PORSCHE WINS LE MANS AGAIN

With six hours to go they were 19 laps down. But that didn’t stop the Porsche 919 Hybrid team from clawing its way back to an overall win, its third consecutive Le Mans title.

Congrats to New Zealanders Earl Bamber and Brendon Hartley, and fellow factory driver from Germany Timo Bernhard for a heroic victory!

I’m at R Gruppe Treffen 2017 in Napa. And the timing couldn’t be better. My friend Eric Linden of Auto Foreign Services and his 1967 Porsche 911S have been setting R Gruppe trends for 20 years. More

GT WINNER IN PCA PANORAMA

Kudos to the folks at Panorama Magazine for publishing a feature of mine in their April issue. It’s an R Gruppe award-winning 1973 Porsche 911 hot rod in Signal Yellow that Steve Baker built over 11 years. The result is a stunning car and a fun read!

ANOTHER COVER

Simplify simplify, simplify. It’s easy to overlook how powerful a detail can be when composing a photograph. Thanks to the crew at PCA Pacific Northwest Region’s Spiel Magazine for choosing my image for this month’s cover.

CAYENNE

Porsche’s SUV has turned out to be the perfect daily driver for my wife and I. All-wheel drive, great visibility, comfortable, not too big for city parking – but enough storage capacity to haul all our gear and still function as a camera car. Love it!

SINGER IN SUN VALLEY

Thanks to Singer Vehicle Design rep Deb Pollack and PCA magazine editor Amy Skogstrom for putting together this assignment for me. The current issue of Porsche Panorama features a “reimagined” 911 that I spent the weekend with in Idaho last summer. Yeah, it was an experience that I’ll never forget!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

On the first of every month I’ll be posting about a photograph I made.

This month we look at an image I created in 2010. It’s an Aga Blue 1973 911E parked in front of some old quonset huts in Orange County. The car’s owner and I scouted this unusual set of buildings and arrived at dawn the next day. More
