Photos of the Year 2019



Every classic car we consign from one of our genuine sellers requires the best media possible for potential buyers to view.

The quality, thoroughness and honesty of all our images and videos builds trust that is important to our buyers. In fact, it’s this honesty and transparency that means over 80% of our buyers don’t feel the need to view the vehicle before they commit to the purchase – this has to be an industry first.

We would like to thank all of our consigners for putting in so much time and effort. This makes sure we continue to provide the best and most honest representations of vehicles when compared to any other sales or auction service.

Finally, we love to share, so here are some fantastic photos captured this year by our amazing consigners.

Happy New Year!
Adam, Kulraj and the Trade Classics team.

P.S we have created a Google Drive folder with some of the best images from 2019 – perfect for a new year screensaver – see images.

Since serving in the Army, Glyn is now back home and has found a passion for photography. He is currently studying for a degree in it and is extremely experimental at times, for example he used a coke can for long exposure photos. This is one of the best photos of a car we have seen - scenery, greenery, stately home, and of course, a classic car.

A truly emotive photo . Kabir is an incredible photographer and we think this is one of his best. At Trade Classics we want buyers and sellers to be connected on an emotional level, these kind of shots help us do that. Unfortunately Kabir has moved on but we wish him all the best for the future.

The 'gentlemen's express' displayed beautifully in this image. One of BMWs greatest ever creations, it is standing proudly in a drive and is begging to get driven. Great shot Darren!

We love this picture. A Subaru Impreza STi Cosworth CS400, one of two pre-production cars made and 75 in production. Jacob emphasises the aggressive nature of this car by taking a shot face on with the beamers making you squint in fear of a car that goes 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds. We thank Jacob for all of his work in 2019 and look forward to seeing more stunning shots in 2020.

Adam loves an E-type and we have a beautiful shot of one here. This 1966 example is looking stunning in the sun and we found it a great new home. Oh my, I just want to get in it.

I think Bond himself is upstairs right now, probably with one of his Bond girls or about to commit some kind of espionage. Kulraj is one of the owners here at Trade Classics and he will certainly be proud of this one, he is not even a professional photographer - must be the camera!

A fantastic shot of this 328 GTS. Sometimes a close up shot is better than the whole car itself. The blurred aerodynamics and crips wing mirror and a-pillar contrast beautifully in the British sun.

Wow! What a great shot, well done Matt! This Triumph TR6 was restored in 1980 even though it looks like the work was done just yesterday. As the sun goes down there is a slight warming effect in the air which makes the lighting on this photo absolutely stunning! We expect more like this in 2020 Matt!

A lot of contrasting light and shadow in this shots makes for a tasty screensaver! Taken by Stuart, we really like this one, check out his instagram to see what else he has to offer!

Hey Gary – I’m really sorry… they didn’t make the cut as it was just Kulraj and I taking the photos back then! We now have professional photographers, so your next cars may make the 2020 cut ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
