It's titled "Photographers Rides"

We're photographers right? And this is all photo's of our rides?

Or is the thread only for professional photographers?

Actually, the point of this thread is to post photos of cars that you own that you use in your work as a working photographer. It isn't supposed to be about the cars that you use for recreational purposes, commuting to a non-photography job, etc, etc, etc.

It is for photos of cars that are used in the work of photography. Yet, some persist in cluttering up the thread with photos of sports cars, without even bothering to explain how those vehicles are used in their photographic business.

.

Finally, someone got my point. We have a winner

Sorry people. Every stupid reason to lecture me on the OPs request, as if it were that hard or that serious, can stop now.
You drive a Ferrari, good for you. I can appreciate that. Im a car person, currently drive a 911, have had 3 911's, a Boxster S and a 944 turbo. I'll tell you this though, I never would take one to a job. And that was the assignment, cars used for work.

So get off your high horse criticizing me for missing the point. Or at least get it straight if you're going to lecture me

Personally, with 557 pages in the thread, I think we lost control of it long ago, & nobody is going to go back & edit out the non-conforming posts.
So as long as the photog owns it, it will work for me.

I mean as far as for the working photographer, not to shoot...

Here's my current car. I got the roof racks for it so that I can transport large photo blinds and other wildlife photography gear.

In this pic it is carrying a 12 foot tall orchard ladder. The ladder has been painted camouflage, and has an Enduro ballhead installed on the top step. The ballhead is so that I can use the ladder as a very tall tripod when the need arises. The ladder is used for photographing cavity-nesting birds at their nests, which are usually too high up in trees to photograph properly from the ground; hence the need for the ladder.

My car is the tool that gets me and my gear to the site. If you look closely you may notice that the bottom portion of the front bumper has been cut away. I did this because it would keep hanging up on brush and rocks when I would take it off-road. The car is a more functional tool without the lower portion of the bumper.

I did have a welded steel mount for my gimbal head permanantly affixed to the door of my last Corolla, and also to the Corolla before that. But once I got the 1D Mark 4, I could capture clean images at 1600 ISO, and can therefore shoot at significantly faster shutter speeds; hence, I didn't see the need for the door bracket anymore.

So when my '03 Corolla got totaled last year, I let the mount go to the junkyard along with the car....the insurance company gave me $651 for it, as they considered it "special equipment" that wasn't transferrable to another vehicle. So, if I'd wanted to keep it I would have sacrificed the $651. That, combined with the fact that I don't really need it anymore, caused me to decide to part with it.

These days, a bean bag is plenty good enough, even for shutter speeds down to about 1/40th of a second.

If you want to see the door bracket, just check the images here in my POTN gallery - they are some of the more recently added photos there.

Actually Tom that is not what the first two posts said at all. There is NO mention of needing to explain how those vehicles are used in their photographic business..none.

As far as explaining how my cars are used in the business its simple. The camera and lens sit snugly in the passenger seat inside a lowpro bag. I then attach the seat belt around said bag just in case I need to slam on the brakes because a snowbird got their first glimpse of the ocean. -?

"cluttering up the thread with photos of sports cars" ok that is not even possible. You cant use the words sports car and clutter in the same sentence..I looked it up.

It is the camouflage object strapped atop the car, via the roof rack.

What a great move! The latter looks much more useful - and more fun, to boot!
