WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG

With the recent change of direction to my automotive photography work, I felt that it was best to start my own blog so I can share some of new latest work along with a whole heap of my older stuff.

I didn’t want to lose touch with my two biggest passions – cars and photography. Hopefully I can stay motivated and upbeat to provide you all with some great content.

I started my automotive photography journey back in 2008 and I have been evolving my style ever since. When I look back at my older work I seriously cringe, I had no idea what I was doing. I was thrown into the deep end and I just had to learn how to swim and fast!

As the years went by, my skills developed and my knowledge grew. I tell everyone I meet, photography is based around two things for me – light and problem solving. They both go hand in hand. As I mature I know how to shape both. The challenge is part of the pleasure I get from shooting.

Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have my work featured in Street Machine, Street Commodores, Fast Fours, Hot 4s, Zoom, Wheels and Motor. In recent years I was the Features Editor of Perth Street Car and my proudest achievement to date has been Editor-In-Chief of Forged Magazine, where I was the head photographer, writer and designer for the publication. It made my life hell sometimes but on other occasions, it brought me so much joy. It is hard to see it go.

Where do I head to from now after departing the magazine? Well, that is anyone’s guess. I hope to keep shooting for a variety of other titles and I will be finally getting the chance to work with private clients too.

If you would like your car photographed, just send me an email and I will get in touch with a price list and availability.

Check back here as much as you can to see what I am up to and to see how the future is treating me.

Cheers,
Jordan Leist
