Why choose us to photograph your car?
We believe that reminders of the things we love bring a bit of cheer to our day. We want to help you to show off your passion and introduce that aspect of your personality into your everyday living or working space.
Imagine that poster you loved as a child, or those photos you admired in magazines were of your own car! We create these images just for you; professionally photographed and presented, so you’ll be proud to hang it in your home, display it in your office or decorate your garage.
Why do you need professional photographs your car or your automotive event?
Many people are saying that this generation is the most photographed generation, but one that'll have nothing to show for it in time.
Hard-drives crash, tablets get lost, smart-phones fall in the bathtub, to say nothing of deleting swathes of photos to make space for that new app. Images are easy-come, but also easy-go … until they’re all gone.
As photographers, we’re passionate about print and about preserving memories excellently — not just for yourself, but for future generations. We love to give people something tangible, with which to look back on their special memories and to pass them down.
We use archival print techniques and products, and have carefully selected our canvas, metal and book printers to ensure only top-notch products. We hope that even when cars, as we know them, have become few-and-far-between; families will still have beautiful depictions of them for decades to come.
Light Painting Photo-shoot
This session takes place just after sunset and into dark. It involves a light painting technique where we use specially adapted lights to define each contour and detail of your car. It can be a fun and fascinating experience for people to watch as we light and shoot each section in turn. Clients are always surprised to see the resulting composite of the many, many images we create!
The session takes 1-2 hours and results in a single image. Location and positioning of your car will be agreed prior to the shoot.
The 'Hero' Photo-shoot
This shoot involves the most planning, lighting and logistics. After a consultation meeting, we will scout some potential locations before agreeing to the best one. We do full-body shots in a few different arrangements and angles and provide you a few 'hero shot' options. This shoot can be expanded to include detail shots and even motion shots — a real full-coverage event! An example of a two-car hero shoot can be seen here:
These sessions take 3-4 hours, depending on your specifications. The location and time of day for this type of shoot are very important and we'll gladly help you select a suitable spot.
Shoot to Sell
This package is aimed at those wanting clear, accurate and detailed images to advertise their vehicle for sale. Auto-trade images are done mostly with natural light and are not altered in post-production. To get the best chance for a sale, images must be sharp, well-lit, color-correct and comprehensive enough to give buyers a clear idea of the vehicle’s condition. This can be difficult to do without the necessary experience or equipment, which is where we come in!
We meticulously photograph the car from multiple aspects, inside and out, to provide images tailored to the publication of your choice. Non-distracting locations are preferred for these sessions.
Custom Graphic Art Posters
Using client's own snapshots, I hand-render vector graphic artwork directly in Adobe Illustrator, using a Wacom tablet. The car graphics can be placed on a choice of stock backgrounds or, as an upgrade, onto a custom-drawn background.
We also offer a selection of printed 11x17" poster designs in our online store. These are on high-quality, heavyweight matte paper and presented in clear cellophane wrap.
