Porsche just announced an entry-level electric Taycan.
The 2021 rear-wheel drive entry-level Taycan will start at $79,900. With 402 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of instant torque, it’ll hit 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. The range of travel without charging is still low at 300 miles, but it’s getting there.
A broken country mourns and tries to heal, as it works again to become the United States of America…
I’ll be finished with my Covid-19 vaccination regime in March.
I’m looking forward to traveling on assignment across the USA soon!!
I’m taking time off from the blog as I recover from the shock and sadness of yesterday’s historic national disgrace. Continue reading “”
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Most of us probably would like to forget about last year and maybe even want to skip this year…
Here’s a tribute I created for the late Notorious R.B.G. near my home. Hope this cheers you up a little.
(This series consists of macro images I made of a 1973 Porsche Carrera RS Safari #19 1:43 scale model on my front steps. The real car competed in the 1974 East African Rally. My full feature of that 911 can seen in the January 2017 issue of PCA Panorama Magazine)
My dream car – a 1971 Porsche 911ST known as “Sloopy Jr”.
Followers of my blog know that at the end of each year I post a series of three personal images from a non-assignment single location.
In 2020, I took on even more commercial photography, along with some unique automotive editorial projects. That meant my personal work was even more important to provide some balance in my life.
So, I made a solo sojourn to the Palouse in Eastern Washington state in the spring of 2020 when the state’s Covid-19 restrictions opened up briefly. Here are a few of the images I made on that journey.
It’s a sincere honor to be awarded a cover feature in Porsche Club of America’s national magazine.
In the December 2020 issue of Panorama Magazine, there’s a 16-page story of mine that goes behind the scenes for a photoshoot of the Emory Motorsport’s AWD “AllRad” 356 Outlaw.
There, I illustrate and explain what goes into all my professional photo sessions. Photo tips are listed, some secrets are revealed, and a lot of fun ensues when Rod Emory coasts down a pre-planned route without a working engine!
Thanks to Rob Sass, Amy Skogstrom, Richard Baron, Vu Nguyen, Allen Lane, Doug Lloyd, and Emma Smith at the PCA!
The Fall 2020 issue of 000 Magazine tells a story about the original material used on the outside of the Porsche 914 roof. My images illustrate the unique textures used in the early ’70s. Yes, it’s esoteric and a bit complicated. Continue reading “”
Saturday Night Live with John Belushi as the “Samurai Optometrist” aired in November, 1978. I remember that night very well because a dozen of us optometry students were watching it live in a small apartment in Chicago while attending the Illinois College of Optometry. I don’t think anyone who was there has forgotten it.
For the artist, photographer, writer, or anyone else doing a job that looks like a lot of fun… Competition and rejection are part and parcel of what you will experience, especially early on. Believing in yourself is critical at this juncture. Continue reading “”
IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME – FLYING CARS
“The 1960s animated cartoon series – The Jetsons – is best remembered for its depiction of a future that just never seemed to get any closer (apart from video phones). And nothing about this future is more lamented than the prolonged absence of George Jetson’s flying electric car. The bad news: There are still no flying electric cars. The good news: Florida is building a place to park them.” Continue reading “”
THANKS FORZA – THE MAGAZINE ABOUT FERRARI
Thanks also… to garage manager Fred Russell, writer Jay Gillotti, and car owner Frank Mandarano (L to R), for making this recent Ferrari Daytona shoot so much fun.
Photographing two Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Spyders together is a dream come true for any car photographer. Only 122+ were made.
