For long time I’ve had an interest in electric vehicles. With zero driving emissions, electric vehicles are going to help the environment – in that the benefits are clear – but what is it like to actually own and drive one. BMW loaned me an i3 for a couple of months as part of a promotional campaign, allowing me to get an authentic experience for what electric vehicle ownership is like. Over the course of a few weeks and after familiarisation with the vehicle, I headed out on a couple of photoshoot road trips. Firstly around the local autumnal wooded lanes of Leicester, working with a tripod to shoot solo is always challenging, but I felt really pleased with the process and outcomes. The next two shoots were shot with an assistant, helping with driving to enable more dynamic shots and allowing for a fast-paced couple of days. I headed for a long day in The Peak District, finding more autumnal roads and the incredibly photogenic Mam Nick road in the Hope Valley. Finally I headed to The Lake District to tackle some of the impressive mountain passes which helped to provide a dramatic backdrop to the images.
