How do I become a professional automotive photographer?
Here are some tips:

  1. Take a photography course and understand the history of the art. Master the technical aspect.
  2. Get photography gear and start shooting.
  3. Start your own website, Facebook channel, Tumblr and Instagram and make a name for yourself.
  4. Get involved in local automotive scenes.
  5. Study journalism and creative writing if you want to be the full package.
  6. If you are looking to be a Speedhunter it also helps that you are deeply involved with cars and car culture. We like people who know mechanics and also automotive and motorsports history.
  7. Do everything with passion and never give up.

Can I use your photos on my blog/website?
In general, we allow people to repost our stories and photos with a few caveats:

  1. The photos are unaltered. In particular please do not crop the Speedhunters logos out.
  2. You only use 50% of the photos and writing on your website with a link back to Speedhunters.com. Do not repost the whole article. This will make us sad.
  3. For social media, you are free to use our photos, as long as they are credited to Speedhunters.com and unaltered
  4. The photos can only be used for editorial purposes. No commercial use is allowed without written permission.

How do I advertise with Speedhunters or become an official supplier?
All enquiries of this nature should go through the commercial enquiries desk.
