Does anyone know of anywhere on the beach in North or South Carolina where you can drive a car onto, for photography purposes?

Generally, you can drive 4-wheel drive vehicles on the sand during the winter months. However, I don't think it is smart to drive a normal car on the sand unless you want it to get stuck.

I would probably find a parking lot with a sand dune for background and "fake it".

Many beaches prohibit driving on the beach entirely, and as goldenage notes, some allow it only in winter. Its legal year around (more or less) on portions of the Outer Banks. Also Freeman Park in Carolina Beach and Ft. Fisher State Park.

FREEMAN PARK REGULATIONS A Freeman Park Management Plan is in place to protect the environment and public interest in the Park and to discourage unauthorized entry onto adjacent private property

And as goldenage also notes, if its not a 4 wheel drive vehicle, you won't make it.

Is Freeman Park an area where you could drive a car, or would it require 4 wheel drive like the north end?

Our sand is way softer than what you see somewhere like Daytona where all grades of vehicles are on the beach. You need 4wd and high clearance, and probably need to air down your tires before driving onto the sand.
