Great shots and an off topic question. How much are these cars if I wanted to start my own collection?
Thanks

My first shots of diecasts looked awful back some 7 years ago! The best advice I could give any new photographer is to just keep shooting. For any photo shoot I take around 100 photos and only a handful are keepers. Study your best ones and learn from them. Letting people critique your photos is also another way you can learn. I can't even tell you how much I've learned from fellow diecast photographers!


It really depends on how much detail you want in the model. A few years ago a nicely detailed model with carpeting, metal disc brakes and photoetched(3D badging) would set you back around $50. Today, those same models retail for over $100. Price gouging at its finest!

The most well known diecast maker that does this is Autoart. They make decent models but nothing worth the asking prices and their QC is iffy at best. Their older models are much nicer than their new ones.

Kyosho makes some really fantastic models as of late and they are right around $85 online. A fair bit of money but the attention to detail and finish are second to none. Truly spectacular in every way, the blue Audi R8 in my first post is made by them.

For something a little cheaper look at Maisto. These go for around $20-$30 but if you go to a local Sam's Club right now you might find a whole stack of them in stock for Christmas at only $11. These won't have carpeting or the fine detail of the more expensive models but they look great on a shelf and photograph very well.

Some of my favorite sites to shop at include:

eBay, Collectable Diecast, Diecastfast, and Replicarz.

Forgive me for such a long post! I could talk about diecasts for hours!
