THE ARCHITECT MOVIE:
MY CAMEO ROLE AS A PHOTOGRAPHER
I have a non-speaking (camera noise making) role in a new film called “The Architect” showing this week on TCM and SHOWTIME. Look for me at 1hr 29 minutes! And don’t blink…

Kudos to Porsche Panorama creative director Richard Baron and editor Amy Skogstrom for their amazing layout and edit on my 2012 Cayenne “overlanding” story.
That summer day I spent off-roading in the Pacific Northwest with “Otis” owners, the Ranhofers, was appropriately muddy. So, we were able to get the perfect shots for the December 2016 issue of PCA’s national magazine. For more words and pictures about this exciting adventure sport see this link:

Walt Disney, America’s animated film producer, inventor of Tinkerbell, and founder of Disneyland, lived and died this week, 115 and 50 years ago respectively. It’s remarkable how his legacy has only continued to grow in stature.
Happy birthday, honey.

MID-ENGINED 911 RSR
This is big news and could be the start of something new for Porsche’s iconic sports car model. Air cooled has been a thing of the past since 1998. Could rear engines be too? Look for how the new RSR does at Le Mans for an indication of what’s to come.

IT’S WHAT I DO
An automotive photographer recently confided in me that he was having trouble with his car-to-car shots.
I told him the same photo tips I will tell you.
Great photos are made when the photographer is in the zone, has something to say about their subject, and puts all their attention on these eight things – unconsciously:
1. Light / Color
5. Some technical stuff: Lens Choice / Shutter Speed / Aperture
6. Camera Position
8. The Moment

Congrats to my friend Jerry Wynne and his 1972 911 hot rod built by Phil Troiani. This car was featured in Excellence Magazine over six pages, for which I am very grateful. It’s always a pleasure when you connect with interesting characters in my line of work. Jerry’s life is one of those amazing stories you’ll feel good hearing about.
MORE FALL COLOR
This forest of Quaking Aspens in Colorado was peaking when I came across it. I just posted some more fall color on Instagram – thanks to everyone for your warm reception to my images!
