Auto Express Photoshoot Plea - 3Rd Gen Avensis

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I help research the buying guides for Auto Express magazine and one of the next ones I’ve been asked to do is on the Toyota Avensis Mk3. Therefore, I need to find a non modified car, which I can put into the studio to photograph for the piece.

Firstly the downside, due to the fact that I'm supposed to get these cars either from a dealer or a press office there is no fuel budget for the shot, I appreciate that this is not ideal, especially with the price of fuel at the moment, and I'm not asking for anyone to do this unless they want to, but if there is an owner who is close to Derby or Beaulieu and who feels that a professional photoshoot, which would cost approximately £400, is a fair swap for their time (a photoshoot takes about 3-4 hours) and fuel, then I can obviously give them more details.
We put these requests onto the model forums as private owners may value the pictures more than dealers who have no need for them once the car has been sold.

Can you please get in touch with me if you’ve got a car that we can put in the studio – it needs to be a tidy example that hasn’t been modified. The spec doesn’t matter, it just needs to be a non-modified car. There will only be studio photography of the car, so there will be no dynamic shots taken at all. Only you will drive the car and you can stay with it at all times.

If you think you might be able to help, could you drop me a line please, either via this forum or direct to my email address (vicky@magiccarpics.co.uk) – attaching photos if possible.

Please note that the Derby photographer can work weekends if necessary.

We haven't done a Toyota for some time and we are looking to redress this, so I will be posting this request on other model forums to get the Toyotas featured.

Thanks for your time,

Vicky

I don't have a mk3 Avensis, nor know anybody who has one personally. I would have volunteered as photography is one my other hobbies.

Also, what about renting a car as an option? .

Let us know if you get a volunteer and how you get on.

Look forward to seeing the publication.

Hi Mintalkin

Thank you for replying to my plea, it is appreciated. I have spoken to the feature writer and a 59 plate Gen 3 Avensis is fine to use but would it be possible to have a couple of snapshots just as a double check? I will take them to the Art Ed (he makes the final decision) and if he is happy with it then we can maybe sort out a convenient date with you.

Does this sound OK?

Thanks

Vicky

Hi Mintalkin

Thank you for this, I'll pass it onto the Art Ed for him to check. The wind deflectors shouldn't be a problem as they are Toyota ones so available for this car. I will message you tomorrow with the decision and hopefully take it from there.

Thanks

Vicky
