Thought id chime in with some photos. I tend to do more landscape photography these days but would like to work on more car photography when conditions allow! Ive found some great car photographers through Evo, Pistonheads and Instagram with some really impressive work.

I seem to do more selective colour shots but can be a bit gimmicky so I try and limit it. Just need more access to interesting machinery and lighting equipment.














And my old ST that featured on here!

Pulled my Banshee out of the garage for a quick run and a few pics a few weeks ago. Still can't believe its 29 years old!

Mate these are mental! We’re these taken in a studio of some sort?

Been trying to get back into photography lately after a few years away from it. Quite enjoyed having a play about in Lightroom with the magic brush and various filters. I recently discovered this local road to me which was just as much fun to drive as it looked on google maps.

I miss living at the edge of Epsom downs and being able to pop up if there was a good sun set...

I shot this GT1 inspired LP640 for Driftworks. Two hours in the studio and managed a set of 25 images so quite happy with that!

If I'm up there I'm usually expecting to be busted by you driving around somewhere smile

I saw the LP640 pics on IG. They look great!

Sorry mate - I completely missed your reply (not spending much time on PH these days). Glad you like them!

They're actually shot in a messy/working garage using a cheap, portable studio-strobe and a big piece of white plastic as a reflector. The backgrounds are then created from scratch to suit whatever the client wants (or usually whatever I want).

You're definitely fighting more problems than you would be in a studio but to be honest that's the bit that still keeps me interested. The workflow is pretty nailed down now so it's not really any more time-consuming than a studio shoot too, although it's become a lot easier since I started paying an assistant to help me light the car more quickly. It makes the shoots a bit more accessible for clients as they're not having to worry about tying up a customers car and have it transported off-site either, which is good as it means more work.

Excuse the potato-quality screen-grab, but this is where the GT500 was shot. At least this one was indoors!



I'm working on a few others at the moment so if there's still the appetite for this thread I'll try to remember to post them.
