Hi, I'm Matt and I'm a Commercial Photography student at Arts University Plymouth. I'm looking at expanding my portfolio and I have conceived this project with the purpose of contributing to this, as well as it benefitting the tourist outreach and attraction to the city.
The Potential of Plymouth
Plymouth has been dubbed the "Ocean City" of Britain. It is well known for the beautiful seascapes and stunning scenery on offer. But one thing we don't affiliate with Plymouth is the high end and luxury scene. This space is often reserved for London and the bigger consumer cities.
Plymouth has the potential to attract this market yet has failed to tap into it. Rolex, Apple, Flannels... these are just a few luxury brands that have outlets in the city. So why not bring together what Plymouth is traditionally known for with its tourism and these high end retailers through the use of elite vehicles? And more specifically, the Aston Martin. Many affiliate Aston Martin with a traditional British institution and the beautiful backdrop of Plymouth would provide some superb photographs and videos to promote the city.
I am looking to raise £2000 to fund this project. The money raised will go towards hiring a supercar and the necessary camera equipment. This project is supported by iMayflower and Arts University Plymouth.
