Senior Nikky Lewis may not drive cars, but he takes pictures of some of the most high-profile guys.
Lewis specializes in European and exotic cars, his favorites being the McLaren P1 GTR and the Pagani Zonda 760.
The eldest has a two-step process he does with each client, using Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom to enhance his photos.
“Another really important thing that’s overlooked in photography is my technological side,” Lewis said. “I take suggestions of what my clients envision in my work and try to make it a reality.”
Lewis shares his work via Instagram, where most of his clientele owns specialty automobiles.
He has had an interest in cars since childhood, when his father sparked his interest after taking him to the Los Angeles Auto Show. Lewis decided to take his love for cars to another level by becoming a photographer.
He had the opportunity to take photos of cars across the country and meet many people in the industry. “It gave me a greater perspective of the world. Meeting so many interesting people and going to so many interesting places that if I hadn’t been in those circumstances, I wouldn’t have gone there,” said he declared.
Lewis’ experiences and time in the industry helped motivate him to become his best self. He has ties to people in the industry and direct ties to automotive companies.
“One thing I find so great about photography and art is that you just have to take your imagination as far as it goes, so I never say there’s a limit to the opportunities.”
