They may look like holiday snaps from a family album but take a closer look and you will see they are actually photographs of boy band One Direction.

The lads where captured on camera by Zach Guilar, from The Celtic Camper Company Ltd, based in Llangynog near Oswestry, after he hired out one of his bay window Volkswagen vans for a day’s filming in a village near Anglesey.

The five boys, who finished third on the seventh series of X-Factor, are currently on a nationwide tour and used the van for the opening video to their gigs.

They are seen driving around in the campervan before stopping at a beach to surf.

Mr Guilar, who is one of the Celtic Camper Company directors, was on the film set with the boys earlier this year. He said: “They were the first band to hire out one of our campervans. We met the boys and they were lovely. It was a good day.”

He said: “It was really strange to see our vans on there.”

He has five campervans which include two split screen designs from 1967 and 1972 and two bay window vans from 1973.

In the past his vans have been hired out to be used on Welsh television channel S4C and used by the organisers of the Botanical Gardens in Wales.

He said the vans used to be hired out to holiday makers but were now used for special events including weddings.
