Hi all! I'm Mike, and I'm a car photographer from Red Bank, NJ. I don't have a car quite yet, but for now my way to indulge in this passion is taking photos. I'm always looking for local events to attend. If you want to see my work, check me out at @carspots__ on Instagram. Criticism and tips are always appreciated! I'm very excited to see this community grow.

Hi Mike!

I see your a car photographer...  I have thought about getting pro shots done with my car (2020 Jaguar F-Pace).  What does a session typically cost?  Do you have predetermined spots in mind where you shoot to make the cars pop?  Do you also do motion shots (while driving) or only stills?

Hey Bryan. As of now, my photoshoots are free. I'm working on my skills and I don't feel that I'm ready that they're worth money quite yet. As for spots, I know of a bunch that are great. The stills/motion shot question depends on how much time you want to spend shooting! A shoot should take about an hour and a half (give or take 20 min). There would be a few locations in the same general area that we would go to. May I ask where in New Jersey you are located?

Hi Mike,

I live in Morris County, Nj.  You're based in Red Bank?

Where are the locations you like to shoot at?

I am located in Red Bank. Fort Monmouth is an excellent location. There are tons of cool spots in there, as it's a semi-abandoned military base. I will attach a Google Drive link where you can see some photos I took there of the family Honda Pilot for reference.

Hey Mike! Think I saw you saw you taking some shots around today’s unofficial red bank c&c. I’d also be super interested in doing a photoshoot if you’re down. You grow your portfolio & I can get some sweet pictures! I wouldn’t be opposed to compensating you if you’d like!
I have a 2020 Cayenne & 2016 Corvette in Orange. They look great together 😉

Hey Mike, welcome!  I'm also into photography, what do you shoot with?  I have a Nikon D5000 and D7100.  It's definitely a passion of mine, working on getting better with my photos.

@vcharmoy Hey Vaughn, I just saw this now. I recently purchased a Sony A7ii. I absolutely love it! I had a Canon T3i prior to this, and I mainly upgraded so I could start working on video. Do you post your shots anywhere?

@mike hey mike, it’s all good.  I mainly post on Facebook but occasionally will post on Instagram.

Sony makes good cameras....I shoot with a Nikon D7100, but I also have a D5000, I wanna start maybe doing video with the D5000.
