In the downtown area I'd recommend the AAC, Victory Park, Myerson, Plaza of the Americas, McKinney Ave, Knox-Henderson, SMU. Trying to think of some where the ground level would be appealing and conducive for such.

Outside of downtown: Arboretum, White Rock Lake, Snider Plaza, Highland Park Village, Galleria, Addison Airport, Texas Motor Speedway. Find a spot at DFW where you can park at the end of a take-off runway and get a jet lifting off right behind/over the car.

I took one of our cars last year to a park around from me and was able to park it on the grass w/ nothing but trees and an all natural setting behind it.

Downtown/Uptown. Deep Ellum, Expo Park, Fair Park,. The bridges over the Trinity River. White Rock Lake is a fave but not really urban unless you can get some skyline view shots. Belmont Hotel Dallas Boutique Hotels, Dallas Texas Hotels | Belmont Hotel Dallas (http://www.belmontdallas.com/subscription.aspx - broken link) is a good place.

Thanks for the replies guys. I will have to scope them out. My girlfriend (the photographer) is taking engagement and portraits this weekend and up coming week so maybe next weekend. I will post on how it goes.

There are a couple of car shows every week so check them out and ask the people where they take their cars for pics too. There is one tonight in Garland at Taco Casa on Broadway and I30, Wednesdays I believe is Fat Daddy's in Dallas in the Casa Linda shopping center, Thursdays at Sammy Walkers BBQ in Rowlett and this coming Sunday there is one at White Rock Lake to benefit Buckners Childrens (this one is all British and European cars). You might find you a couple of great spots to shot pics of cars and get some business cards made up and start a little side business. There is a huge indoor car show coming up in October that Gaseline Alley is sponsoring that will have vendor booths.
