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.

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.

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!

VW ELECTRIC CAR SETS NEW RECORD TIME AT PIKES PEAK

Today, Romain Dumas took his Volkswagen I.D. R EV to a new record time of 7:57.148 over 12 miles and 156 curves to 9,000 feet in Colorado. Sebastion Loeb’s previous record at 8:13.878 set in 2013 with a gas powered Peugeot 208 T16 seemed unreachable. Welcome to the age of the electric car that Porsche helped design…

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!
