Tips on taking the best photos of your car

Good quality photos can really help sell a car. In this simple guide, we'll show you how to take the right photos that show your car looking its best.

Quick tips

  • Make sure the whole car fits the camera frame (it's easier to get the whole car in landscape)
  • Take photos in good lighting 
  • Make sure the car is reasonably clean. It doesn't have to be spotless, just clean enough that potential buyers can see it in its natural state i.e., don't leave rubbish inside.

Good vs Bad photos

Here are some examples of good vs poor quality photos.
