    Car photographer looking for cars to photograph

    Hi folks,

    My name is Alex, and I am posting this as an amateur car photographer. I have been focusing on photographing cars for a year now, with a fairly unusual style and technique.

    For the most part I have been photographing my own car (a Golf Mk6 118 ). On occasion I have had the opportunity to photograph friend's cars as well (far more interesting than my own ).

    I invite you to have a look at what I do here:

    A couple of very recent shoots...
    SLK 55 AMG


    My Golf 118 TSI


    I am posting this because I am looking for more cars to photograph.

    Primarily, in the context of this post, I am after Golf Mk6 R and Scirocco R examples, be they stock or modified. That said, I'm open to any car that is interesting. If you love your car, I'm sure there's something interesting about it.

    This is how it works:
    - Each shoot takes between 1 to 3 hours for a single photograph. Following that, I take another 4 to 8 hours to process and produce the final result.
    - My technique requires that the shoot be done in darkness. This is not a studio shoot. It is a form of light painting, hence the need for darkness. Message me, if you're interested, and I can provide you with a YouTube link of a time-lapse of a recent shoot I did.
    - This is not a commercial venture. There is no financial aspect to it. The car owner volunteers his/her time and car for a few hours, and in return I provide full resolution JPG and TIFF files (good for wallpaper, social sharing, or print).
    - Of course, I only shoot cars that I am interested in.

    Typically I do these shoots in my own building's car park. It provides some interesting hints of an industrial look. Plus, I am familiar with the environment and can control it. If the car owner has an alternate suggestion, I am happy to discuss it for suitability and feasibility.

    I live in Toorak, VIC. This means that either the car needs to be driven here, or the preferred alternate location needs to be within driving distance. For a great car, I am willing to travel considerable distance, but we'd need to at least be inside VIC .

    So, that's about it.

    I love cars (I am particularly fond of the aforementioned Mk6 Golf R and Scirocco R ) and photography, so I do this simply for the love of it. It's a good creative outlet for me. Please look at my work. If you are interested, and you believe we can work together, please feel free to reply, or message me, to discuss.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.


    Alex

    Car photographer looking for cars to photograph

    I always up for more shots. I love the technique. My MKV Golf GTI really isn't ready yet for photos as I still need wheels to finish the project, but happy to donate some time to your cause with my MPS



    Photographers using this technique hate my car, simply because it's black and has some of weirdest lines ever, but if you want a challenge, again happy to set up a date and time

    Hi there, I'd be interested in this. Happy to come to you, would be great to discuss ideas and techniques, I've been fooling around with lightpainted cars as well, you can look at some pics I took of my Golf here which look very different to yours.

    It's too bad you're Melbourne based because I would love a picture like this of my car!

    Hey folks,

    The response I received from a couple of casting calls, like this one, has been pretty good. I'm sharing the results below for your viewing pleasure:

    - All-black VW Golf R Mk6


    - White BMW E46 M3


    - Red Mercedes A250


    I'll post more as they come.

    I am still looking for more cars. If you're keen, get in touch.
