View Full Version : Amature photo shoot

April 12th, 2003, 01:02 PM
Just curious...
A friend of mine is an amature photographer, and he's got some good tallent at it too... anyhoo, we occasionally go out and take pics of our cars... I drive, he takes the pics...

He wants to take some pictures of a group of cars (preferably honda/acura) all tearing through some twisties.. so I'm wonderin if there's anyone here that would be interested.. perhaps during a meet it could be arranged..??

So yeah, if this intrests you, please let me know. He enters his pics into amature photography sites, and if any of his pics are published he'll pay royalties to those whos cars are involved. Mind you, said sums wouldn't total much more than a few dollars...

Also, we're looking to make a video... Some kind of action/drama streetracing tale... this is just in the planning phase tho, but if anyone has ideas for plot, location, or any suggestions regarding it, I'd like to hear them.

So yeah, post or email me if you're interested.. ;) thnx

Well I dunno... *looks around...*

Yeah sure... hehe :)

If there's any meets commin up right quick here I could tag along and get my photographing fiend.. er. .um friend to join me. Take some nice stills and maybe get some of a cruise... then set up a 'highspeed shoot' for some other time....

Anyhoo, like I stated earlier, he just wants as large of a group of cars as we could get for our shoots... And Honda/Acura is just our bias... anyone with a car; regardless of condition would be welcome.. :)


p.s. - and maybe get some hotties in there too... you know ... B)

I'd recommend to your friend to not do any of this stuff on open city streets. Anything that is done illegally will not be used by magazines, because of their position of influence they can not condone a street racing world.

I appreciate your concerns.. :) However, we usually do this in places that are either newly developed or recently abandoned.. such as new subdivisions, or old parking lots. Although we never really seek official permission, we go to places where there would be the least hassel.. There was one time when a cop stopped to see what we were doing, and she said so long as we kept to the speed limit (which we did.. mostly..) it wouldn't be a major prob.

But yeah, my point.. we try to keep it as close to "legal" as we can...
