Our Photography Studio
Bagan & Company is full service custom automobile photography studio. The studio was designed and built solely to photograph cars of all types using our custom 25’ x 50’ photography facility. The studio uses a large overhead mounted 10’ x 30’ Chimera soft box light fixture specifically made to provide commercial grade lighting for photographing cars and trucks.
Additionally, the studio walls were custom built in a cyclorama design, which means there are no photographic corners and allows the background and flooring to disappear and accentuate the automobile front and center. This creates a polished and commercial grade image that can be used to create beautiful full size prints up to billboard size.
We also can digitally replace background images in software to place the vehicle in a unique setting such as the beach, pastoral lake scene or a vintage barn image.
While our unique vehicle photography studio lighting provides tack sharp commercial grade quality photographs, a large number of our retail clients are private collectors who want a fantastic print to hang on the wall. Many of these owners also pose with their vehicle portrait style. Since Bagan & Company also offers standard portraiture photography, we are skilled at photographing people as well as vehicles. We appreciate how passionate car enthusiasts are about their special ride and are always open to client special requests and suggestions, so bring your family and dress to match the period of your car to give your photograph a personal lifestyle touch.
Photographing Your Car – The Process
Located at the Classic Car Museum in St Augustine on US 1, our studio is easily accessible via large bay doors, so your vehicle can be rolled right onto our studio from outside. Once the vehicle is in the studio, we adjust the custom lighting to best light the vehicle and begin the shoot. Generally, a vehicle photography shoot takes less than an hour depending on what the client wants.
Customers enjoy the experience of having their vehicle photographed. They participate in the process watching amazing photographs of their vehicle appear in real time on the computer screen where they can see and offer insights and preferences.
Once the vehicle has been photographed, we will fine tune the client’s image in post processing on the computer to further enhance the color, contrast, lighting, texture and other items typically provided with commercial photography.
Once We Photograph Your Car
The client has a large selection of products to choose from for the final product ranging from traditional high quality photographic prints to high tech aluminum and glass prints. The client also receives digital images suitable for social media such as Facebook or Instagram.
While we work with commercial and agency clients to meet critical deadlines, we typically can have your photographs ready within a few business days. Special orders such as very large or metal prints will take longer.
Who Do We Photograph?
We offer photography for vehicles ranging from motorcycles, horse drawn carriages, muscle and classic cars to today’s electric cars. Our custom studio lighting is able to create the sharpest and most realistic photograph regardless of the style of paint, finish, style or trim that your vehicle has.
Here are sample types of vehicles that we photograph:
Collectible classic cars
Private vehicle collections
Off road vehicles and Jeeps
Custom made vehicles
Vehicles for sale
Automobile dealership vehicles
The cyc wall studio is 25’x 50’ and is easily accessed from the street so any vehicle that can be driven or rolled in can be easily photographed.
