Classic Cars :: Grande Prairie & Northern Alberta Photographer

This is a sneak peek of the photo shoot I did Friday evening. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting these two special people. SC is a special lady planning this surprise photo shoot for T and his beautiful old cars.

Diane, you have really captured the essence of a “man and his car” what fun you must have had.

Someone really came up with a great gift idea when they asked you to shoot this one. Great shots.

These look great, and I can already see them hanging on his wall! I especially like the one with his reflection. Great capture!

Wonderful series. I think you’ve captured both the man and his car together perfectly. Especially love the image with the reflection.
Such fun!!!

These are exceptional, Diane. The tones are really fitting adding a nostalgic feel.

Lovely pictures, I am thinking the 50’s and America.

Sweet!!! I loved Camaros and Firebirds for the longest time. Then the Mazda MX6 came along, and I switched my loyalties over ๐Ÿ™‚

Love these shots!! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you lived closer to me, I’d get you to shoot our smart cars ๐Ÿ™‚
