    Just wondering from the long time as well as newer members on the forum.
    Do people pay for these sort of pics? Through either private shoot or a group shoot?

    Yes, people do pay for truly outstanding photos, but not generally for work they can produce themselves.
    A workmate of mine does sports photography on the side and has won awards for it, but he can't make a living from it.

    And when you consider there's people floating around on PSB who take great photos for free (or a wristy), there's no point in paying for something you can get quite easily.
    Rest in Peace

    Generally no, as other's have said, these days getting a decent photo of your pride and joy is not too difficult with the cameras and free software about. Hell even the latest phones have amazing cameras.

    Yes a true photoshoot with quality gear and a knowledgeable hand at layering RAW images will yield far superior results, but the costs (gear) involved and the cost of the final product (labour) puts it out of reach for most who just want a nice photo. And unless your work is supreme you can't (shouldn't) justify a high price.

    These days almost any asshole with a have decent camera body and a bag full of lenses calls themselves a "professional photographer". I can take a 1/2 decent pic and make it look pretty, but I would never call myself a pro.

    Real money in photography is not in bikes or cars, sure you may get the odd Supercar owner who wants a $2000 picture on the wall, but in the real world look at the guys who spend all day at the race track taking quality images of the guys and girls going around. Most won't pay the money for the image as funds go to tyres, fuel and trackdays.

    Real money in photography is in the inane, retarded, pointless boring shit like weddings and baby photos, people will hand money over for that shit like their lives depend on it. It's insane. A trackday photographer may make a few hundred $ for capturing a fast moving object for 6 hours in the sun and about the same again editing and uploading the 100's of images they have taken. Wedding photographers will make a few thousand an hour for a 10th of the output from people holding still and posing.

    Agree 100% TurboR1 . My income doesn't come from cars/bikes but it's something I dream about extending the possibility to, even though not realistic, not yet. Also not willing to spend extra $ to add another genre of photo for income.

    were the previous PSB group shoots free? the ones by Squash? Appreciate your input though, you are spot on with the breakdown. Just not worth it, unless for personal satisfaction and mates.

    Generally yes, though there was an infamous one once that was paraded as free, and then those turning up were given the marketing pitch.

    Decided to tear apart the dirt bike engine after my brother flooded the case with mud/water. Oil was coming out clean after some flushing but I had a gut feel something was wrong after the oil pressure seemed a little low...

    last rays of the sun here tonight . 15 shot pano stitch in PS, all shot at 18mm focal length, which usually doesn't work, for me at least.




    then, a little later, another pano stitch , shot conventionally.

    Last minute decision to try and get today's sunset. Trying to get back into shooting with more time becoming available again.
