Covering Cardiff, South Wales & Beyond


Looking for a car photographer in Cardiff...?

Capturing the beauty of your vehicle

With over 20 years photography experience, from shooting projects for high-end brands within the fashion industry to spending several years as the official in-house automotive photographer at Hemmels Mercedes shooting pristine classic Mercedes-Benz rebuilds, Shawn is well equipped to capture the beauty & craftsmanship of your beloved vehicle.

On Location Car Photoshoot in South Wales & Beyond

There are some fantastic benefits to living in South Wales as we have access to a huge variety of beautiful locations. Relying on weather is our only challenge - though even rainfall & storms can make for some epic on location shoots.

From marina backdrops in Cardiff Bay, quaint little rural & coastline locations through the Vale down to Southerndown, impressive mountains in the Brecon Beacons, & plenty more spots in between. We are certainly not short of incredible car photoshoot opportunities across South Wales.


Shawn can also discuss car photography projects from further afield & has experience of working with Hemmels Mercedes & others on car photoshoots in locations such as Switzerland, London, Surrey, Birmingham, & West Wales.

The epic landscapes of Switzerland played backdrop throughout this project, with a Hemmels Mercedes-Benz 280SL posing as the star of the show. The shoot took place among the natural wonders that surround the outskirts of Geneva.


With snow-capped mountains blending in with lush green meadows, dainty Swiss villages and bundles of fresh air it was impossible to find enough time in the few days spent here to even scratch the surface on the number of picturesque locations being passed by while traveling along the meandering roads & dirt tracks. Switzerland's landscapes really do rank up there with the best.

This stunning iconic Mercedes-Benz 300SL was captured in various locations across Cardiff, South Wales. The shoot took in popular places and landmarks such as Cardiff Bay and the Pierhead building in Mermaid Quay, Penarth Marina, & various spots across Ogmore Vale.


Changeable weather between morning and afternoon allowed me to capture this incredible vehicle in both sunshine and rain. Elegant with a timeless beauty in the rays of the sun, menacing and mighty impressive when posed under rainfall.
