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 & 191 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.

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.

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!

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.

CAMERON AND ERIC HEALY WIN AT THE MEXICAN 1000

A production-based Porsche 911 has never won its class at a Baja 1000 off-road race. Cameron Healy (driver) and Eric Healy (navigator) took the win in the 2018 NORRA Mexican 1000 Vintage Stock Production Cars class piloting a Rothsport Racing Porsche Safari 964. Teammates Jeff Gamroth and Tim Ralston of Rothsport Racing finished second. Congrats to all!

THE ULTIMATE 928 DIY RESTORATION

“Minerva’s Journey” is a behind the scenes look at what it takes to rebuild a 166,000-mile Porsche from the tub up to “as new” stock condition nearly 40 years after it left the factory.

William Anast and Rob Edwards deserve big kudos for this month’s publication of their 1978 928 refurbishment in PCA’s Panorama Magazine. This was an epic journey in more ways than one.

WHO CAN SEE IT

If you’re interested in travel photography as a full-time profession, here are some reflections from a 23 year-old giving it all he’s got. Unfortunately, as hard as he tries, his plan is likely to fail over the long term.

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT

As a full-time pro for over 25 years, the gear I take on assignment depends on what is needed. Contrary to what it might look like, I prefer to work with the minimum amount of equipment. More

HAPPY VALENTINE DAY TRAVELS!

Somehow, I never got around to this. But in 2018, I’ll be spending some time visiting hotels with vinyl and turntables. There are some pretty cool suites where a guest can play LPs in their room. First stop is the Kimpton Goodland in Santa Barbara. I’ll be staying at more of these hip establishments over the next few months and will keep you posted on what I find.

MPG AWARD FINALIST… AGAIN

Well, I suppose I can toot my horn a bit, although the Motor Press Guild winners won’t be announced until next month. I was very fortunate to have a great project fall in my lap last year. Jeff Gamroth called and asked if I would like to document his Rothsport Racing Team effort at the 2017 Baja Mexican 1000 Rally. I said yes of course. More
