Outdoor shoots mean checking the weather, a lot. The forecast for our booked day fell flat first thing in the morning, so we cracked on and thankfully blue skies appeared around midday.

GM Coachwork Ltd are a wonderful company with the remit of creating vehicles that are purpose built around their clients needs, whether they be a local school, college, or need transport that's perfectly adapted to them.

It all started back in the eighties when David Vooght had the opportunity to follow a lifetime ambition to run his own business. Following an engineering apprenticeship at Westland Helicopters followed by 10 years in agricultural engineering sales, David went into business with his father-in-law starting up G&M Coachwork building minibus conversions. David soon took over the business and set about expansion.

This year marked GM's 25th anniversary and twenty five years on the business has grown to become firmly established as a nationwide leading vehicle convertor. While the times have changed the passion to develop and innovate new products will always be there.

“We were delighted with the quality of Tim's photographs and his relaxed and friendly manner which made him very easy to work with. We achieved all the shots we wanted to on the day and the results were excellent. In fact we had a lot of comments about the quality of the photographs and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or use him again.”
