You don't need to visit car dealerships to capture fantastic photos: Whether it's your car, friends and family's prized motor. It never hurts to ask if you can photograph your communities autos. I recommend starting the conversation with "can I photograph your car?" You may even ask to wash/detail their vehicle as long as they want quality pictures, and you can have fun in the process. Its a win-win deal! Find a local car meet.
Car meets are a fantastic place to see a variety of vehicles, interact with the owner's who are passionate about their car and to build on your portfolio. I've met people from car meets by taking pictures of their vehicle to ask the story of their build. As a bonus, the drivers might want a photoshoot of their motors. And introduce you to other events. Visit car dealerships
Disclaimer: figure out when the car dealerships have sales events to avoid limited space to photograph and lots of customers getting in the way of the frame. When building my portfolio, visiting one, or two automotive showrooms got me the chance to photography many thrilling cars. Yeah! Before you visit any car dealerships, you must look neat. From a tidy haircut, jeans and smart shoes. Appearing you've taken time to look tidy, showroom staff perceive you seriously. Most dealerships are alright with you photographing the cars, but it's good to ask. If the dealership likes your photos/your personality, they will refer you to the marketing to share your photos. If you had a fantastic time photographing the cars at the dealership - next time you visit the dealership thank them by printing your images. Conclusion
