      Year after year, the pictures and videos start to get posted and people get butt hurt that their car didn't make it into any. So being a videographer myself I figured I would share some things I look for when picking cars to shoot so maybe it will help people out.

      My video from H2oi http://youtu.be/96hSuYkA1EY?hd=1




      1. Do something unique: Wheels, Paint Job, etc I know it's getting harder and harder to do something different when now weird and odd is the normal, and CCW classics are on every car, but do something you don't always see. (In a good way)

      2. Be everywhere: With photographers and videographers coming out of the woodwork to try and capture their own experience you need to go to as many meets, as many events as possible. Increase the chances of the car being seen and you will increase the chances of pictures/video. Simple

      3. Stage your own car: Parking lots are not the most photogenic places, photographers don't really want to shoot cars all lined up. Pick a spot against a wall, near a curb, under a creepy tree. Make sure your wheels aren't turned to really stupid positions, straight or wheel face slightly turned out is ok. Also if you can make sure the sun is exposing the side of the car, that would be photographed is a big help too

      4. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN: Not only the mods, but the paint, the wheels, etc. Yes photoshop is a great tool and can help fix certain areas on a photo or make a car look better then in person. But you can only polish a turd so much, CLEAN YOUR ISH!!

      5. Take your own... It's not a douche move if you take photo's of your own car.... it's easier for you to do all of the things above, clean, find location, get perfect lighting etc if you control all of those factors. DSLRs are getting cheaper and cheaper, and it seems like everyone and their brother has one. So take some of your own car, post them up. Just don't post 50,000 of your own car that's douchy, but one or two is cool.


      That's all for now, unless you have something else?

      I feel like this is really the key. I'll add one more though.

      6. Make friends with a photographer. There are thousands of nice cars at H20 every year, and even though there are hundreds of people carrying around DSLRs, that doesn't give you great odds of finding a picture of your car online. But if you make friend's with some of the photographers, you'll have a much greater chance of getting a pic taken. When I'm doing panning shots on the strip, I generally only take pictures of cars that stand out and cars that I know the owner's of.

      I generally don't even bring my camera to the meets.

      Deff a good one,

      Because at the end of the day who knows there might be a bunch of photos of your car, but if you don't know where to look or find them what does it help.

      I always carry business cards, and information for people so they can find their car

      That's a nicely put together video, and you've obviously got some skills in the editing department, well done!

      But I do find this thread to be a bit hypocritical. You're trying to explain to people how to make their cars more appealing to those shooting, but in your own video you revisit the same almost-stock B7 S/RS4's over and over, as well as a few other cars, that in my opinion don't jump off the screen any more than any other run-of-the-mill cookie-cutter car(s) out there. Granted, there are a few really unique cars in the video that have proven to be more popular among photo threads and videos thusfar, but they weren't showcased like the stock-looking RS4 on stock wheels and suspension.

      Just my .02, one car owner and photographer to another.

      Thank you and I understand,

      however that's where rule #6 #3 & #4 comes into play. Be friends with the photographer, Right place, right time (being everywhere), and make sure your car is clean Rare is also helpful

      That's true too,

      And I have a few shots of a gray modded 996 turbo and a yellow 996 turbo, however the video wasn't the best as they were just shots of them flooring it in traffic.

      Funny how much people care about there car getting photos. But your list is pretty much straight on if someone wants a photo. Or they could just pay us photographers to snap a few 😁

      That's truth right there.

      But to the op very good advice. My car stayed at hotel parking garage 90% of the time. Still had some shots taken of it. I have two photographers i use and in my opinion just as yours this is the best way to get your car out there.

      But we do love seeing stupid **** in pictures so y'all keep up the foolish stuff and people will continue to take pics of you.

      not exactly something I'd recommend

      But sure if you think that's different (in a good way)

      I personally try and stay away from shooting burnouts, stupid behavior, because I don't want everyone coming to H2oi thinking thats what it takes to get into a video. We already have enough stupid people doing stupid things at H2oi and risking the chances of the event year after year.

      I would put right place right time ahead of anything.

      If I roll into the strip and strap up (lol), I am going to shoot the nicest looking cars I see. If im on the strip doing rollers, and your car looks good, I'm taking a picture. However, best in show could roll by later, and I may not be there.

      As far as H2O goes, there is so much going on all over the place, that it's nearly impossible to catch everyone...I think each year all us "photographers" just do the best we can with were we are and what is in front of us.

      And, as said before, if you are someone who wants shots of their car by the end of the weekend, then contact one of the many of us to shoot it...and that way you wont get your car parked beside others, you'll get nice private ones.

      so spraybombing a bunch of squares onto a r32 gets you into photos and videos?

      or how about a purple honda hatch that nobody should give a **** about somehow ends up in every photo batch and video batch

      no...

      CLEAN cars that FLOW should be making it into photos and videos .. i see some of these photo threads and i wonder what the camera operator was smoking for them to WANT to take shots of certain cars

      timing is everything at a show like this .. i drove the strip back and forth back and forth friday-monday yet i havent seen one roller on the strip .. i honestly dont care, cause i was giving the people on the corners what they wanted .. 3.2 liters of boosted fury coming out of a side exit ..

      I somehow missed seeing a TON of cars i was looking forward to seeing .. you cant be everywhere at once

      you shot my wheels @2 minutes in your video .. why not my bay though ... I put a TON of time and money into it to make it unique and give it a WHOA WTF factor yet you shot a clip of my work equips? Next time you see a gold turbo let me know..

      One thing I will note, as I ran around and took pictures/shot video during the weekend. Even if the car was amazing, if there was a crowd swarming around your bay/interior/car in general at the time that I was passing by, it wasn't getting shot. And that has nothing to do with me thinking it wasn't worth my time, but with the amount of time during the day, and the amount of **** going on, the show must go on...so to speak.

      I can't tell you how much time I spent on my knees, with the lens pointed at the front of a car, waiting for a crowd to move, or for people to stop walking in front of the camera. It's not their fault, but it's difficult.



      P.S your car is fuggin dope

      I do try and show clean unique cars, and say what you want that squared R32 was different, it didn't look bad. Sure it wasn't the time spent that you did under your engine, but driving around the strip you could see it from a mile away.

      I didn't shoot nor will I ever shoot the purple civics lol and I think a lot of people shot it because all of the talk last year surrounding a purple civic and why it was there etc etc.

      Also another thing I saw your car at the show, but didn't see it at any other meet, no other event, or even driving on the strip...

      Next time before H2Oi email me like a lot of people did and lets set up some private shoots, like I did with the Red RS4 and the other two RS4s.

      +1

      Too many people crowding around your engine bay otherwise I would have, lol and I can't sit there for 30 minutes to get a clear shot, I have a lot to try and get in and see.

      But hey atleast your wheels got in!

      Not true. Scott brought his yellow 996TT it's quite modded. Seen him in quite a few videos too.

      you shot my wheels @2 minutes in your video .. why not my bay though ... I put a TON of time and money into it to make it unique and give it a WHOA WTF factor yet you shot a clip of my work equips? Next time you see a gold turbo let me know..
      You sound a little butthurt

      Thanks, it was fun and it peels off. For the record I have clean cars, my cabrio placed last year at H20 and I saw one pic of it, and that was only due to my wife putting her feet on the dash.

      I am in the middle of shaving my bay on the cabrio now.. its a ton of very hard work.. unless you do it, you can never really apreciate the work. I can honestly say the R32 was way more fun and interesting to see peoples reactions.

      this is list is pretty good. usually if i don't shoot a car it's because it's in a bad spot or there are too many people swarming it.

      I hear yah. On two separate occasions I watched two different people take photos of my car, once at the hotel and once on the strip rolling...I even aired out for one of them Both had Canon SLR's with what looked like 24-70 L's, I have yet to find either of those pictures.

      Another thing you have to remember everyone.

      A photographer will take thousands of photos during an event like H2oi and takes a long time to go through them. When there are THAT many of them they will be selective of their favorite stuff.

      Thats where some of my tips come into play, if you staged your car, it's clean and the shot has potential they won't pass it up while editing their batch of photo's and most likely you will see it. But if it's just in a parking lot and parked there, you probably will get skipped during the editing process.

      Just because a guy snaps a shot of your car with his expensive camera/gear doesn't mean a thing.

      Another thing when meeting or talking to the photographer will help, if he KNOWS you are going to be looking for shots of your car, or help him promote his work. He will without a doubt edit even the most craptastic shot of your ride to make you happy. Because well... you met him/her and hopefully you were nice.

      this. also, not ever shot comes out. sure their digital and can be reviewed immediately afteward, but sometimes things are visible in larger format that ruin the shot (i.e. slightly out of focus).

      and it's always nice when people are outwardly receptive to having their cars shot. i (we?) don't necessarily want a big hug or anything awkward, but a 'hey thanks for taking a shot of my car, is there a place where you'll be uploading them?' is always well received. you could always give them an email address too if you really want the shots. i think most photo people would be open to that.

      Yup without a doubt I don't mind, this is even how I met a lot of my really good friends now. Meets, events taking pictures talking on forums .. just talking.

      Were either of those occasions at 61st Street? I was only out there on Friday for a few hours in the afternoon but got about 1100 'decent' shots. I was shooting with a Canon 40d and a 24-70 L lens so that's why I ask... I have to admit that I shot pretty much any car I thought might be there for the event whether they were VAG or non VAG, show worthy or not. I know people like to see shots of their cars in action on the strip so I just sat/stood there and clicked away on whatever showed up through the viewfinder

      My editing skills leave much to be desired learning how to use p-shop is on my list

      if you want a car to be shot or whatever just pay to have someone do it and that is it..
      Weren't you the one that ruined a 911 turbo with ridiculous negative camber and lowering it on the ground?

      I'd have taken a photo for my own collection if it weren't ruined.
