Michael from Nishimachi Photography has taken some amazing shots over his career, whether it be motorsports, car photoshoots or portait/model photography. He has a great eye for detail and expresses his art through the lense. I have many amazing photos of my cars and me over the years. Well worth it!

Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions – Melbourne Car Photography

How many photos do I get?

I’ll take as many as you like. For cars, most of my clients ask for around 35 shots. That covers the key angles of the car; front, front quarter, side, rear quarter, rear, interior, badging and special features. If you’re selling the car, it’s best to get photos of all the features and things that show the condition of the car. I describe it all here in this YouTube video.

For portraits and glamour, 12 shots is most popular for a 2 hour shoot. This gives us three shots in four looks/styles/outfits. We can shoot for longer if you need more shots.

How much do you charge?

My services range depending on what you require and have inspiration for. A basic photo shoot starts at $450, and including video $800. If you want your shoot in a studio, they can vary in price and generally depend on how much time we use it for. As a general guide, a studio to shoot a car will cost about $1000 and a portrait session, about $450.

At the beginning of our discussions we’ll determine what we think is best to get the results you want.

What if I don’t like the photos?

It’s important we’re both on the same page for styling, look and feel of the shoot. It’s best to discuss your needs before the shoot, talk over a mood board and look at reference images. During the shoot we’ll take the time to review as we go, and when it comes to post production I’ll happily alter the images to a reasonable extent.

Will I feel comfortable on the shoot?

This really ties into the previous question. I believe good planning and discussion prior to the shoot helps us both. We’ll discuss the style and mood of the shoot, look over your outfits and costumes to plan which scene we’ll use them. I’ll show you the images as we progress through the shoot so we can make adjustments to pose and outfits to ensure we get what we cam for.

Can you get a Lambo for me?

YES! I can get a Lambo. I can also get a Ferrari. I can source any car you’d like. Want an old classic Ford F-truck? A race car? Whatever the vibe you want to give in the shots, whatever your brand image, it’s important you love the shots. So, during the planning lets discuss all the options.
