    Got into photography by documenting my own project cars. Taking pictures grew on me, and as time went by others wanted me to shoot their cars aswell. I've limited myself to shooting cars, but I've set myself a goal this year to get out and do something else besides automotive photography this year.

    Seeing as it's winter here in norway with sub zero degrees untill april/may, I can only show you some of my previous work. I'll try and keep the thread as light as possible and only post 1 picture pr post.

    I can start out with the hottest car I've gotten to photograph so far: a lamborghini diablo jota se30. A very limited number of cars were produced by lamborghini (read 15 some where...) and most you see are diablo's with a body kit. This is a real jota se30.

    Picture was taken outside a school in norway using a canon eos 400d and canon's ef-s 17-55 f2.8 is. Nothing else.

    Wow, thats a fantastic photo! Colours, contrast and composition are perfect. That would make a super calander shot, I'd put it on my wall.

    Thanks.

    The light is all photoshop ;) I posted this one in the "introduce yourself" thread, but I guess not everyone is reading the posts there so here it goes. Same car, another location. This picture is a composit, consisting of the car & ground, hand drawn background, and 2 different photos of some clouds (all my photos, ofcourse)

    Canon eos 400d with 17-55 f2.8 is again.

    The car was in a very good condition, and is a true classic.

    Thank you. Yeah, the lambo is a bit crooked, but it'll have to do :)

    This car was featured in a movie that's concidered a cult classic here in norway (norwegian movie). The owner does not want to restore it, as the car looked this way even in the movie.

    It might not be bright and shiny, but the car has tonns of personality.

    That Lambo is GOBSMACKING. Incredible colours, awesome contrast, and to top it all, a very, very nice sky (on both photos). The front-on M3 is fantastic as well, but I would personally have used a wider aperture to blur the house some more. The M3 in the car park (?) is pretty much perfect.

    That's one helluva portfolio you've got there, man. I hope you continue!!!

    You do excellent work.

    I would love to see what a few of these shots looked like before you processed them. I struggle with lighting myself having to do most of it in PS as well.

    I've only shot this one bmw. A guy with a e34 coupe never showed up, so that didn't pan out. I've got a e30 m-tech II lined up that I'm going to shoot when summer comes, along with a black 7-series that's getting lowered on some nice 20" wheels. Hopefully they show up! ;)

    Because my canon 400d/xti had a snafu of some sort, this picture is actually shot as ISO 1600 (!)
