WOW

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.

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:

THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD FEELS LIKE SOMETIMES

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.

THE ROAD TRAVELED

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.

MOONSTONE COMES TO PANORAMA MAGAZINE

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.
