Jason Bickford Photography


Jason has combined his passion for period custom cars and photography and created some photos in recent years that take you back in time

Jason Bickford loves to take photo, with his digital camera, phone, but also his old fashion film roll camera. In this article we highlight some of the photos Jason took with his old camera loaded with an old way over time roll of film. The result is really amazing. The slides, which have faded colors from being on the shelve too long, were scanned as they are. No attention was paid to removing dust or scratches.Jason also spend a lot of time trying to make sure the least amount of “modern” details would show in the background. His efforts really payed off. This gives you the feeling you are looking at some early 1950’s color photos, but in fact they were taken in recent years.
We hope you will enjoy Jason’s photos as much as we do.

  • Wow some great pictures! The low angle shots are my favourite. That low front shot of Jeff’s Merc is incredible.

  • Wow….. what else can I say. Those are really good pics and shot on film. 🙂 Pretty refreshing to see these in the digital age we live in. I wish we got to see this more often. Jason took some real timeless pictures right here. The Delmar winners circle shots are great. I wish I had the correct tires on my car then. Never knew these were taken until a couple of years after the show. The low front end shot is very similar to the low front end shot of Jerry Quesnel’s 1951 Popular Science magazine shot. The pics of Fishs’ 36 are really good. Great shots Jason.
