 year old male model with such style, experience, not to mention a fabulous beard and curled up moustache.
