Brad's GS


Shot with Hasselblad 500C on expired Fuji 120 film

I photographed this GS150 earlier in March this year, after being asked to by Andy Gillard, editor/publisher of ScooterNova magazine for an upcoming feature he was writing. This stunning Andre Baldet style VS5 has been immaculately refurbished and restored jointly by The London Scooter Bodyshop and Retrospective Scooters and has been treated to a 12V Pinasco ignition system and upgraded Dellorto carb. Now that Issue 3 of ScooterNova magazine has officially landed, you can read Andy's full write-up by buying the latest issue or subscribing here

You can also view the full set of film shots I took on my Olympus OM-2N and a friend's Hasselblad 500C here The larger negatives produced by the 120 film in the Hasselblad 500C give an increased clarity and detail compared to the 35mm film used in my Olympus OM-2N - making the 500C an ideal camera to shoot such an iconic subject. It is a very special camera and a joy to use but the frames are very precious with only twelve in each roll of 120 film; making shooting a very timely and considered process. The resulting square photographs show up perfectly the glass-like paintwork, painstakingly matched and expertly laid on by Dave Maher of The London Scooter Bodyshop

Thanks to ScooterNova magazine, The London Scooter Bodyshop, Retrospective Scooters and owner Bradley Hall for letting me photograph this jaw-dropping GS ; }
