We do lots of product photography for the Guy Martin Proper website. Lots of hats, t-shirts, books etc. It’s all done in the studio using mannequins and white back grounds, pretty standard stuff that we do for lots of online retailers.
So it was a nice change to go and do some photos with Guy himself at his home in Grimsby. He’s just like you see on TV, a grafter with lots of chat and lots of cups of tea.
We were shooting a new cleaning product, Proper Cleaner by Guy Martin, both stills and video. For the video, he could just talk about it without a stammer or stutter as he washed his bike. No script, no rehearsing, just telling us about it in his own entertaining way.
We did some portraits of him wearing different hats, using the cleaning product, and just some general shots for use on the website. Here’s a few of the shots we came away with.
