CAR PHOTOGRAPHER EDINBURGH
Car photography in Edinburgh and Scotland
For the last five years (July 2012) my regular day to day photography job has been photographing cars for a number of local car dealers and franchises. I worked part time for three years then made the jump to full time photographer mid 2011 as I was so busy with y photography. Quite frankly this was the best decision I’ve ever made professionally.
Around Spring 2012 I was contacted by a company called Manheim who asked if I was interested in photographing cars for them. I’m a huge car person, I really really like cars and to be given the opportunity to photograph something regularly that I really like was great.
Over the course of the five years a lot of things have changed with the car photography job, most franchises and dealers that were with Manheim have gone solo (many reasons for this) while some have kept me on a freelance basis. My longest and most reliable freelance car photography jobs have been with the John Clark group and their Land Rover and Jaguar dealerships.
My job is to go on site, take photographs of their stock, do whatever photoshop wizardy is necessary (trust me, some of the cars can be really disgusting and I’m not targeting any particular franchise with this statement), do the occasional head shot, site shop and provide the photos ready for them to be displayed online.
Amongst the franchises I’ve worked with at various stages are Land Rover, Jaguar, Honda, Volkswagen, Toyota, Volkswagen commercial (vans), Skoda, Audi, Subaru and possibly others that I can’t even remember. Some franchises have utter bastard management (not naming names here) while other franchises have been a real pleasure to work with.
But I thought it would be interesting to share some of the photography I’ve done in this job. I’ve decided 2017 is going to be the year I do more personal things so at some point I will do some compositing with some of the cool cars I’ve photographed but this is my daily job and if you’re interested in working together I’d love to hear from you.
Land Rover Discovery Sport
I photograph all kinds of cars but one of the most common cars I photograph is the Land Rover Discovery Sport. I thought I’d use this section to show you what a whole car looks like when photographed.
Autogas LPG Taxi
A really fun job, I worked with Autogas who are the UK’s leading suppliers of LPG (liquid petroleum gas) who wanted to take photos of one of their taxi’s in popular tourist spots around Edinburgh.
