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!

BONNEVILLE SPEED WEEK 2018

I’ve just returned from a trip to Utah’s Bonneville Speedway where I filmed Tom Woodford attempting a record breaking run in his 3-liter dual MFI turbo powered 1975 911 on the salt flats.

He’s now in the 175 MPH Club with 180 & 192 MPH times!

It was a great week hanging out with Tom and the crew, including Walt Walters – plus my good friend, “the original outlaw”, Gary Emory.

Look for more photos and a film in the future.

Save the Salt!

LEAVING TOWN

One of my favorite cars to photograph left town today – to be delivered to its new owner. A Porsche 959, specifically this black on black example that was the last to leave the factory. It’s way beyond my price bracket. I just feel fortunate to have ridden in it and spent some time around it with my cameras.
