Hire a car photographer who is a passionate enthusiast

I have loved cars as a kid including the bedroom walls filled with car posters & boxes of car magazines. I have even driven a Formula 1 car in Europe, the famous Nordschleife & Spa Francorchamps.

As a professional car photographer in Sydney I will help you find an awesome car photoshoot location to suit your preferred style & vehicle. I take professional car photos for any type of vehicle in Sydney for classified ads listings or commercial use. 

I have seen car owners use my photos for wall art, canvas prints, photo books & framed wall prints in the garage.

If you want to maximise the resale value of your used car when trying to sell it on Carsales, Facebook Marketplace or Gumtree then the best way to do that is with professional car photos.

High quality photos can attract potential buyers to your car listing much better than poorly taken images using a smartphone. Our professional camera equipment & photography expertise can produce high quality images that well help you sell your car quickly.

“So I have sold and bought quite a few cars over the years through Carsales. Presentation is the key to a good advert – let the buyer see what they are getting, stand out from others etc and this is where La Lente help your car stand out. High quality photos, high resolution mean that your car will look just that little bit (in some case a lot) better than the others.

I recently sold a car that I thought would take quite a while to move so that’s were the investment in some high quality photos, a cut above your shaky hand iPhone efforts came in. Sold on carsales in less than 24 hours and I’m sure the photos played a big part in that.

The good thing about Paul is that he is in to cars which helps the process.”

“Engaged Paul to take a photo of my Motorcycle for Bikesales. He was very responsive over the emails when organising the photo shoot. During the shoot, his instructions were clear and easy to work with. The delivery of the photos were timely and very professional. Would definitely recommend La Lente.”

“It was great working with Paul. I could easily tell that he is very passionate about what he does. He was more than happy to work with my ideas on some of the shots on the day. His attention to detail and skills were hard to miss. Knowing all the right angles to go with different backgrounds and lighting helped in the amazing result.

I’m really happy with how the photos came out. Would definitely recommend La Lente to anyone.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is car photography pricing?

Car photography pricing will vary based on the location of the photo shoot, how complex it is and the style of photos you want to have created. A commercial car photo shoot might take 8 hours to complete compared to a carsales photoshoot that can be done in 45 minutes. So photography pricing will vary based on this and also the car photographer’s experience.
 
La Lente has a range of car photography pricing to suit different needs and I can take photos at some of the best car photoshoot locations in Sydney.

What are the best car photography locations in Sydney?

A car photoshoot can be done in a car park, outside a warehouse or even on a street. The best car photoshoot locations really depend on the style of photo you are trying to create with your vehicle. You might prefer a very clean magazine style photoshoot for your car – this would need a studio. Alternatively you might like an industrial style photoshoot location which means using a warehouse type area in Sydney.

I find car photography locations in Sydney once there is a clear brief about the style of photos you want.​

Do we do sports car photography?

Yes, La Lente can take photos of any type of car no matter the make, model, age or style. We have extensive experience doing sports car photography in Sydney for either static or moving photos even at locations like Eastern Creek Sydney Motorsport Park at a track day. 
 

Is Carsales photography with your mobile phone a good idea? 

Well if you are trying to sell a very average, low cost, car then maybe photos you take with a mobile phone might be good enough. Although if you want to maximise your resale value and attract the most buyers, then getting professional car photography for your Carsales, Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace Ad Listing will help you achieve that.

I have sold two of my own cars to interstate buyers who flew up from Melbourne and bought the car after seeing it just in photos. They were confident of knowing exactly what they were buying and being able to see every little detail with professional photos.

Carsales photos that are taken with a mobile phone will have difficulties capturing all the details in mixed lighting and typically most people don’t have a very creative eye to do the right framing or positioning.

If you are trying to sell a car that is very common or even something that is valuable and rare, then getting professional carsales photos will help your vehicle stand out from the thousands of other cars for sale online.​
 

Can the photos be used on Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace or eBay?

Yes, the car photos that La Lente provides are high resolution digital .jpg images which can be used on any popular car classified online website or marketplace ad listing. The photos are sharp, detailed and have the right lighting to show off all your vehicles best details so that you stand out from the other listings.
 

How many photos are taken during a photography session? 

We can sometimes take hundreds of photos per hour for any photoshoot booking to make sure we are capturing the right images & variations for your vehicle. Our photos are then hand edited and crafted to deliver digital images that suit the vehicle & type of booking you have made.

What camera equipment do you use to photograph cars?

La Lente uses Canon Digital SLR cameras and professional lenses for every photoshoot.

Can I change the date of a booking? 

We can try and accomodate date changes but typically this will mean your photoshoot session is forfeit. When we take a booking we block out the time and reject other bookings or job requests.

How do I get the photos that are taken?

La Lente does not use DropBox or similar services. Instead we use a professional photo delivery service that makes it easy to preview, select and download your photos as well as make optional prints. We also provide an option to have your photos copied onto a USB Key.

Do I get a copy of the photos on a USB Key? 

You can select this as an upgrade option. They aren’t provided for free as we need to purchase a USB keys, then spend time copying the files, packing, posting and managing the administration to get it sent off. Therefore we offer the personal online gallery as the initial option to get your photos which is free of charge and USB as an optional extra.​

What forms of payment does La Lente accept?

We have various options for payment including;
– Direct Deposit
– Credit Card
– Debit Card

Why can’t I get my photos straight after the shoot? 

I have a number of jobs scheduled into our photography workflow at any given time that are processed based on the booking date. We can bring your job forward if required & there are options for 7 day or 24 hour turnaround.​

How large are the digital files?

We provide high resolution .jpg images which are up to 5MB each in size which is perfectly suitable to most print, canvas or enlargement sizes. The images can be used for banners, posters or even wall art.

What parts of a car do you take photos of? 

The parts of a car that we take photos of will really depend on the type of booking that has been made and how much time is available. For a photo session that is for Carsales ad listings we will make sure front, rear, sides, interior, optional extras and full body photos are taken as a minimum. For longer photo shoot sessions we will either use multiple locations or set up shots that will suit the style of the vehicle.
