    That's pretty crazy to think, you must be due a re-shoot soon

    Dad still struggles with me doing it I think due to lack of structure and unpredictability of everything. He's an accountant (very useful!) so he's seen exactly how well I've been doing, and when.

    The car industry is tough at the moment so, for the first time in my career, I'm having to really actively try to find work and find new things to make me money. I've spent the last month working on a series of video tutorials for people to learn how to do automotive photography. I'm hoping to sell them on a pay per view basis in the next month or so, which is quite exciting. Also invested a lot of my money into new equipment which allows me to be a bit more creative with my shoots, which will hopefully make my work stand out a bit more in the coming months to new clients. Unfortunately this means my Caterham will have to be sold in spring to fund some of this (unless I get some big jobs before then!)

    Time to call Nick...

    When they finish putting it all back together including a full colour change then yes you will be having another re-shoot with it no doubt
