SUMMER IS FOR CAR SHOWS

That’s what summer holiday mornings are for. Rolling out of bed, driving your favorite vehicle over to the local gathering, seeing your friends, and checking out the scene. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

THE LONG WAY ROUND

When you’ve been a full-time pro for as long as I have, you end up seeing a lot of stuff. Most of it is positively amazing. Like the first time you see the sun rise as an ocean storm clears in the middle of nowhere. Some of it is not, like professional jealousy.

There is always room at the top, though. And if you are lucky enough to have a partner that understands your journey – and you have talent, make smart choices, and are persistent – you can actually get there. Thanks, honey.

CREATIVITY IS A FUNNY THING – PART 1

Here’s an image I made at Bonneville Speed Week. Whether or not it’s good is up to you. More to come…

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 2019.

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.

PCA PANORAMA DOES IT AGAIN

Lead feature. Lead photo. I couldn’t be happier with this month’s issue of Panorama Magazine. It’s the first time my drone photos have been published in a printed piece. Thanks, Richard Baron.

I began using a DJI Mavic with Porsches in Mexico this spring and have been enamored with its capabilities ever since. Look for more aerial views in the future!

MAKING PORSCHE RACING HISTORY IN BAJA

Here’s a look back at the drama and beauty that I experienced in April while following a pair of Porsche 911s – off road down Baja.

Follow me and the Rothsport Racing team from Ensenada to San Jose del Cabo over jumps, river crossings and endless silt beds. The team made Porsche history finishing 1st and 2nd in class after five days of racing – but not without a few incidents!

914/6 GT TRIBUTE

For June, I’ll have a couple of publications. The first will be in PCA Porsche Panorama Magazine.

It had to be orange, of course. Just like virtually every other real 914/6 GT raced by the Porsche factory Werks department. This tribute GT also had to start as a 914/6 to be eligible for racing today. It needed to be heard before it was seen too. Thanks to straight through pipes and no real muffler to speak of, that’s assured. More

WHO ORIGINATED THE LOUVERED 911 REAR DECK LID?

Nobody knows… What we do know is that Rolly Resos sold a muti-louvered Porsche 911 rear decklid that he had picked up at a Pomano Swap meet to a long-haired guy in scruffy clothes at the German Autofest in 2002. That’s how the legend of the “Urban Outlaw” was born…

R GRUPPE TREFFEN

Yes, I’ve been to every R Gruppe Treffen – 18 in a row. This year’s event in Buellton, California featured great weather and camaraderie. Having a drone to photograph stills and video ensured it was even more special. Thanks to all my friends for a wonderful time.

MAY 911R GOODNESS

No, it wasn’t an April fool’s joke. This month’s Panormama Magazine features my interview with Kevin Jeannette and his purchase of Porsche’s 911R #15 for $9500. Check it out. It’s hilarious.
