Photo Tips

Photos play an important role
in our consignment process

Not only do they help our team evaluate and establish value, they also serve as the first interaction potential buyers have with your car through the RKM Collector Car Auctions website. To ensure your car is represented to its full potential, here are a few helpful tips for taking high-quality photos:

  • Tip 1

    Clean the car thoroughly. Dress the tires, vacuum the interior and detail the engine bay. These are all areas that need to be very well represented in photos.

  • Tip 2

    For best lighting, shoot with the sun behind you so that light accents the lines of your car. Shooting into the sun tends to darken the subject of the photograph.

  • Tip 3

    Ensure the background is free of common distractions such as garbage cans, overgrown grass or anything else that may draw attention away from the car.

  • Tip 4

    Shoot from a variety of angles as referenced below. These are standard shots and flattering to almost every vehicle.
