Award Winning Coventry Automotive Photographer


What is Automotive Photography?

Automotive photography (also known as vehicle photography) is the broad term used for the genre that includes photographing cars or motorbikes.


Whilst the genre can be particularly challenging, experienced automotive photographers should have gained the knowledge on to capture stunning emotive images. Often capturing the finer details of any vehicle they photograph.


What does an Automotive Photographer do?

Car photography is about using light to shape, and highlight the key features of a vehicle to accentuate the stunning details that vehicles often possess.


Designers spend vast hours designing and detailing vehicles over many different reiterations and it is then the vehicle photographers responsibility to capture these minute details and create stunning images.



Where is Automotive Photography used?

Whilst the term 'Automotive' is often only thought of in the context cars or motorbikes it can include, lorries, tractors or other industrial vehicles.


If it has wheels an engine and moves, it is a vehicle and would be covered under this genre.

How much does Automotive Photography cost?

Due to the different styles of Automotive Photography, there is no single answer to this. There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration, for example:


  • Is this a studio photoshoot, in which the actual renting of the studio and lighting needs to be factored into the equation.
  • The location of the shoot
  • The customers requirements.
  • How many images are ultimately required and in what format.


It is rare to get an image straight out of camera that does not need editing work, so this may need to be factored into the equation.
