Interest in classic cars and vintage car culture generally over the last decade has reached stratospheric levels. The new breed of classic car photographers are both uber-cool and yet remain totally accessible.
Social platforms like instagram, those platforms that really lend themselves to a more visual and image-led scene, like classic car photography, have provided the foundation for these individual creatives to really make a name for themselves.
Their work has always featured in the top online and print publications, beyond the usual trade press. But now, and in a way that we mere mortals would never have been able to before, we can engage with them and see their faces too, and get to know them as people, even meet them in person. Crazy business!
Classic car photographers (not just their modern car photographer counter-parts) are now rightfully being appreciated for the immensely talented and inspiring creatives they are and I for one get great inspiration and satisfaction from their work.
My top classic car photographers list is a personal preference, there is a quite a lean toward UK based photographers I admit (leaving room for another post or two), their images help shape my own ideas.
Some I’ve been fortunate enough to meet, some I hope to in the future but I follow and am hugely inspired by them all.
So, in no particular order, here they are, hit their ‘Follow’ links to see more of their work:
