Besides his talent as a Boston car photographer, Daniel Olivares is well known for his work as a documentary and lifestyle photographer. He is also a cinematographer, providing complete visual media solutions for Boston businesses and individuals who want influential and impactful imagery.
Daniel’s automotive photography therefore blends seamlessly into his favored genres as well as his videography work. We especially love the lifestyle elements on display, from fashion to environmental details that let us imagine and feel what it’s like to be behind the wheel of a particular vehicle.
His color grading uses an attractive profile that’s uniquely his as well, with desaturated tones except for reds and other elements he wants to lend emphasis to. Coupled with his masterful compositions, there’s no theme Daniel can’t bring to life!

3. David Saggio
And like the best Boston car photographers, David is himself a competitive race car driver. His work both behind the camera and behind the lens gives him an insider’s perspective to the automotive world that informs his art and heightens his appreciation for vehicles of all kinds.
He is especially interested in how form comes together in a vehicle from both the engineering and artistic perspectives. As he explains in his own words: “A key element to David’s style is recognizing the art of the automobile from the perspective of the lines and curves as the designers and engineers created it and the drivers experience it.” This study of the automotive world often elevates his work beyond documentary or advertising to fine art status! We also think that the way he showcases the connections between people and their vehicles is well worth exploring deeply!
4. Patrick Skalski
Patrick’s Skalski’s car portraits have an intriguing composition, making strong use of leading lines that emphasize motion and draw the eye straight to the subject. He also often finds hero angles that best showcase the artistic style and grace that’s sometimes missed in favor of the utilitarian purpose vehicles serve.
We also see lifestyle elements on occasion when he brings in models and backgrounds that carry stories, emotions, or even memories of bygone decades.

As a portrait, family, and automotive photographer, Sydney chooses to photograph the things that hold strong value to him: people, connections, and cars! And despite the many differences between the worlds of people and automotive images, we see several aspects to both that suggest a signature style all his own!
Sydney has a great eye for rich colors and working in bright natural light. He invites us to explore nicely saturated tones in his subjects and often finds compositions where complementary colors lead into one another. And the angles he uses on cars often emphasize the more dramatic portions of the vehicle, such as wide angle perspectives from the front or the sides. His work is always up close and intimate, continually drawing you into the subject!
Justin Cathey is a hybrid shooter; that is, he aims to provide both photography and videography for Boston collaborators. But many of our favorite shots of his were taken on the streets as he hunts for subjects who stories need telling!
We also love Justin’s choice of color grading, with a contemporary desaturated feel and rich reds that give his work a signature style. Justin also enjoys adding strong downtown living lifestyle vibes to his car images, with buildings, street signs, and other elements contributing to the story on display.
