On the day of the shoot your car needs to be prepared to the best detail condition you can achieve. If you'd like it detailed by a professional detailing service, please let us know as we have arranged for this to be available as and when required. We then need to have the car for all of the day at our location in Cowfold Village West Sussex. 

The Location Shoot 

At the classic stable yard location, we aim to cover a wide variety of different shots on the "shoot" day. We carefully compose each photograph to capture your car in ways to exemplify its very essence as an example of classic automobilia.We aim to use our skill and experience to carefully compose each shot, to capture your car in a unique way, which begins to move away from stock car photography style & norm. Primarily as some cars are so "sculptural" in 3 Dimensional design terms .

When back at our "digital darkroom" we then check composition and layout to create the final digital archive image in 14 bit Tiff format with an adobe RGB profile. 

OUR EQUIPMENT

CAMERAS :
Nikon D3X: The D3X redefines high resolution SLR photography, whether we shoot in the studio or out on location. It's class leading 24.5 megapixel FX format CMOS sensor delivers image files with outstanding levels of detail and tonal gradation.
D3s: The D3S features a highly sensitive 12.1 megapixel FX format CMOS sensor that boasts an ISO range of 200 to 12800. 

LENSES: 

We use a combination of prime & zoom lenses cover lens lengths 14-200mm with the highest possible image quality. All our lenses are top flight Nikkor Glass.


  • Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
  • Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G ED
  • Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR I

In our opinion the Nikon 14-24mm simply has no comparison from other manufacturers, it has image quality to surpass many prime lenses in that range. 

The f1.4 50mm is ideally suited to low light shooting. The wide f/1.4 maximum aperture creates an extremely shallow depth of field and to render the out of focus backgrounds very smoothly to help the subject really stand out from its environment.

The 24-70 and 70-200mm lenses are equally at home in the studio or on location. This set of four lenses is all about giving us flexibility whilst maintaining quality.

PRINTERS: 

Epson Stylus Pro 7880
