Rob Bishop Photography...

Rob Bishop has been involved in photography since taking classes in college back in the 60's in Bakersfield California. He began shooting auto racing, and motorcycle racing, and sold B&W photos to drivers and riders and had many shots published in newspapers and magazines over the years. He also spent time doing every type of photography there is from weddings to school photos to television news.

From day one his real interest was in photography as a form of art. Rob often tried selling matted and framed pieces in galleries over the years with mixed success. In 2003, Rob moved to digital cameras and began spending a lot of time photographing car shows.

In 2008 Rob published Hot Rods and Cool Customs/California Car Shows in which a lot of the photos in the book capture the styling of the cars as an art form. Rob was formally a co-owner of an art gallery for a while in Cambria California and was selling some of his car images as framed art. His partner kept telling him that he should approach the car owners about making personalized photo books of their cars. Now Rob is in Santa Maria and doing that exact thing with highly detailed images of your cars, projects and workshop. The price is not bad at all for a personalized coffee table style book of all your own cars.

The book that he published is really used as an example of what he can do. Since the book Rob's style has become even more detailed and his newer images are on a number of Internet sites.

Scalloped Ranchero...

This Ranchero has a very nice scalloped paint job with a good color combination.  The cars from the late fifties have the perfect body lines for scallops.  When I was growing up in the 1980s the scallop paint jobs came back in style but most of them missed the mark and did not flow with the body lines, not to mention the colors used were not very pleasing.  This one did it right.

The '46 Ford Coupe...

This has been an amazing car.  It has a very nice stock look and since I lowered it the appearance changed drastically.  Just by adding skirts it took on the Kustom look and finally I was able to buff the paint and add full hubcaps.  This car has taken on a completely different look and I am very happy with the outcome.  I don't know if I want to chop this one or keep it the way it is.  I do have a good idea for the grille without doing much work at all.  I will keep you posted.
