THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

This month’s photo was created while assigned to a studio shoot of a Porsche Speedster.

Walking around the car, I noticed these framed mirrors reflecting certain sections of the Porsche. By using a tripod and careful framing, I was able to create the lead to a story I knew would be titled “Fill in the Blanks”.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Here’s a Celtic harvest delight – a Gulf Orange 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 that magically turns from a pumpkin into a carriage of immense delight.

I shot this one at sunrise among the wheat fields of the Palouse. Trick-or-treat? You decide. More

MEXICAN 1000 FILM AND ARTICLE PREMIERE

The Porsche Club of America just launched my six-minute video about a pair of Rothsport Porsche 964s racing in the 2017 Baja Mexican 1000 Rally.

After five days of blasting over 1,000 miles of rough terrain, the team beat all the odds by not only finishing but winning a trophy, a feat no Porsche has ever accomplished in Mexico. Until now. More

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

Summer’s here and it’s time for a blistering image that has an interesting back story.

Bonneville Salt Flats is ground zero for land speed records. It’s also a cooker in the summer. The white surface acts like a huge reflector that throws light everywhere. This portrait is one example.

I had set up a flash to camera right and was ready to set my exposure. I fired a test shot, but it was way overexposed at 1/13 of a second. More

PORSCHE PARADE – SPOKANE

Busy, busy, busy… Juggling six or more assignments at a time is always a challenge. Fortunately the 2017 Porsche Parade last week in Spokane was delightful. Lots of great cars and people, with plenty of things to do and places to go. Look for my photos in a future issue of PCA’s Panorama Magazine.
