Heritage 2023 Photoshoot: Photo Gallery

Our autumn photoshoot has become an annual event for us, and for the past few years, we've been very lucky to have Ardingly College as our host and backdrop for friends and customers to bring their vehicles to. This year the theme was simple... Get some photos with Land Rovers in them! Read on, and let us share with you what we got up to!

A little smaller, but just as good!

After tackling a seventeen-strong lineup last time around, we had reduced the numbers to try and keep things more manageable. So on this occasion, ten vehicles joined us to best represent the models we supply parts for.

Thanks to... 

None of this would have been possible without the owners of these fantastic vehicles, nor our creative team capturing the moments for us to share. So here's a quick name check...

Gavin (Beetle) Heather and Paul (Freelander) Sam (Defender) Sam & Alice for driving (Discovery) Kaz (Land Rover Series 3 / T6) Bryan (911) Simon (Split Screen) John (996) Brad (Mk1 Golf)

Just like last time, we had a couple of pro photographers on hand, and Nick Williams from NWVT and Martin from Well Chuffed Media knocked it out of the park with their images. On top of that, we welcomed Ryan Clarke along to film and produce videos for our social media channels. 

From Heritage, Janice, Dean, and Don all helped to keep the day running smoothly, with Steph having curated the whole thing from start to finish. I guess I may have been of some use along the way if only to keep everyone talking and entertained.

Where will these photos appear? 

One of the common questions asked whenever we run an event like this, is what will happen to the photos once they have been taken? Well, they will be used in a number of places. Expect to see the large group shots appearing on our website, and the smaller group shots on emails and social media. Photographs like this are hugely important to us, to help represent what we as a company, and as a group of enthusiasts are all about.

Shooting the breeze

Get a few car enthusiasts together and there'll be talk for hours.... You'll also get some useful tips, and hopefully make some new friends too.

Pairs

When planning a shoot like this we try and make sure vehicles will complement each other, not only in style, but in colour too. When we get it right, it means we can get shots like this... Perfect for emails, social media and our website.

Behind the scenes

Whilst this whole blog is behind the scenes, some of the opportunistic photos we capture on a day like this are just as great, and tell an equally valuable story, as those we've been planning for months.

Off Road

We also took the opportunity to venture off the tarmac and gravel, and into the woods. The perfect place to capture this stunning blue canvas backed Series 3 and Sam's Defender, we're sure you would agree.
