Coastal Customs specialises in restoring vintage vehicles and building hot rods and customised vehicles. Some of these gorgeous vehicles were recently photographed at the Barnyard Theatre Mossel Bay, coupled with some stunning local beauties provided by Ace Models.
The Barnyard Theatre Mossel Bay was chosen as the venue for the shoot, as the look and feel worked with the vehicles. With the farm backdrop and of course the rugged-looking buildings, we were able to create an overall “way-back-then” feel with the photographs. The day ran out with a gorgeous sunset, allowing for even more stunning photographs. Then as a completely unexpected bonus, dramatic cloud settings added atmosphere to some of the images.
Donique Leonard from Ace Models Mossel Bay did the makeup and arranged the era-themed clothing that was rented from Deja Vu, an antique shop and Vintage theatre, with careful focus on pairing outfits with vehicles.
There were a total of 10 vehicles on the day and a special thanks to our technical team who were on hand to make sure that the vehicles were in position on time and looking their best. We managed to convince one or two of them to join the shoot as back-up models in some of the photographs. They held their pose very professionally and certainly looked the part!
The vehicles, and this goes without saying, are extremely photogenic, and we managed to capture some unique photographs.
