Car Photography Creating Works of Art

Car Photography Creating Works of Art

I have seen a lot of incredible car photography posts and also with CGI we don't even know if what we see is the real car or a 3D version of it. Despite all of the styles I've seen it's hard to describe the work that Sarel van Staden has done and shared on his Behance profile and website. His passion is to create images by using artificial light sources. "This gives me the freedom to shoot anywhere, anytime while creating works of art" - he mentions on his profile. The definition of works of art could not fit better his work. The simplicity and focus on details highlight forms and parts of the cars that otherwise would get lost. I especially like the Ford GT and McLaren ones but of course all of them are incredible.  Car photography About Sarel van Staden Sarel van Staden started photography 18 years ago as a hobby while working as a town planner.  He joined a photography club in 1995 and started attracting attention with his way of creating award winning images with very basic photography equipment and for his use of interesting light set-ups.  Invitations to address photography clubs all over the country followed. Sarel won National and International awards (3 gold, 4 silver and bronze medals in Austrian Super Circuit) and was published in the Photography yearbook for four consecutive years.

World's First Photo Exhibition using a Car as a Camera

In Photography, you are welcomed to a wide range of a variety of tools to somehow increase your workflow or simply change the game. We've seen things from aerial to drones but how about street photography using a car? Volvo Cars has teamed up with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and artist Barbara Davidson for a World's First Photo Exhibition using the on-board safety cameras of the new Volvo XC60 to create a special collection of photographs. Connecting art and safety for people to see the benefits of technology such as cameras and on-board sensors in cars. The photographs were first exhibited at Canvas Studios gallery in London’s Shoreditch this week and the exhibition will travel to other countries during 2017. Barbara Davidson is a Pulitzer Prize & Emmy Award winning photographer located in Los Angeles, CA and former staff photographer for The Los Angeles Times. You can follow her tweets @photospice and her Instagram. Video Copenhagen, Denmark. I had an amazing experience collaborating with Volvo Cars to create the worlds first ever photo exhibition using the #XC60's car safety camera. The project played out like a film production and all scenes were created for this commercial endeavor. Was really nice to work on a conceptual body of work which is vastly different from my life as a photojournalist thanks to all the crew for this amazing experience!   Over 1.2 million people die each year in road accidents around the globe. Volvo’s approach to road safety is focused on real-life traffic situations which the company has studied in detail since 1970 through its Traffic Accident Research Team. With this matchless set of real-world data Volvo’s safety engineers have set about systematically working to mitigate or eliminate potential life-threatening accidents. “We take a realistic and practical approach to safety at Volvo Cars. Our vision is to reach a point in time where no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car. We call it Vision 2020,” said Malin Ekholm, Vice President of Volvo Cars Safety Centre.

They are beautiful, expensive, symbol of luxury; aren't they really? I am talking about magnificence automotive cars, only a certain amount of people will ever be able to afford one of those. Actually, if we think just a little deeper, what's so definitive about these "exotic cars", I mean we can take any cars and strap the logo and make it our own right? Actually no, there's a reason why these cars are so pricey. I would say the quality and durability of shorts is the reasons why you would want to get a luxury car.
