How much would you pay?
« on: 06 February 2024, 07:53 »
This may have already been asked here but I’m curious to know. How much would you pay for a photographer to spend a couple of hours/half day/full day taking pictures of your car for you?

This could include a framed print and obviously all the digital images. Amount would depend on the length of the shoot but let’s say 20/30 images.

I’m seriously considering a career change and wondering if there might be something here.

I hope this helps but my answer is that I wouldn't pay anybody to take pics of my car. 

I like to look at my car (before I get in!) and try to keep it clean because it looks so much better when that's done, but I found it a bit odd when people had screensavers of their own cars and I certainly wouldn't put a photo of my car in frame.

That might just be me though and if there is a market I wish you every success.   

If you can make a living, doing what you love, then go for it!!

Like you, I very occasionally take a picture on my phone, usually to post on here when somebody starts a ‘Come on, show your cleaning efforts’ etc. but I’d never pay for one or have as a screen saver / framed photo.
I’m guessing if the OP has all the camera gear already your overheads would be pretty minimal (travel etc) so good luck anyway.

Why limit yourself to a niche market that would be unlikely to support you full time? If you considered motoring in general or motorsport, would that not be feasible as a career?
