Follow Friday: Automotive Photographers

Published by Diana Tula · May 3rd 2013

Inspired by the Follow Friday hashtag movement on twitter we started a new feature on our blog. With Follow Friday posts you can discover new, popular and up-and-coming photographers from 500px to follow and add to friends. Today we are focusing on Automotive photographers.

Tim Wallace

Tim is internally recognized photographer and a pro in his field. Often he incorporates magnificent landscapes and staple architectural structures that reinforce the beauty of his main subjects — cars. If you were never a fan of this genre we guarantee that Tim Wallace’s fine art images will leave you excited & wanting to see more.

Dan Volkens

Dan is an interactive designer from Cincinnati, Ohio & photography is his hobby. The images that he posts on 500px are of cars only and we love them. It’s hard to believe that most of the images were shot at crowded car shows and we applaud his clever tight crops.

Ivan Barinov

Ivan is a 23 year old automotive photographer from Moscow, Russia. His photos are absolutely breath-taking. Take a look at his work and be amazed...

David Bouchat

Like vintage cars, good sense of humor and have a bit of fancy for bulldogs? Then you’ll love David Bouchat’s photos.

Steve Hall

For Steve automotive photography was an obvious career choice. For us getting a crush on Steve’s photos with speed blur was an obvious choice, too. His photos are oozing with crisp colours and love for speed. Let us know which one is your favourite :)

Jeremy Cliff

Jeremy Cliff marries strobe lights with cars and gets alluring automotive portraits. When browsing through his portfolio it’s hard to resists the urge to take one of the cars for a ride, or two.

Nigel Harniman

If you’ve been drained and needed new ideas on how to shoot cars Nigel’s work is a great source of inspiration. Nigel is a talented UK-based photographer and his portfolio has a great range of automotive, commercial photos and landscapes. So don’t waste any more time and get inspired now.

Ivan Nava

Washington-Born, Caracas-Raised, and Miami-Based advertising, commercial and portrait photographer sure knows how to shoot cars! Visit Ivan’s portfolio and go a journey touring US and France, while viewing automobiles.

Neil Banich

Moody, dark and powerful photos of Neil Banich transport the viewer to another reality. Where the life is dark and movie-esque and the rides are hot. Pick your own character, be it villain or hero and a car to match.

We hope you enjoyed this roundup! This is our first Follow Friday post in this genre and we can’t wait to share more features with you. Come back another Friday for more incredible photographers to follow and get inspired by. Visit last post Follow Friday: Roof Topper Photographers and discover great talents.
