Car portrait sessions are much like child sessions, only with less pouting. Your car is your baby, something you’ve put countless hours into, whether it was working to buy it or to restore it.
I share that same deep connection with cars and will capture the distinctive and nuanced identity of your car. There may be another car with the same make and model, but there’s no car like yours. We’ll talk about the car and your history with it. It’s good for me, as the photographer, to have a sense of its history. It may lead to creative ideas of how best to capture the story and not just the metal.
Car portrait sessions include two locations of your choice within 30 minutes of each other. Hours can be added for additional locations or travel to places with special meaning (e.g. the Florida Keys or St. Augustine Beach). We can also use your garage or a car show as the location. It also includes any desired photos of you with the car, and/or other important people to its history, like a parent, spouse, or child. Sessions do not include models, although the are an option. You may use your own, or I can arrange for them.
Please bring towels, soft rags, polish, tire conditioner, glass cleaner, and dust rags. Even the smallest amount of dust may show in a closeup shot, such as that of a fender, taillight assembly, or interior.
