MDB Images was set up in late June 2012 and was primarily made to display pictures I had taken at automotive shows and meets, this soon changed from this to taking photos of mine and close friend’s cars which provided practice. As my skills developed and progressed people began to request shoots via the images I had posted on various media sites, from this I now provide full photo shoots for a variety of purposes and clients.
My first DSLR camera was a second hand Canon 400D with a standard 18-55mm Lens and a few filters which was bought June 2012, this was bought as a starter camera to get me used to using a proper DSLR as my camera before this was only a Fujiifilm bridge camera. As my passion in photography grew, so did my range of equipment including lenses and flash set ups. This then gave me more opportunity and potential to try different areas of photography, which allowed MDB images grow and become more popular. Because of this I knew it was inevitable that a new camera body was needed to improve the overall quality of my images. In late 2012 the plunge was taken to get a new camera body, and I now have a Canon 60D. While getting to grips with the new systems on the camera body, I experimented with creating videos and developed my understanding for shooting high speed moving vehicles.
Since early 2013 my equipment list has kept on growing with: more flashes, so that I can now provide night/indoor shoots, a moving car rig, which has begun to be created which will allow for moving car shots, and a slider for video footage.
Now MDB Images can provide photo and video shoots, from single cars to automotive events. I am now also one of a few UK photographers doing exclusive shoots for Slambox, and I also have other regular clients.
