Last year I was asked if I would create some photos of a vintage car. The owner, Dave, lives in Kendal, Cumbria and we arranged a date and time for me to photograph his car near his home.
The weather was perfect for an outdoor photo shoot but the car was just amazing! Dave had shown me a few photos of the car on his phone when he had called in to the studio but I wasn't prepared for just how stunning it looked. The car is a classic American 1938 Ford V8 Business Coupe and there it was parked at the roadside with gleaming black paintwork, whitewall tyres and lots of shiny chrome detail. It definitely has the wow factor and is a very stylish example of pure Americana Art Deco.
I wanted to show the classic lines of the car and it really looked great from every angle so I took a lot of exterior and interior photos. This image shows some of the period detail in the interior.
I loved the symmetry of the front grille too so I chose to isolate that detail in my image. You can see the classic V8 shape picked out in chrome.
