Niceness Breeds Niceness

You may be surprised, or not, about the hundreds of inquiries FordMuscle receives monthly from manufacturers, public relations representatives, and sole proprietors looking to have their products or services promoted on FordMuscle. 99.9% of these inquiry types come in the form of a generic email blast with no personal touch or attempt to connect with the site administrators. Nor do the inquiries make an attempt to offer you, the community, a value proposition. Needless to say, if an inquiry doesn't show personality, real thought, or value, then it goes in the trash.

Today however, in a rare display, we received a kind and personal email from an aspiring photographer simply looking to have her automotive photography shown on FordMuscle. While its got to be tough making a profession of photography during the digital era, here are some beautiful shots from Candace West.

I am sure she would love to hear your thoughts on her photos, so please sound off here. And please, resist the tempatation to trash the GM photos. Focus on the art you muggs!

Re: Niceness Breeds Niceness

Just noticed the rusty tailight one is either a photo of a car painted on a fence or some real trick photoshop work (or a filter!). That's my favorite of the batch, don't know what car it is though. Anybody?

Re: Niceness Breeds Niceness

That is also my favorite and is a painting of the back of a 53 Ford Customline Victoria!

Yes, she obviously paints too

Re: Niceness Breeds Niceness

It's even more obvious that she painted that either from a picture or on site...

Too many details missing to be a picture that's been filtered, and too correct to have done it from memory unless it's a pornographic memory like mine.

Good stuff!

Re: Niceness Breeds Niceness

Judging from the pic of Cadillac Ranch in the Panhandle and the truck with the blue/red/lonestar on the the hood. She must be doing some of her shoots here in Texas. Gotta say, the pic of the old chevy with the trunk in the bed is pretty cool.

It's all good. Regardless of manufacturer, I love the rusty,"field fresh" pics. Good luck to her. Maybe consider allowing her to submit a snapshot of the month..........Just a thought. Good for you guys as well, for the positive note for her.

respectfully,
