IF YOU’RE THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE ROOM, IT’S TIME TO FIND A NEW ROOM

2023 could be that new room.

One can always improve. You might need to expand your horizons however.

Fifty years ago Porsche’s 917 race car was a departure from what had come before. So was the Rega turntable. It was the result of thinking outside the box. In the short tail configuration with Gulf livery the 917 was unbeatable, so it was eventually outlawed, of course. But it was something else in the early ’70s wasn’t it?

The photograph I made above is also something else. Has it been done before? I’ve never seen it. However, what really matters is that it is something new for me.

STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE STORIES AND CARS

A Carrera GT Speedster built by Porsche in the 1950s is still one of my faves. I’ve been given the opportunity to photograph and write about another of these rare hot rods for a feature, and it will be coming out soon. Here’s the opening spread of the last one I photographed back in 2012. Love this stuff!

NEW COVER THIS MONTH

Everyone knows Porsche is my favorite marque. So, it’s with much pleasure that I announce my latest September 2022 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! It was a joy to photograph and write about you!

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.

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!

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!

PORSCHE BACK IN FORMULA 1?

Word is Porsche and Audi are planning to join Formula 1 in 2026. Working in F1 as powertrain suppliers, Porsche is considering working in conjunction with Red Bull Racing, and Audi could be supplying McLaren. It’s all dependent on how parent company Volkswagen decides to allocate development costs across its racing teams. The last time Porsche was in F1 was with the MP4/2C TAG engine in a McLaren during the ’80s.
