The Automotive Photography of Jonny Shears
Jonny Shears’ video edit of his grandfather’s film in the previous post was excellent, but I think it’s only right to point out that he’s pretty handy with a lens as well.

It’s easy to take a photo that says nothing more than “hey, cool car”, it’s something else entirely to portray a mood; to show the form, yes, but to capture the tension of the calm before the action elevates mere snapshots to a greater level.
