Default A professional photographer and his pictures my Monte

Wanted to have a better camera lense than my old point and shoot do a few shots of the Monte and a professional who photographs cars for a living do his magic on this ol'girl.

Isaac Mion among other types of photography is also an avid automotive writer and photographer, travels about to large automotive events like SEMA and such. He was kind enough to take an afternoon and let me bring him my car for a photo shoot. His studio is currently in the final stages of a composite video for me with clips from my handful of videos and some he made the day of this shoot.

I'm very pleased with his efforts, thought I would share a few of the shots with you all here, because if anyone can appreciate a Monte it is us right here. Just so discouraging at the car shows people walk right on by our cars, kind of like they should be parked out in the parking lot, grr.

Let me tell you that was a great set of photo's. Not sure what they charge but it was well worth it. Very nice.
Plus your car appears to have a few upgrades that I may have3 not seen before, I like the Red stripe on the Wheels and the Hood is really killer.
You can be very happy with this ride. I am envious to say the least. Thanks for showing!!
I also understand where you a coming from when you talk about the Car shows. I usually try to make an effort to look at those Auto's that get snubbed. You almost want to get a sign that says this car appeared at SEMA, or Wayne C. sold me this one, or Customized by Chip. I think you have Dave Kindig out in Utah. Anyway the details are great, you did a fine job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks AWESOME! I agree also on our Montes being passed over at shows. Would love shots of both our Montes together, hopefully we can make that happen.

First, awesome pics man! That photographer did an outstanding job showcasing your Monte!!

Now, an important question, I see a great looking girl in this pic, but no Monte.....
In all seriousness, is the girl a friend, family member, anyone you know at all or someone that goes with the photographer??

Seems like everyone likes the stills, thanks much, the video should be pretty darn tight too! I like this guys style, younger and electrifying pizzazy touch.

Ha Jason, I'm not that lucky to have a family member like her, she is Isaacs model he brought her in for a few shots. Still have not washed the spot where she leaned on the car... I did not get a Monte shot from her either, darn.

The Monte won't always stay so pristine, so wanted to get it photographed before it got into a wreck or some other unfortunate situation , least now I will have more professional shots of the car as it is or perhaps was...

Dude that's a beautiful car man. One day I hope to see my intimidator in that kind of shape. You should be very proud of your M.C.

The pics look amazing!

I don't have a professional take pics of my car because I always want to be the guy who took the shot. The kinds of photos he did I have already done. I seek elevation always and often take a ladder with me when I know I'm going to be shooting. But I don't have amazing equipment. I am using a DSLR these days, but could use a UV filter. I've even done that shot with the mirrored building behind it. That was with an even lesser camera, but the pic was used in another Monte Carlo calendar for a club that I'm not even a member of.

I haven't used models with my car photos. It's not like I'm against it - she's hot! But my wife actually owns the BudChev and to photo with another chick feels morally wrong to me. No lie - one time a the races, when my wife was at home pregnant with our first child, I had a hot Budweiser bikini clad girl approach me and ask me to photo her with the car - they matched!. And how gay did I feel declining that opportunity...
