Electric Cars

Electric Cars

Last year I had some interesting photography jobs. One of them was photographing cars for a local care home. It was Electric Cars to be precise and they wanted to quite rightly show them off.

This was something different for me. I have in the past photographed racing cars and sports cars at racing and rally tracks, although showing the car in motion ‘whizzing’ past me on the road could have made an interesting photo, I didn’t think that really fitted the requirements for this shoot. So instead we went for something a bit more in keeping with their usage.

I took a few shots out on the road, then concentrated more on showing the car in the surroundings of the home. This allowed for better positioning of the cars with the building and people.


Being electric cars it was important to show them in their recharging state and area.

This posed a challenge. How to make a charging area look interesting.

As well as the fact it was so bright now, that the cars were really reflecting a lot of light and the sky was looking quite white too as the end charging point faced towards the sun.

One image I had in mind was showing all the cars together. Unfortunately I could only get 5 of the 6 into this area, but this main group photo worked really well.

This image I thought also worked well as a website header banner and was really dramatic in black and white.
