Editorial photo assignment for The Financial Times magazine at Newquay Airport

This is the shot I got for FT.com at the Bloodhound SSC trials that took place at Newquay Airport this month. The brief given by their picture editor was to go along and get a shot of the Super Sonic Vehicle "Bloodhound" and it's current driver, Andy Green. I heard that the driver would be doing a handshake session following the trial run and so decided to take up a decent position close to the barrier and capture a candid moment.

About Bloodhound SSC

The Bloodhound team are taking the SSC vehicle to a South African desert in 2108 where they hope to break the land speed record by travelling at 1000mph. For more info on the project visit the official Bloodhound website here.
