Vintage Car Graveyard

For years now, countless people have asked me “Do you have any pictures of old abandoned vintage cars?” and my answer has been sadly, “No”. So when a friend and fellow photographer Rich Nicoloff of ‘Photography From the Journey’ told me about a junkyard of over 4000 old cars out in the woods, I jumped on the opportunity. After driving for over three and a half hours I really hoping that it would be wort it, but when we pulled in and started to walk around I knew we had made the right call!

 

Most of the time when I am photographing old buildings and locations, I try to tell the story of the location and create a ‘sense of place’, but while I was at the graveyard I really wanted to focus on the details and the parts. So I left my ultra wide angle lens in my bag for most of the day and oped to capture the old emblems and details of these beautiful old vehicles quietly rusting away out in the woods.

 

I hope you enjoy!

    I think your work is outstanding. I came across some of your pictures while in Asheville. I think I’m going to be purchasing some pictures for my garage. I wanted to ask if you had any blogs where you describe what camera settings and gear you used in the pictures you’ve taken. I ask because i love to mess around with photography as a hobby. Thanks and keep up the good work.

      Thanks for your kind words Jason! I’m glad you enjoyed the Asheville exhibit! Currently I don’t offer any instruction or specific info on actual picture taking. But possibly in the future! Thanks for your interest 🙂
