It’s A Dub Life has been produced by club member Rachel Johnston as part of her 3rd year BA photography course. Rachel has been studying photography at the University of Greenwich and you may have come across her pointing her camera in your direction at many VW shows over the last few years.

It’s the marriage of her passion for photography and love of VW’s that has driven her to produce this book as part of her final year project. It’s A Dub Life is a 32 page, full colour publication completely published by Rachel herself. Each shoot covers a double page spread, showing both owners and their VWs, delivering a great example of the personalities within our scene. Although started as a photographic project, Rachel encouraged each owner to explain their own story and has included the stories to complement her images.[/vc_column_text][mk_image src=”http://paintscrapers.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/It-s-A-Dub-Life02.jpg” image_width=”792″ image_height=”400″ crop=”false” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” link=”http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/4949354-it-s-a-dub-life” target=”_blank” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”center” margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Even though this project was a lot of work Rachel thoroughly enjoyed producing it and is now considering continuing throughout the coming season, so I guess we should look out for volume 2 soon. After Rachel graduates next summer she has her goals set high and would love to become a commercial photographer, shooting features for magazines and advertising.

It’s A Dub Life is available in both hard and soft cover which you can order direct via Rachel’s blurb site.

You can find more examples of Rachel’s photography on her Roo 92 Photography Facebook page.[/vc_column_text][mk_image src=”http://paintscrapers.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/It-s-A-Dub-Life01.jpg” image_width=”792″ image_height=”400″ crop=”false” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” link=”http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/4949354-it-s-a-dub-life” target=”_blank” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”center” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
