NEW COVER THIS MONTH

Everyone knows Porsche is my favorite marque. So, it’s with much pleasure that I announce my latest cover for the Porsche Club of America’s national magazine Panorama. It’s about the people with this club. That’s why I love working with them so much.

Austin Urfer and his father decided to buy a 944 Turbo together. “All in the Family” is my September 2022 cover feature, where they share their journey together, with a bit of my personal journalistic slant added in. Enjoy this PCA “Youth Issue”, lots of good stuff!

CAROL MADONNA AND HER PORSCHE 356

Carol Madonna of Southern California is the proud owner of this 356B Super 90 in metallic blue, a color that matches the nearby Pacific Ocean perfectly. Her independent nature is encouraging to see as she frequently tours to Porsche club events solo and with friends. Congrats for being published in the latest issue of the Porsche 356 Registry magazine with your cool car!

THANK YOU PACIFIC NORTHWEST REGION PORSCHE CLUB OF AMERICA

It’s an honor to have my Porsche photographs gracing the revolving image banner of my PCA region’s website home page.

A member since 1996, I’ve photographed local events and many member’s cars. My images have also been featured in the region’s award-winning magazine, Spiel, and several have made the cover.

Thanks again guys and gals!

GARY EMORY

Gary Emory and his son Rod represent the best of modern day Porsche fabricators. Their 356 outlaws are legendary. I’ve known them both for over 20 years. They are the real deal and continue to contribute to the Porsche 356 hot rod community every day as they have for decades.

Gary’s original vision and Rod’s hands-on artistry have produced hundreds of iconic renditions of the cars many of us love.

Check out my in-depth feature on Gary and the family in the latest PCA Panorama Magazine.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE YOUR PHOTO MIGHT SHOW UP

The Chicane is an on-line blog that features what they consider the best automotive images. Surprisingly, one of my photos was featured on their blogscroll in May, and I just came across it. I guess they found it on Tumblr where photo credits are rare. Uncredited here, when you drag and drop it, buried in the jpeg metadata is my 2013 copyright notice. No worries…

THE 4TH OF JULY

It seems the 4th of July means something different every year.

For me, what I feel is sadness. At the same time, I’m grateful that I experienced the best of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. It was a wonderful time to be young in America.

I made this image of Mt. Rushmore from a low-flying helicopter in the ’80s. I probably wouldn’t be allowed to do it today. Not sure I’d want to.

The image below is one I made last month.

Think deeper. Be safe.

BACK FROM PORSCHE PARADE

Once again, the Porsche Club of America sent me to cover their annual Parade. This year the big event was held in the Poconos of Pennsylvania. Over 1000 Porsches attended, among them this rare 1992 Euro Carrera 911 RS in Raspberry.

Thanks to the whole Panorama Magazine team for all the good times and photo ops. Look for my features to be published in the coming months.

JUST BACK FROM A LONG ROAD TRIP

It’s good to be back home, but it’s also exciting to have had such a productive journey last month. I photographed 15 cars, 11 of them in 4 days, and made some new friends in the Porsche 356 and 911 communities along the way. Here’s a photo I made with my Leica Q on a windy day along Rte 66, one of my favorite roads.

BRING A TRAILER

I’ve been working with clients directly to photograph and film their car for sale on BAT. The results have been remarkably well received by everyone, and it’s provided me with another outlet for short videos that provide engaging content and another way to tell a story. Look for my most recent work on this blog journal soon!

THANKS PANO!

Porsche Club of America has been very good to me over the years. This month, their national magazine, Panorama, has honored me with a short bio and multi-page essay featuring my photographs made at the 2021 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. There, I photographed a very rare gathering of Porsche 917 race cars, partnering with writer Jay Gillotti, who did a great job telling the story of these magnificent icons. Thanks again for their support at the Pano editorial staff – Vu Nguyen, Rob Sass, Amy Skogstrom, Emma Smith, Doug Lloyd, Allen Lane and Richard Baron!
