1. Tell us a little bit about you:

Jev: Hallo, I’m Jevgeniy but you can call me Jev, Currently 26 and with Russian roots. Living in Belgium and working hard on a few projects, one of which is Photography.

img_19071 img_143722222222_virtualrig_render_015ss

2. Did you go to school to study photography?

Jev: I studied photography mostly with trial and error. There are times when you make that shot and you think I’m the photo-god. But when you look at it 2 weeks later, it’s like, man did I make this thing?

There is no school that can teach you the way of a true photographer, you have to own a certain amount of feel, and lots of patience.

img_162722222222 img_12711

3. How long have you been a photographer?

Jev: I think it has to be about 7 – 8 years by now. All of that time I’ve mostly photographed landscapes. Almost for a year now, I’m shooting cars and interiors.

4. Do You remember Your first photography? Could You describe it?

Jev: I only remember that at that time, I was using a 3MP canon toy camera, for a long time.

5. What or who got you started in photography?

Jev: Photography is a very interesting and challanging business. It’s not only knowing your gear, but it also evolves a lot of people skills. I just love being one, but sometimes, I hate being one too. Combination of both.

img_2967 img_2695-2

6. How would you describe your style of photographing?

Jev: I try to beat myself every single time and compare my work with High end professionals only. My work is never good enough for me. There are maybe 2% of all images I make, which I really like.

There is really no style, just the way I handle my clients and their cars, houses etc.

img_0852 img_0243

7. What’s in your bag? What camera do You use generally?

Jev: 5Dii, 50D with many old M42 lenses. Also stuff like 70-200 2.8L, 24-105 4L, 17-40 4L and many strobes

8. Why cars?

Jev: I love the car world. These days it’s changing so fast, and even if I could’n tell that it’s changing in a good way, it’s still a very interesting place.

Classic Car Photographer vol. 07: Richard Le Photography

I hope You remember that we started a new serie in our Oldtimers Magazine. In this series of articles called Classic Car Photographer we will speak with automotive photographers from all over the world! In this interview You will read a story of Richard Le Photography!

1. Tell us a little bit about you:

Richard Le: My name is Richard Le and I’ve been residing in Sacramento California for about 15 years now. Originally from New Jersey, I moved to California with my family back in 2001. I was always fascinated by the many different body lines of cars and the way they sounded on the track or the streets.

2. Did you go to school to study photography?
Richard Le: I did not go to school to study photography but I did learn a lot of what I know from watching YouTube videos and getting advice from other photographers.

imp4 imp3px

3. How long have you been a photographer?
Richard Le: I started doing it as a hobby, just like many others, but I’ve been doing it full time for about 5 years now.

camaro7px

4. Do You remember Your first photography? Could You describe it?
Richard Le: My very first paid shoot was from a local automotive shop that had found my work through social media. I remember it was a BMW E28 M5 that was turbocharged and was fully modified from the ground up. I had no lights and no special equipment other than my camera. I knew absolutely nothing about photoshop at the time and was basically running & gunning with hopes of getting that money shot! It came out to be okay and the client was happy. Being that it was a last minute shoot and not thoroughly planned, I’ll admit it was extremely nerve wracking!

5. What or who got you started in photography?
Richard Le: I can’t quite remember exactly what got me started but having played the older Gran Turismo video games had some influence on it. I remember after every level that I played I kept watching myself in replay and was always amazed by the different angles. It was cool to see but then I had wanted to create those images for myself so that eventually lead to me shooting cars and trying to mimic the shots I saw from video games.

6. How would you describe your style of photographing?
Richard Le: I guess I would try and describe it as moody and grungy, or at least I try to do so every time. Some say it looks somewhat dreamy and sometimes animated. Lately, I’ve been focusing more on the raw, natural scenarios and lifestyle images.

7. What’s in your bag? What camera do You use generally?
Richard Le: Currently I am running with a Sony A7RII fitted with a 24-70 f/4. It’s usually linked up with a Manfrotto tripod and quick release. For lighting, I’m using a Westcott Ice Light 2 for night images but during the day I’d either use available light or may have a silver reflector on hand. I try to keep my gear to a minimal as I don’t like lugging around a bunch of gear every where I go.

g3copy g4revised

8. Why cars?
Richard Le: Well it’s probably because of the many different characteristics that each one brings out. I enjoy working with them all and every time is a new experience. But I’ve got more of an appreciation with the older cars as I’d rather work on say a ’70 Chevelle vs a Lamborghini Aventador. Much of it has to do with the story behind it. I enjoy talking with the car owners and hearing about all the fine work and details they went through to make their dream car into a reality. But hey if you loaned me a Lamborghini, I wouldn’t complain :).

9. Have You been participating on some events as Classic Car photographer?
Richard Le: I’ve attended quite a few events but not as the official event photographer. I wouldn’t mind doing so but just haven’t reached out for it.

co3web

10. Let’s say that dreams come true. What is Your dream-car – that You want to photograph?
Richard Le: It’s difficult for me to say what my dream car would be but the one that’s coming into mind would be a ’67 – ’68 Mustang GT500 aka “Eleanor”. For me it was all because of the movie, “Gone in 60 Seconds” with Nicolas Cage. I think I was in middle school or early high school during that time. That had sparked my interest for American cars and I’ve been dying to get my hands on one since.

co2

11. What plans do You have for the future?
Richard Le: For the future, I’ve considered getting into videography and maybe start making documentaries or short films. I feel like my imagination can reach even higher limits with feeding more emotion to the audience and to have them get a dramatic sense of how it felt during those actual moments. As far as photography goes, I’m looking to venture off. I’d like to settle down and possibly become a brand manager for a certain manufacturer or some sort.

It’s fun to work with a bunch of different cars, labels, magazines but it can also get very tiring. I’m getting close to my 30’s now and I just don’t see myself running around like I did in my younger days. Lol, I make myself sound so old but really I think I’ve done much of what I set myself to do and I’m happy with it all. Now I think it’s time to reach out for different goals. There are many things out there I haven’t done and I just feel like I’m capable of so much more.

Florian Joly Photography Gallery Oldtimers

Oldtimers Magazine pres. Automotive Passion vol. 11

Hi everyone, my name is Florian and I’m a french automotive photographer. Petrolhead since my youngest age I started taking photographies 7 years ago. I’m now travelling around France and Europe to try to catch them all. As I’m growing up, i’m getting more and more attracted by classic cars and specially racing cars with all the history and the drama linked to the drivers. Enjoy!

The legendary Ford GT40 was created by the firm with one simple goal : win the 24h of le Mans. After two difficult seasons in 1964 and 1965, 1966 was finally the good one. With a more powerful GT40 called the MK II, the goal was finally achieved and the tandem Bruce McLaren/Chris Amon won Le Mans.

Three other overall wins at the 24H will follow, in 1967 with an over powerful version of the GT40 called the MK IV (the MK III was a street version in case you are wondering), and in 1968 and 1969 it was the first version, the MKI, that won despite its old age. The word legend is well deserved. You can hear the evil sound of the GT40 V8 here:

Following the 1970 Ferrari 512S, Ferrari introduced a more powerful version in 1971 (the V12 produced now 620hp) called the 512 M. Despite a very strong pace in several races (one of the 512M even leaded the 24h of Le Mans during the night) and a few podiums, the 512M did not win a single race because of the engine reliability…

It was clear that the support of Ferrari was not good enough, remember Ferrari was also in F1 and the F1 will remain its ultimate goal. The 512M will stay forever as a wasted potential but that V12 noise will make you vibe forever I guess. Here is the noise:

The Ferrari 512S was introduced in 1970 to compete against the Porsche 917 that we presented to you a few weeks ago. After a promising start at the first race in Sebring where the 512 of Giunti/Vaccarella/Andretti won, the rest of the season was more complicated (a few podiums though). The V12 was not very reliable and the drivers even said that the car was a truck compared to the very agile 917. Ferrari created then a more efficient version for 1971 called the 512M, that you will discover next week.

Classic Car Photographer vol. 05: Matt Magnino

I hope You remember that we started a new serie in our Oldtimers Magazine. In this series of articles called Classic Car Photographer we will speak with automotive photographers from all over the world! In this interview You will read a story of Matt Magnino Photography!

MiuraVRS-1 SITE

1. Tell us a little bit about you:

Matt Magnino: My name is Matt Magnino I am a commercial automotive photographer and retoucher from Dallas, TX. I have spent the last few years getting the opportunity to photograph some truly incredible vehicles and learning their stories along the way. Every car has something unique about it and I love creating images with an atmosphere that captures the viewer.

28533502516_e1a08ee06c_k

2. Did you go to school to study photography?

Matt Magnino: I did initially start at Columbia College Chicago as a photography major but switched my focus to Advertsing after my first year. Felt in the long run it made more sense to learn how to market myself as a photographer than to go to school to study the art of photography. Learned more from trying new things and talking to others in the industry.

3. How long have you been a photographer?

Matt Magnino: I first picked up a camera to be a photographer in 2009. A few friends went on a car cruise and someone had their dads camera and asked if anyone knew how to use it.. Wasn’t 100% sure how but turned a few dials, pressed a few buttons and the rest is history as they say.

4. Do You remember Your first photography? Could You describe it?

Matt Magnino: My first photography was from special but it was the start of something new. I was immediately hooked and just wanted to keep shooting everything I could. It went beyond automotive work but that is always what sparked my interest and were I excelled the most.

1913 MERCER WEB

5. What or who got you started in photography?

Matt Magnino: Growing up my parents were always huge fans of art, espeically fans of the great Ansel Adams so we always had his black and white prints in the house all over. But to actually pursue photography as a career I owe it all to one of my best friends and fellow automotive photographer Jeremy Cliff. We became frineds early into my career and we pushed each other to the points were at now. Always had advice nd we helped one another when we could.

6. How would you describe your style of photographing?

Matt Magnino: Many would say my style of photography is very CGI based.. which I don’t have a problem with. I always wanted to create works of art that left people mesmerized. Which is always the goal of any photograph. I always liked images that had atmosphere to them and made you feel part of it. That’s really been one of my focal points recently was to create atmospheres!

7. What’s in your bag? What camera do You use generally?

Matt Magnino: This response always leaves people scratching their head.. I actually don’t own any camera gear haha. Aside from my trusty Razer Blade Stealth Laptop, I don’t actually own anything aside from a tripod and LED light for lightpainting A few years back I had a bit of a computer crisis that forced me to sell my camera to buy a new computer. Seems crazy but at the time it was the only choice. Luckily Cliff (Jeremy) has allowed me to borrow one of his cameras for the time being and that has been an A7r with Zeiss 24-70 F4 lens. These new Sony systems are really incredible and changing the game truly.

8. Why cars?

Matt Magnino: I have always been a petrolhead since I can remember. I just love cars, everything about them. Each one has its own story and character that makes them fun to photograph. Especially classic cars, they really just have their pwn personality and makes each one unique.

16381446911_9f7973a9cb_k

9. Have You been participating on some events as Classic Car photographer?

Matt Magnino: I have been to some vintage racing events over the years. Working alongside an IndyCar team I have been able to see some of the vintage cars out on the track and that it is truly a spectacle. I really want to go to Car Week next year at Pebble Beach and the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Those are my dream events right now.

13305145_995127603889812_5817684744010791811_o

10. Lets say that dreams come true. What is Your dream-car – that You want to photograph?

Matt Magnino: Hmm, this list could be long on this one. There are so many truly amazing cars out there and unfortunately I don’t think I could narrow it down to just one. I absolutely LOVED the Mazda Furai concept but thanks to Top Gear that car no longer exists! Would’ve been absolutely incredible to photograph. Other than that maybe some old LeMans winners. I love vintage race cars!

8640924292_95626090bb_o

11. What plans do You have for the future?

Matt Magnino: I have some ideas. I’m working on so stay posted to see if we can make them a reality. It is always important to have some sort of plan even if it is a basic framework. Saw a quote last night and it stays true, “A Dream without a plan is just a wish” Just keep grinding and pushing and taking the next step even if seems impossible.

The Aston Martin DB4 GT was born in the early sixties, a little bit more than 300hp was under its hood. Only 75 pieces have been made and it surely embodies the british class.
