PERSONAL WORK – 2017

Followers of my blog know that at the end of each year I pick a series of what I consider to be my best three personal images from a non-assignment single location.

2017 was another amazing year. I experienced a lot of loss, but that just fed my creativity in new ways. These images were shot within 100 feet of my home in October with a Leica Q – an amazing camera.

Happy New Year!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

This month’s photo was created while assigned to a studio shoot of a Porsche Speedster.

Walking around the car, I noticed these framed mirrors reflecting certain sections of the Porsche. By using a tripod and careful framing, I was able to create the lead to a story I knew would be titled “Fill in the Blanks”.

P.S. This will be the last in this series for a while. It will resume sometime in 2018.

A big thank you to everyone at PCA’s Panorama Magazine for their amazing support.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Here’s a Celtic harvest delight – a Gulf Orange 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 that magically turns from a pumpkin into a carriage of immense delight.

I shot this one at sunrise among the wheat fields of the Palouse. Trick-or-treat? You decide. More

PURE GEOMETRY

It’s always fun to go out with the camera without an agenda. No ego, no goals, just play!

The challenge is to find a personal balance. Looks easy doesn’t it?

SPEEDSTER WARS

Check out my latest article for Road Scholars Magazine about an era when over 30 Porsche Speedsters would show up for a single event in California. With cameo appearances by James Dean and Steve McQueen, and Randy Leffingwell’s story of the America Roadster, the October 2017 issue is packed with lots of retro reading fun!

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

PIGS (Three Different Ones)

It’s 2017 and the first day of fall. It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been forty years since Pink Floyd released Animals. This album is still a great listen. Especially this track. All 17 minutes of it. The original UK vinyl sounds incredible. This is true for all Pink Floyd LPs, including the holy grail for record collectors, the original mono version of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn released 50 years ago.
