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.

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

PALOUSE MAGIC

A big thank you to everyone at PCA’s Panorama Magazine for their amazing support. This Back Story photo and text was assigned by Richard Baron and made possible with the generosity of Ron Roland (1952 Porsche America Roadster owner) and Sarah Scott (older barn and younger owner). You folks make my job so much easier!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

Here’s a story that seems appropriate today. Twenty years ago I hired a pilot to fly me over the Everglades at sunrise to photograph the damage from Hurricane Andrew. More

IRMA MEETS FLORIDA

My thoughts go out to my friends in the Southeastern U.S. during hurricane season. These Ibises are native to Sanibel Island, FL and will hopefully survive.

CMYK REVISITED

OK, so we know about Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. But can we include each color into one photograph without Photoshop?

Yes we can! This untouched image was made near one of my favorite towns, Pt. Reyes Station, CA. Don’t forget to calibrate your monitor.
