Cameras met classic cars in a rare treat for Potters Bar’s photo society.
Sixteen members of Potters Bar and District Photographic Society gained access to snap to one of the country’s most jaw-dropping car collections.
Studio 434, based in two venues in the Cranbourne area, is the passion project of Potters Bar businessman Roger Dudding and houses over 300 cars in a collection worth over £40million.
On April 6, it was opened up especially for the society’s members, who not only got to photograph the main collection but were given access to the new building and the rest of the cars.
Many of the photographers used the opportunity to photograph the immaculate cars in close-up, allowing them to show the quality in great detail.
Society member Ramona Fernandes said: “I loved it! There was even an old pram and a Dr Who Dalek there!
“We were allowed to wander freely amongst this collection in two warehouses, which was brilliant.
“The time passed so quickly. I was too scared to damage anything, even though we were told that we were allowed to sit in them.
“I did sit in the 1966 Citroen DS; the red leather seats were luxurious.
The visit was part of the society’s 70th anniversary celebrations.
The society, which is open to anyone who wishes to improve their camera skills, meets most Monday evenings from 7:30 at the Wyllyotts Centre.
