I have quite a large collection of images of agricultural machinery so it seemed like a good idea to group a few of them together on my website. The pictures in this post have all been produced for editorial commissions.
The JCB Fastrac Icon images were for a story comparing the new model with its predecessor, a lot of the differences where in the technology controlling the vehicle so a lot of the images focussed on the cab.
The Merlo tele handler was a full electric model and the shoot involved demonstrating the machine undertaking the type of jobs it might normally be given on a farm.
An empty barn was used to shoot the vehicle which provided a less cluttered background and gave me more control over the lighting. I normally have a car full of lighting equipment for this type of picture.
Often there is no time to take posed studio pictures and I just have to shoot the demonstration vehicle at work. The Unimog shoots were taken during a busy harvest. A brief technical problem with the combine gave me a few precious minutes to take a few more controlled images.
The weather was so dry that the vehicles were surrounded with huge dust clouds. This gave me the opportunity to capture a few extra atmospheric images of the huge Case combine harvester.
