When I tell people “Wow” it is for one of two reasons, it either means, “I’m really impressed” or it means “I am utterly at a loss for words”. When I say “that’s hilarious” it only means one thing: “Are you kidding?” Most of the time I don’t say anything and just listen.
THANK YOU PORSCHE CLUB OF AMERICA
A cover using your photograph is always special. I’ve received many of them over the years, but this one really makes me smile.
Thanks to PCA, Panorama Magazine and their staff for this recognition in the October issue. Continue reading “”
VINYL IS HOT
In the last five years new vinyl LP sales in the USA have doubled to over 30 million units sold per year. That’s more than new CD sales today, and these numbers don’t include used record purchases.
Prior to 2016, the sales numbers for new vinyl was increasing but not anywhere this rate. Only problem is, most everything currently released on LP is on backorder. This is primarily due to increased demand and decreased supply (due in no small part to the small number of pressing plants and the lack of vinyl pellets). See this for more:
Joel Bernstein was a young man interested in photography during the late 1960s.
He was lucky enough to hook up with some folk rock musicians before they became famous. “Almost famous” describes his life, and it might be used to describe mine. We were both very fortunate to be given an opportunity at just the right time. Continue reading “”
THANK YOU AGAIN PORSCHE 356 REGISTRY MAGAZINE
Thanks to editor Peter Bodensteiner and the team for including my work in their 356 magazine this month. My inside feature with Steve Terrien’s 1961 356 Sunroof Carrera GS tells the story of his ownership of the car for almost 40 years. Check it out.
I made this photograph of endless waves in stormy weather in the late ’90s at Newport Beach, Rhode Island. It’s always struck a nerve with me.

BACK FROM MONTEREY CAR WEEK
What a phenomenal show. There were so many highlights to recount. Certainly, one was the thirteen Porsche 917s brought together for a once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot on Saturday at Pebble Beach in Carmel, California. Wow.
Thanks to writer Jay Gillotti, who invited me to make the photos for the Porsche Club of America’s Panorama Magazine feature. It was great to reconnect (and connect) with many new and old clients and friends over the weekend.
Congrats to Luke Veselic on his feature in the latest issue of Porsche Panorama Magazine. We traveled to the furthest back roads of the Santa Monica mountains north of Los Angeles to write about the 1982 911 SC Targa that Luke inherited from his father and a 2019 911 Carrera T that Luke recently purchased.
The light that evening was magical and made for some great photos and memories.
Canon began as a Japanese company called Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory in 1933. When the company started to manufacture cameras, it named them “Kwanon”, which is the name of the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. Continue reading “”
The Summer 2021 issue of 000 Magazine tells a story of the “Surface” material used on the 1968 Porsche 911S. My images illustrate the unique “Buffalo Hide” treatment used on the interior of this special Euro model. Yes, it’s esoteric and a deep dive. And that’s just what 000 wants. Continue reading as you can…
It’s good to be back home after a busy week in French Lick, Indiana. Lots of early mornings photographing cars, concours and autocross for the Porsche Club of America Panorama Magazine. Look for full coverage when my words and pictures appear in the October issue!
The super rare Porsche color of Moonstone (light Lilac) appears in PCA’s Panorama Magazine for the first time with a feature using my photos and text in the July issue.
A 924 and 911 in the obtuse shade of Moonstone is a special treat to see (only a dozen were made in 1979-1980). I’ll probably never see another Porsche in this color again. Thanks to Justin Roeser for the opportunity to shoot his two cars together.
