VINYL, LEICAS, AND THE EARLY 911

Coming soon…

I’ve been a record collector since I bought my first LP in 1964. Still have it. Leica film cameras and lenses followed in 1979. An early Porsche 911 was something I’ve wanted since I was 16. Had to wait until 1996 for that one. Now I have multiples of everything… Read about these passions in an upcoming on-line feature:

THE SHOT THAT IS NO LONGER

Yesterday, the new underground viaduct opened on Seattle’s waterfront. The old elevated Alaskan Way highway closed last month. It was the best spot to make a photograph with cars driving in front of the skyline. Fortunately, I made my shots before it was scheduled for removal.

THANKS TO PANORAMA

Porsche Club of America recently published my photos and text from September’s Rennsport Reunion VI in their national magazine Panorama. Here are three unpublished photos that I’d like to share with you.

The first two are of a Porsche race car from the ’60s. The last is a screenshot made at the Dhani Harrison concert that weekend in California. Great show!

EARLY 911 HEADLIGHT PHOTOS

Happy Halloween!

Thanks to Editor Pete Stout and 000 Magazine for the opportunity to photograph a feature on early Porsche 911 and 912 headlights.

Writer Mark Morrisey made the call, and expert collector Eric Linden provided the hardware. I shot everything in a mini-studio set up specifically to reduce reflections, yet still provide a controlled highlight. Thanks guys, that was fun!

EVERYBODY LOVES A PARADE

Porsche Club of America recently published my images in Panorama Magazine, with their coverage of the July 2018 PCA Parade in Missouri. The lead fireworks shot required a bit of pre-planning and a dash of luck and quick setup to capture.

Thanks to all for a fun time!
