Bus Life book  Documenting the creation of "Bus Life" - a visual led 'coffee table book' of characters and their camper vans across the UK & Europe.

Meet Richard and his bus 'The 15 window' "Our family had grown up,we realised that if we were going to have our dream of owning a vw camper van it was now or never. Our research lead us to a 1967 split so we didn't have to change 6volt to 12 but ended up with a 1961 15 window German camper.We bought a right hand Devon interior in bits for a template that we could convert to a left hand and make new sections which took 6months to complete due to a part time basis because of work commitments.What we most love about vw campers are that no two vans are the same, they have many different variations just like the owners .Travelling the uk was one of our most memorable trips, last year we went to volkspower vw show at Redcar then straight down to Cornwall spending 5days/nights before going to Edale for 2nights. We managed to get tickets for bug jam 30 (3nights4days) and had a fab time and the van never missed a beat. Our van always makes us happy, we cannot help travelling without a big smile on our faces whatever the weather." #buslifebook #vanlife #travel #camper #roadtrip #volkswagen #vwbus #camping #adventure #vwcamper #vwlove #wanderlust #vanlifediaries #vwvan #explore #lifestyle #photographer #splitscreen #camperlife #outdoorlife #vwlife #photoshoot #summer #travelblog #behindthescenes #instagood #bus #type2 #instadaily

Everybody I have met so far on this little adventure of mine has expressed that when you're sat behind the wheel on the open road there is no better feeling! โœŒ๐Ÿป#buslifebook #vanlife #travel #camper #roadtrip #volkswagen #vwbus #camping #adventure #vwcamper #vwlove #wanderlust #vanlifediaries #vwvan #explore #lifestyle #photographer #splitscreen #camperlife #outdoorlife #vwlife #photoshoot #summer #travelblog #behindthescenes #instagood #bus #type2 #instadaily

Meet Andy and Gill and their bus 'Da Boy' "This is us with our much loved and often used 1965 VW splitty "Da Boy" We adopted him in 2008 when we settled on a camper instead of a mortgage. We've done lots of work on him over the years to get things right and keep him on the road,now he's 52 years old he could do with his bodywork tidying up and a new coat of paint to freshen him up. We love the freedom he gives us,being able to to just go and stay somewhere without planning or booking,
we use him as much as possible whatever the weather,in winter we'll spend the whole day in our back yard AKA the peak district with a great view toasty warm with the fire on,home from home we love it. Our Wedding and honeymoon was so special,after enjoying Busfest in Malvern we went down to Salisbury to see the wonderful Stone henge and the many other sights in the area. This was fun as his starter motor died so we'd either park on a hill so we could bump start him,or push him to get him going. We never have a bad day with him he always makes us happy when we're out in him. He brings so many smiles and waves from people everywhere we go,and gives us a compact relaxing santuary. Our motto "dont die with any fun in the bank" use it,laugh,love and explore" #buslifebook #vanlife #travel #camper #roadtrip #volkswagen #vwbus #camping #adventure #vwcamper #vwlove #wanderlust #vanlifediaries #vwvan #explore #lifestyle #photographer #splitscreen #camperlife #outdoorlife #vwlife #photoshoot #summer #travelblog #behindthescenes #instagood #bus #type2 #instadaily

This is Kelly! She was setting up hers and her husbands van (Bertie) in front of the church where they got married.

Shortly after this shoot we all sat on the back of Ashes bus 'The Bullet' and drank a few cold beers to celebrate a good shot! It's a hard life! ๐Ÿบ #buslifebook #vanlife #travel #camper #roadtrip #volkswagen #vwbus #camping #adventure #vwcamper #vwlove #wanderlust #vanlifediaries #vwvan #explore #lifestyle #photographer #splitscreen #camperlife #outdoorlife #vwlife #photoshoot #summer #travelblog #behindthescenes #instagood #bus #type2 #instadaily

Meet Jim and his shiny bus 'Spud' "I started my love affair with all things VW whilst at college training to be a mechanic. The lecturer droned on about how bad air cooled engines were. The rebel in me thought otherwise. I owned 3 beetles and a bay window camper before we bought this bus. After being without a camper for a while and getting fed up of putting up a tent, we set about putting a wish list together. It had to be a Splitscreen, one we could put our mark on and RHD. We saw the advert on the splitscreen van club web site and rang straight away. The bus was purchased basically at first sight. The bus was nicknamed Spud before we bought him as it was painted in a rusty red colour and looked like a giant King Edward! Spud is a 1966 13 window deluxe. After running it for a few years we decided to have the bus restored in 2013- being a U.K. But it turned out to be a bigger job than we anticipated. We had it repainted in the original factory colours. The interior was chosen to complement the colours but with a more up to date feel. We enjoy every thing about owning an old Volkswagen. The way people just have a fondness for them and stop to ask me about the bus or wave at us, but camping with friends is what summer is all about" #buslifebook #vanlife #travel #camper #roadtrip #volkswagen #vwbus #camping #adventure #vwcamper #vwlove #wanderlust #vanlifediaries #vwvan #explore #lifestyle #photographer #splitscreen #camperlife #outdoorlife #vwlife #photoshoot #summer #travelblog #behindthescenes #instagood #bus #type2 #instadaily
