Good car photo shoot location

Can anyone recommend a location for car photo shoot with a nice lake and/or mountain view, max 1h drive from Zurich?

Re: Good car photo shoot location

Yes, I took some photos of my cooper s nearly 19 years ago on a road from the lake at einsiedeln to Schwyz. Its very picturess. I took photos at the sihlsee then drove to Schwyz via oberiberg, ibergeregg. This from memory but I am sure its that road. My idea when I did this was to drive as high as possible to see the view and be spontaneous. Hope this helps a little.

There's a nice spot in Thalwil where I go usually for my saturday morning coffee. It also doubles as a good backdrop for photo-shoots.

Well, not really "peculiar" yet. Only S4 Avant while my family have grown. Wanted a combination of sport and utility vehicle.

Any suggestions which is? More sporty than A4 (although less than RS4) and more utility than sedan. Within my budget it was fine for now.

That's a great shot. "Ferrari on the disabled parking spot" is a classic theme in and around Zurich...

Re: Good car photo shoot location

I think the best advice is that you pick a plain background with constant colour. You're trying to sell the car, remember, not the landscape
