Art Imitates Life

After getting a little love from HellaFlush quite a few new people started following me on twitter, real people, not just those weird half naked fake accounts that tell you about teeth whitening. One of the accounts that stood out was British Columbia photographer Bryce Casselmans. The pic of him ripping some back roads in his Miata looked sort of interesting and seeing that he and I share a lot of the same interests (cars, toys, ‘extreme sports’ photography) and I so I decided to follow his tweets. He has been doing some interesting things with model cars lately and I thought it was worth sharing what can be done with a few bucks, some camera equipment, and a little creativity.

Project 70 GTX

Bryce found this 70 Plymouth GTX at his local pharmacy and set up a little home made booth photo shoot for it.

Type III Project

Slammed type III’s look great even at 1:24 scale.

69 Camaro Project

This is probably my favorite set of the bunch, such a creative use of a fog machine (owning a fog machine is pretty awesome on it’s own).

Roast the tires!

  1. That is just too cool. I didn’t even realize so many people took pictures of model cars, it really combines my love of photographing cars + an interest in macro photography. I’ve been thinking of figuring out how to mess with my cars some more, ever since I played around with that run-over Lamborghini that I had.

  2. […] So this morning I pour myself a cup of coffee, sit down at the computer and do my ritual twitter, facebook, myspace, bookmarked RSS’s, various online forums blah blah blah. But today on twitter was the highlight! I follow an automotive website/blog called Stance Is Everything (Perfect Stance) based out of TO and was stoked to see that my recent model car projects were featured. Be sure to check out the article… HERE […]
