Cars have always been a big part of my life and I have a great passion for them, and I also love being an automotive photographer in my spare time or when I'm not photographing interiors.
When it comes to shooting cars, I think it's safe to say that you can let your imagination run wild and get very creative. You are not limited to the confines of walls, location or light as opposed to interiors or architectural photography.
There are many reasons why someone would hire you to photograph their car, one of them might be that the owner has a rare or special car and they would like to have it as a framed picture to hang on their wall, in the case of this petrol head, a very large framed photo.
Taking good photos of a car is not easy. Many people are interested in cars, so a photographer needs to make his or her car photo stand out. If done correctly, automotive photography can be fun and rewarding.
Having shot in this multi-storey car park before, location scouting was a piece of cake, and with it being empty most of the time, it made the photo shoot smooth as silk without any interruptions.
I had this idea of a car spitting flames out of the exhaust and charging down in a car park or tunnel on my mind for quite a while and I was very eager to present it to the client. As you can see from the photo, he agreed that this was a super shot.
