Fair enough - I don't know these people.  Maybe you should be talking to their customers.

I know Mike and Drew @ Orange Lane quite well.  They get the bulk of mitsubishi's campaigns and get the type of car owners mentioned above -  people that spend dollars and efforts modifying and restoring their pride and joys.

probably best to target brand specific forums which have they type mentioned above.  Also, do some pro bono work first to build your portfolio so you can then show others what you can do -  let your work sell itself.

The only guys I know who get paid for shooting cars are hired by car magazines and work bloody hard for not much money.

While the majority of my shoots are for publications, some of the cars I've shot in the past were for private clients who paid me to take the photos.

The 458 Spider which I'll be doing in the next week or so is a case in point.

So I'd definitely say there is a market out there, each owner is a little different I guess.

But for me it's still a hobby and something I enjoy (the photography and the cars), so whether I get any business or not isn't a huge issue. I don't go looking for them.

So my advice for the OP is just start taking photos of mates' cars and post them up on the net and if they are good enough word will get out and you may get some requests.
